our mission.

To transform the cookie cutter approach in “healthcare” into an individualized journey to regain the dynamic harmony of our lived experience through understanding our day-to-day choices and habits and their impact on our well-being.

our principles.

Heart Centered

First and foremost I believe that healing happens when we come to each situation with an open heart, in vulnerability in order to be able to see each person not as a “diagnosis”, but as a complex and complete being.

Tolle Totum /Tolle Causam (Treat the Cause/whole person) 

These are traditional naturopathic philosophies that is about finding/ identifying obstacles and being able to see the ripples of those obstacles in the entirety of a person’s experience. Without this perspective, any treatment becomes a “bandaid” treatment. 

Docere (To Teach)

This is a cornerstone of success in this practice. Teaching - or rather, sharing information to help someone understand how they got where they are today, and how to transform it, is crucial for deep, transformative healing. This medicine is not based on faith, but rather understanding and clarity. This principle puts us on “the same page” - which breaks the traditional role of the “doctor” as “the one who knows” to “the one who shares”.

Vis-Medicatrix Naturae

Last and First of our principles- is the understanding that our body is connected to our environment, to other beings, to our mind, and to our soul. When these are aligned, healing is unavoidable.

About Me

Natural Elements Medicine came about in 2011 after moving back from New Mexico, where I taught and gave practicing medicine my first try. 

Once established in the Albany community, I've had the opportunity to work with people in treating different diagnoses such gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, fibromyalgia, asthma, and hormone imbalances using botanical medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, hydrotherapy, physical medicine,  pharmacology and more recently Reiki and other energy medicine modalities. 

I've also been staff at La Clinica de Guadalupe in Salem since 2022.

2023 Gave way to new experiences with the opportunity to serve as a board member both for the OANP, and the OBNM, which has given me a broader view of the naturopathic profession as a whole. Since then, I've been more involved in the work of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within our profession  - which is a point of passion for me - not just in my profession, but in how we deliver service to our patients. 

When I'm not engaging in "doctor-y" activities, I enjoy being with my family, reading, drawing and engaging in different outdoor activities (depending on the weather and locale) and enjoying my relationships with the elements within, and without.
