I have a strong commitment to my patients and to the community; which is why I usually develop meaningful relationships with my patients. I tend to see patients with complex symptoms; these are often related, forming a pattern. It is by evaluating those patterns that we find what are the factors affecting your health. My role is to support you in your efforts, ordering lab work as needed, providing information and resources. Together we'll develop your treatment or health plan. We will then regularly adjust the plan as your health evolves from treating immediate concerns to optimizing wellbeing and transitions through life."
I grew-up in Caracas, where I earned a Baccalaureat in natural sciences through the French educational system (my parents are expatriates). I completed my education in the US and embarked on a successful international career.
Nevertheless, my passion for natural healing and community involvement led me back "home" to join the Community Doula Program in Houston, Texas. By implementing a natural approach to perinatal health we were able to reverse practically all cases of gestational diabetes and toxemia usually within a couple of weeks. The results were so impressive that the program was requested by several schools, public agencies and two HMOs, leading to a strategic merger. During that time I had the privilege and fun of serving on a number of technical advisory committees and healthcare coalitions with a wonderful community of partners. I then decided to pursue further studies in medicine, graduating from the National University of Natural Medicine.
At NW Naturopathic Medicine we provide interdisciplinary care with a focus on behavioral health and biochemical disorders, allergy/intolerance reactions, cardiovascular risk assessment, hormone balancing and gastrointestinal health. Services include acupuncture, microcurrent, nutrition, massage therapy, and soon LENS neurofeedback and the Buteyko breathing method, along with herbalism and homeopathy.
I often work in multidisciplinary teams that include psychiatrists, nutritionists, gastroenterologists, neurologists or other specialties.
