How I Began
A proud native of Houston, TX, I found Naturopathic Medicine through my own health struggles, specifically Endometrosis. Having experienced the healing power of nature myself, I decided to pursue a career that could serve others and empower my patients to take control of their health. I hold a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ (2016), where I received extensive training in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Botanical Medicine, Nutrition and Homeopathy. I also completed three years of General Medicine at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medical Center. I also hold a Master's of Science in Non-Profit Management (2009) and a Bachelor's of Arts from Our Lady of the Lake University in Political Science (2005) where I was chosen as a McNair Scholar, in San Antonio, TX. I recently graduated from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture and hold a Master's in Acupuncture (2019).
I absolutely LOVE being a Primary Care Doc, but I do have a special interest in Pain, Depression, Anxiety and Women's health. I absolutely love Naturopathic Medicine and uncovering the medical puzzles of the bodies we live in.
I am also a Health at Every Size provider and DO NOT WORK ON WEIGHT LOSS. I have seen the detrimental effects of constantly being on a diet with my patients, and the mental health concerns that come from it. My job is to try to help you heal your relationship with food, your happiness shouldn't be tied to your scale- and I seriously believe that.
I can't wait to work with y'all and transform your health! It is never a straight line to health but it is always worth it.
