My specialties are fertility/infertility care, LGTBQ* care including gender-affirming hormone treatments, mood disorders, and lactation; and, as a Naturopathic Physician, I provide safe, research-based integrative care for pregnancy and gynecology including nutrition, supplements, and herbs in addition to medications.
