Mood disorders such as depression, anxiety and mood swings
Recovery from sprains, strains and injuries

A Cash-Based Practice
My practice is based on a pay as you go principle. As a seasoned practitioner, I am able to keep my overhead and rates reasonable by keeping my business practice streamlined. This is a model that best reflects the true nature of the relationship I maintain with my valued clientele - simple and direct. I provide healing services. I will answer your calls (sometimes even pick up the phone when you call) and formulate and dispense custom formulas. This system, pay as you go, allows me to focus on what I do best, be available for visits as soon as possible, to study for you, be there for the brief phone check-ins we schedule and to consult with my colleagues.
You may download my insurance questionnaire that prompts you through the important questions to ask your insurance carrier. If your insurance covers an out-of-network naturopathic office visit or acupuncture visits, I am happy to educate you on how to efficiently bill and receive reimbursement from your provider. In the US currently, we have a dynamically changing, some would say chaotic health delivery system. It is important that each of us knows the facts of our health insurance policy and is aware of how the insurance provider is delivering.
