A New York City native, I am no stranger to mixing cultures and stepping outside of the box to create something unique that yields incredible results. My training as a naturopathic physician allows me to combine modern science with traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Mayan healing to allow my patients to reach optimal health and happiness for themselves and their families. Growing up, I developed a profound love for science, nature, nutrition, and the human body. I was fascinated by different foods and the use of food as medicine.
I later developed a love for botanical medicine through my grandmother, who would teach me the medicinal uses for the herbs in her garden in Brazil. I began to explore the uses of these and other plants in the United States, which led me to discover my passion for naturopathic medicine and women’s health. When not practicing medicine, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, camping, traveling, and finding the best restaurants in the Phoenix area.
