I offer appointments for both pediatric (0-18 years) and adult patients. The initial consultation is typically 75 minutes in length for adult patients, and 60 minutes for pediatric patients. Follow-up appointments are offered between 30-60 minutes in length depending on the patient's needs. I also offer CranioSacral Therapy (CST) for returning patients. I also offers consultations over the phone/internet anywhere in the world. Prior to your initial virtual appointment, I will need a 5 – 15 minute complimentary intro call.
I received my medical degree from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, in 2000. To complement my extensive naturopathic medicine education, I have received further training in homeopathy, environmental medicine, and craniosacral therapy. In addition to the extended homeopathic training at the National College of Natural Medicine, I have studied with internationally acclaimed homeopaths. I have also completed Dr. Walter Crinnion’s Environmental Medicine Program at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. To round out my education and better serve my patients achieve their health goals, I received a masters degree in spiritual psychology at the University of Santa Monica.
15-minute FREE appointments
Did you know that I provide free 15-minute appointments in person or over-the-phone? These are quick appointments for potential patients that want to know more about my practice and approach. This is a great opportunity for me to answer your questions and help you decide if you're ready to schedule an initial appointment.
How you can use your appointments:
Whether your insurance company will cover any or all of your visits with me largely depends on the type of coverage you have. You may want to contact your insurance company to find out what your policy covers. When you call your insurance company, please be sure to let them know I am a licensed primary care naturopathic physician. Many patients do get at least partial reimbursement for their visits and laboratory tests are often covered by insurance.
While we do not bill insurance directly through the office, we are happy to provide you with a service summary that has all the codes and license information the insurance companies need. Once you send in the service summary to the insurance company, they will reimburse you directly for whatever your policy covers.
