I am a Naturopathic Physician specializing in integrated cancer care, combining Conventional and Natural Medicine. I am a Graduate of Bastyr University and a Fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology. My treatment modalities include; research and clinically based nutrition, evidence based and historical uses of botanical medicine and individualized meditation instruction, exercise plans and therapeutic yoga to optimize immune function and stress management.
I offer consultations for individuals with a cancer diagnosis, before, during and after conventional treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation). I also offer family members or those with a strong family history consultations focusing on cancer prevention. My patients receive a medical plan to reduce and heal from the side effects of treatments, strengthen the body, improve quality of life and enhance overall health.
I am a certified Therapeutic Yoga and Meditation teacher and I see the body’s inherent healing capacity. I am also an educator and speaker at the University of Washington Medical and Nursing Schools, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Oncology Nursing Society, American Cancer Society, Gilda’s Club, Cancer Lifeline, Bastyr University and many hospitals around the country. I completed my residency and was a staff physician at Seattle Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center.
My primary practice is in San Luis Obispo and biweekly in Santa Barbara, California. I travel to Seattle, Washington quarterly seeing established patients. My naturopathic services are available by appointment only in person, via phone or Skype.
