Naturopathic

Doctors

Naturopathic Doctors (ND) are trained experts in functional holistic medicine.

Each ND completes a 4-5 year graduate program from an accredited AANMC medical school. Education includes thousands of hours of coursework alongside primary care level clinical training in medical centers and community clinics. All ND's pass multi-step board exams prior to obtaining a license to practice.

 

Maine ND's perform intake, physical exams, order labs, diagnostic imaging, and formulate treatment plans suited to the needs of each individual within their scope of practice.

These therapies may range from lifestyle counseling, nutrition, herbs, vitamins+minerals, supplements, physical medicine, medications and in-office procedures such as injection therapies or minor surgery.

Having lived in Maine most of my life I look forward to possibility each day to support the communities that nourish me.

I love to go for walks in the woods, learn some cool new nature facts, and spend time with my family+friends. I'm always thinking of new ways that we can build brighter futures for ourselves and the ones we love.
