No one understands your body better than you. It’s my job to use the information you give me to develop a customized plan to help you feel your best.
Hey there! I’m Dr. Nicole
I completed my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology where I got to combine my love of science with my other passion of athletics and physical activity. Medical school seemed like the next logical step but when it came time to apply, something didn’t feel quite right. I realized I was entering into a profession I didn’t completely believe could help people the way I wanted to. I wanted to truly make an impact on people’s health and help them reach their potential long term, and I didn’t feel like the traditional healthcare model really supported that.
I did a lot of searching and then I had my lightbulb moment! I had been a patient of naturopathic medicine my whole life. It started with breathing issues when I was a toddler, then continued with recovery after surgery as a child and then again with migraine treatment as a teenager. I had always combined natural therapies with conventional ones whenever possible and a career as a naturopathic doctor would allow me to this for my patients too!
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I get to combine modern science with natural therapies to create safe, effective, individualized treatment plans for my patients. I look at how all your symptoms work together instead of targeting them in isolation and I provide treatment that works for your lifestyle and budget. I also encourage my patients to take charge of their health and become actively engaged in the process. It is my job to get to the root cause of your condition and educate you so you can make informed decisions about your health. I believe in collaborative care as well and whenever possible, I work with your other healthcare providers to ensure you receive the best care.
Your treatment plan needs to be as unique as you are. I don’t believe in cookie-cutter protocols based on the conditions you’ve been diagnosed with. I’ve learned that people don’t always fit into the boxes we create for them and while those boxes might make your doctor feel better, it doesn’t help you. I also don’t believe in all the fluff that lots of other alternative healthcare providers recommend – the crazy expensive lab tests, the complicated supplement protocols, the restrictive diets that aren’t sustainable long term. I have access to these things and use them sometimes, but I believe less is more when we’re able to truly figure out what your body needs and provide exactly that. I recommend what’s necessary and nothing more – who needs more on their plate these days, right??

Outside The Clinic
When I’m not at the clinic, you can usually find me hanging out with my family and doing all the mom things with my daughter Brooke, carving out time for exercise (one of the things that keeps me sane) or watching TV with my husband, Garrett (we are totally obsessed with Food Network competition shows).
5 fun facts about me
1. I hate when food touches. Seriously, if I could use the toddler plates that separate different food items from each other I absolutely would.
2. I have a rescue dog from Mexico. Her name is Nia and she loves sunbathing, cuddles on the couch and any food she can get her paws on.
3. My guilty pleasure is reality TV. The more ridiculous the better!
4. I am very Type A and one of my superpowers is being insanely organized. I am obsessed with lists and I get excited about organziational planners and fun notebooks – yeah, I’m that person.
5. I love comfy clothes. Sweatpants and hoodies are my jam!
