One of the reasons I can be helpful to you is that I have been there myself. My own health issues were not responding to Western medicine, so I stopped working in that field in 1998 and took a position at the Bolles Natural Medicine Clinic in Bellevue, WA where I worked and learned alongside a Naturopathic physician. I have always been driven by curiosity and much of my knowledge has been self-initiated. Some of my favorite training has come from Andrew Cutler PhD, Dr. Denis Wilson, The American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine.
I graduated in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Iowa and worked as a Registered Nurse for seven years before pursuing my Master of Nursing degree from the University of Washington. Upon completion of my Master’s in Nursing 1991, I took a position as Nurse Practitioner in geriatrics and internal medicine at Group Health Cooperative in Seattle. I opened my private practice in Seattle in 1999.
My primary aim in my practice is to optimize your digestion and hormone balance while taking a slow and steady approach to detoxing your body of heavy metals and fat soluble toxins such as pesticides. The initial discussion of your health is very thorough; this enables me to choose the best protocol for your health. I have a wide range of experience, having helped people from autistic toddlers to one-hundred year olds with cancer and macular degeneration.
