I want women to feel like the amazing superheros they are:
I have worked hard in research and clinical practice to help many and CAN’T wait to help you! If you are ready to take your health to the next level, let’s talk!
Schedule a FREE 15-min discovery call with me to see if we are a good fit. I am taking a limited number of patients because I want to be able to offer the high-level, in-depth care that everyone deserves. If you or someone you know is looking for a women's health, functional medicine, hormone specialist, don't hesitate!
I've spent a good part of these past 5 years listening, reflecting, reading, and taking notes on what women want most from their health care providers.
Through this process, I've become laser focused on treating the top things that I've found women are MOST bothered by:
► Low Libido and/or Painful Sex
► Trouble Sleeping
► Wacky Hormones
► Body Composition and/or Weight Changes
► Difficulty Concentrating
► Night sweats/Hot Flashes
► Mood (Anxiety, Depression, Irritability)
► Hair Changes
► Unhappy Skin
I am dedicated to help resolve these concerns from a functional, integrative, and naturopathic medical perspective, and am incredibly excited to have JUST launched a program in Portland, Maine that will address all of these concerns and more! You don't have to tackle your health alone, and you don't have to live in Maine to access my care!

I've devoted much of my career to helping couples get pregnant through the most natural means possible. This is driven in large part by my own experience: I had both my daughters after 35, and experienced many common concerns and challenges, including early pregnancy loss. While every fertility journey is unique, I know the value of sharing our stories in order to better support one another.
I work with patients in all different stages of their reproductive journey. For couples looking to optimize their health and fertility before trying, to those having trouble getting pregnant, and postpartum care, I identify effective, non-invasive natural medicine steps they can take. I also advise couples going through IVF to help optimize outcomes for healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.
Preconception and fertility services include:
Health optimization before pregnancy
Inability to become pregnant
There is a growing body of research that shows early health care before pregnancy can help avoid chronic disease in our little ones. One of the reasons I love supporting families in preconception, fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum care is that it’s one of the best ways to support future generations of healthy and resilient children and adults; the ultimate in preventative health care.
Throughout my career, my mission has been to ensure that companies and individuals have access to the information, education, and solutions they need for optimal health.
Early in my medical studies, I realized that I wanted to understand not just how to diagnose and treat patients, but how to interpret, design, and conduct the research that powers medical decisions both in conventional and natural medicine. By continuing to immerse myself in contemporary medical research, I’m able to bring an evidence-based naturopathic approach to working with patients and clients. I split my time between private practice and research, and am frequently asked to contribute my expertise in speaking, writing, and research consultation. Currently, I am a medical advisor and research consultant to LOLA, the first lifelong brand for women, and Real Beauty Food, a natural food and beverage skincare company.
