I am glad you're here.
My journey to naturopathic medicine is a personal one, and likely the same is true for you. This approach to medicine is gentle and amazing and broad and has made such a difference in my family’s life.
When one of my daughters was a baby, she started having tummy issues. After visiting 5 different pediatricians, I was at my wit’s end. Some of the doctors were concerned, some were dismissive. One recommended a prescription-strength laxative – for my 12 month old. None were trained to help me find the cause of the issue and help fix it. I went into my “Mama Bear” response, where I ferociously advocate for my kids, I kept asking and fighting for answers. And then, I found naturopathic medicine. What a game changer!
After I attended medical school, I established this naturopathic medicine office in Surprise – in my own community – with the hope that it will be easier for you to find this medicine than it was for me nearly 18 years ago. If this search for a different, more healing approach to medicine has been frustrating for you, we understand. Every member of our team here understands!
I am a mom of 4, former high school teacher, hopeful amateur gardener, and avid book reader. And, of course, a passionate naturopathic doctor and cheerleader for our team here at Cascade Natural Medicine.
I am so glad you are here.
