I am a Naturopathic Doctor with a clinical focus in thyroid conditions, and Hashimoto’s Disease. I help frustrated and fatigued women finally feel like themselves again, so they can get back to what truly matters.
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 courses, research, and clinical trials 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. Many years later, 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.
When we start to work together we will do a thorough intake that covers your concerns in addition to any important health history, blood work, and physical exams. We may also start with some basic recommendations at this time. 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, and most often the problem is not with the thyroid gland itself. 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!
