Practice and Philosophy

My practice reflects my philosophy of what constitutes deep healing. My intention with each patient is to guide the resolution of physical symptoms, as well as support the vital energy that is essential for a sense of wholeness and vitality. Discerning the root of any disorder or imbalance is as important as resolving symptoms. In that regard, I employ a wide range of approaches to assist the changing physical and energetic dynamic.

I am particularly drawn to plant medicines, and work with them employing their powerful physical properties as well as the energetic spirit of each botanical.   These gifts of nature are gentle but deep acting as they help open and access the foundations of issues and support movement and transformation of old patterns in the physical, emotional and spiritual realms. Each patient is unique and depending on constitution, the underlying imbalance, and current health concerns, I may also use homeopathy, diet and nutritional approaches, and counseling. For conditions involving pain, inflammation or injury, I often use Biopuncture™, fine injections of dilute homeopathic formulas that stimulate a deep healing response.

Medicine has always been what has impassioned me, and I initially attained a post-graduate degree in Physiotherapy from LaTrobe University in Melbourne, Australia in 1993 and then went on to complete a 2-year hospital residency at the Austin hospital in Melbourne, Australia. I then worked for several years in private phsiotherapy clinics in Melbourne, Australia as well as in Greenwich, CT, and Seattle, WA.

My desire to broaden my ability to help people recover from illness and optimize their health led me beyond physical therapy to study internal medicine. In 2005 I graduated from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington with a degree in Naturopathic Medicine and completed two years of family practice residency. Over the past 12 years I have served as an Adjunct Faculty member at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, managed a Diabetes and Cardiovascular wellness clinic working with medical students overseeing patient care, and worked in Seattle in private practice.

Today, I continue to feel excited and interested in integrative natural medicine and feel fortunate to work in a field where I am constantly learning and growing, collaborating with patients in their health care journeys and sharing knowledge with colleagues. Healing is multidimensional and it is an honor to work with patients to resolve health issues, gently support transformative change, and help each person to become better able to reach their potential.
