I am a naturopathic physician and anti-aging and regenerative medicine enthusiast specializing in anti-aging and regenerative medicine with bioidentical hormone replacement therapies as the foundation of my approach.
My naturopathic medical training at National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, where I earned my doctorate in naturopathic medicine made me proficient at the integration of evidence-based conventional and non-conventional or so-called functional medicine modalities.
After graduating from naturopathic medical school I worked for a few years integrating naturopathic medicine with conventional medicine the best that I could while working with mostly older and medicaid and medicare patients while working as a primary care physician in Portland, Oregon. I witnessed the suffering of so many men and women from chronic age-related diseases as a result of hormone imbalance and deficiency. I saw that no amount of medical treatment would really help these patients unless their hormone imbalance and deficiency was seriously addressed. I really wanted to help but I felt like my hands were tied. I became more and more passionate about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy during this time, and as I learned more, I became passionate about the whole emerging field of evidence-based anti-aging and regenerative medicine.
I decided that enough was enough. I decided I wanted to join the pioneers here at Full Potential HRT Clinic. I’m truly grateful to have been able to become a part of this team. While here I’ve been able to master my craft. In particular I’ve mastered the modality of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with 100% natural and bioidentical hormone pellets. I’ve performed more of these now than most other physicians or practitioners in the Portland metro area.
When I’m not working here, you might find me camping, traveling, exploring local Oregon treasures, checking out the Portland food scene, and spending time with my two beloved canine children.
