You’ve probably heard of using echinacea for the common cold, ginger for nausea, or chamomile for a more restful sleep.  As a Naturopathic Doctor, I have studied hundreds of herbs. I have extensive training related to the safe use and prescription of herbs to avoid unwanted and potentially dangerous interactions with medications and/or certain health conditions.

I practice the art of combining herbs to create powerful synergistic effects. I love using herbs in practice because I can make custom formulas based on a client’s individual personality and health needs.

I prescribe herbs either in capsule, liquid (called a tincture), or tea form. I source these products directly from companies that only use organic, sustainably sourced herbs.
