My firm belief in the healing power of nature led me to pursue a career in the natural health sciences. Integrating my training as both a Naturopathic doctor and Acupuncturist allows me to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions using safe, evidence-informed natural therapies. As a clinician I have specialized knowledge and additional training in pain management and reproductive health (fertility, menstrual disorders, hormonal disorders). Additionally, I manage an array of health conditions including chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. With proper care and  guidance, these concerns can be addressed utilizing natural therapies such as botanical medicine (herbs both Western and Chinese), nutrition and supplementation. My clinical approach incorporates psychological and emotional health and forming a partnership with my patients. I look forward to working with you on your journey toward optimal health. You have the option of an office visit at my clinic space in Rockville, MD or a home-based visit via my mobile medical services.
