I enable people to reach a higher level of health and vitality. I use cutting-edge science to create custom intravenous regenerative therapies that promote wellness, prevent age-related decline, reverse chronic disease and enhance energy.
I am passionate about helping people experience a higher level of health and vitality. As such, my clinical practice focuses on preventing, reversing, and taming chronic disease, neuro-regeneration, and anti-aging. I specialize in nutrition & lifestyle, IV micronutrient therapy, and identifying the underlying causes of disease using advanced testing.
I have practiced integrative & natural medicine for nearly 20 years. I've also held leadership positions in medical schools, NIH research, public health, and clinical practice. I received my doctorate in naturopathic medicine in 2003 from Bastyr University, where I also did my residency.
I was awarded a prestigious NIH fellowship at the University of Washington where I conducted and published research on health behavior change, nutraceuticals, and health system innovation in pursuit of shifting the focus from disease treatment to health creation.
Some highlights include:
Medical Director at Bastyr University - California
6 years at Pacific Pearl, an internationally renowned integrative medicine center focused on cardiology.
Starting a grant supported natural medicine community clinic for seniors in Edmonds, WA which continues to thrive and serve the community over a decade later.
Publishing over 30 peer-reviewed research papers on topics including Echinacea and vitamin D, diabetes, nutrigenomics, integrative nutrition, and the meaning of health & wellness.
Leading international health retreats in Italy, Mexico, Canada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and the British Virgin Islands.
10 years of primary care and integrative endocrinology on a hospital campus in Seattle, WA.
Patients with “undiagnosed” conditions such as fatigue, cognitive decline, and autoimmune conditions often ask “why didn’t other doctors look into my health this thoroughly?” I believe that patients bring as much expertise to the conversation as doctors and as such, I honor a team-based approach to health.
I enjoy working with people with neuro-degenerative conditions and those hoping to prevent them. I also work with endocrine and hormone conditions, auto-immune disease, cardiovascular concerns, people ready for lifestyle transformation, families who want to get healthy and stay healthy together, and anyone looking for a preventive, proactive, wellness-oriented doctor. When not partnering with patients in healing, I try to walk the talk. I stoke my own health racing sailboats, staying active & eating well, playing with my dog, and surrounding myself with inspired people who make me laugh.
