Hi there, I’m Katie and I’m Your Thyroid ND.
My mission is to break the mold of traditional thyroid care that leaves so many hypothyroid sufferers feeling forgotten and fatigued. I use my signature framework and a practical down to earth approach to help my patients feel like themselves again.
WHY THYROID HEALTH?
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with a thyroid condition in their lifetime. A year into my practice I discovered that I was one of those women, and was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease. Along with many of my patients, I understand the vital role the thyroid plays and what can happen when it’s not optimal. Since then I have invested much of my time into educational courses and research to learn everything I could about the treatment of thyroid disorders beyond “just take this medication”.
I can’t count the number of women who come into my office with a similar story. It goes something like this: they were diagnosed with a thyroid disorder, told it was an easy fix, given medication, and went on their way. Years later, many of these women continue to struggle with symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, chronic pain, digestive issues, low mood, and more. They’re told their thyroid levels are “normal” and to simply exercise and eat better, or offered other medications like antidepressants.
If this sounds familiar to you, let’s talk.
If you’re feeling frustrated, ignored, and looking for answers, you’re not alone!
THE GAME PLAN
It all starts with our first visit. We will do a thorough intake that covers your concerns in addition to any important health history and a brief physical exam. A complete thyroid and nutrient assessment may also be recommended. In 1-2 weeks we will meet again to go over findings and put a plan in place that works for you.
The thyroid is a complex hormonal organ. As a Naturopathic Doctor, my job is to get to the root of your concerns and provide you with a comprehensive plan to address your whole self.
In addition to thyroid conditions, I also enjoy working with many other health concerns including other hormone imbalances, bio-identical hormones, and general women’s health. If you are looking for a deeper understanding to your health and are willing to take part in the process, I would love to meet you!
