“Working with Lisa was the best thing I ever did for myself. For almost 10 years, her guidance, knowledge and ability to encourage and motivate me has changed my life.”

I became a doctor because I know what it’s like to live in a body that is not OK. I lost my teens and twenties to Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Depression, and the gamut of disordered eating.

I operate from the perspective that the body knows what it’s doing. Always.  Whatever it’s doing — from chronic fatigue, to stubborn fat, to pain, to binge eating, to autoimmune conditions, to depression — is often the very thing that’s trying to keep you alive right now. My job is to put the pieces together to help your body find a more elegant solution.

The answer {to even the most serious situations} may be as simple as uncovering specific nutrient deficiencies or food incompatibilities, or as comprehensive as learning how to fine-tune your nutrition, supplement support and lifestyle to allow your genetics to shine.

As a naturopathic medical doctor, I believe in choosing the most effective + least invasive treatment options, first — while saving pharmaceuticals and surgery for last {and hopefully never}.

My favorite moments are when a patient discovers that they aren’t a medical label … and they don’t have to settle for a life of pain, struggle or disease management.

Ultimately, health is a resource that we can tap into to get on with the really important things in life. I love that I get to use both my personal experience and my 13 years as a doctor to show women how to resolve their health struggles to allow them to live a meaningful life that matters.
