What to Expect

“The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.” - Voltaire

Let’s make your visit comfortable, convenient, and empowering.


My philosophy

My goal is to get you feeling your best as quickly as possible by supporting your body’s natural healing capabilities.

For that reason I integrate naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, and craniosacral therapy or visceral manipulation into each visit.

Addressing your body, mind, and spirit together can create lasting change more quickly than focusing on only one aspect of you at a time. I hope to save you time, money, and be your one stop shop for most health related matters.

I practice vitalistic naturopathic medicine which means that I focus more on nutrition, lifestyle, counseling, hydrotherapy, and bodywork techniques and minimize supplements and out of pocket lab recommendations. As I’m an out of network provider and don’t bill insurance, I try to be conscious of any extra costs beyond your visit.

Here’s what a visit with me looks like:

  • 90 minute appointments for new patients so we have plenty of time to address your concerns and answer your questions
  • Options of 90 minute and 30 minute appointments for returning patients (speak with your doctor about which would be right for your care)
  • A personalized treatment plan that’s emailed to you so you can start shifting your health in a positive direction immediately
  • Multiple services in each visit – naturopathic medicine, acupuncture*, and craniosacral therapy or visceral manipulation
  • Nutrition, lifestyle, homeopathic, herbal, and counseling support when you need it
  • Lab or imaging review and/or placing orders for labs or imaging if your insurance is ok with out of network providers
  • A receipt or superbill provided at your request to submit to your insurance company for partial reimbursement (it depends on the plan and company how much is covered) 
  • Plenty of compassion, unconditional positive regard, and laughter

*Dr. Liz is trained in 2 types of acupuncture: TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which is more physically based and is helpful for pain and 5 element acupuncture which is more mentally and emotionally supportive for conditions like trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, grief, and more. They combine both types of acupuncture in each visit for a more comprehensive treatment. Read more about the differences and benefits of TCM and 5E here.

Here’s what I don’t do:

  • General physicals
  • Pelvic exams
  • Manage medications 
  • Prescribe hormones
  • Bill insurance – we are out of network providers
  • Pediatric visits for children under 14


If you need any of the services I don’t provide, I’m happy to refer you to other practitioners who do.

Please check out the rates page for more information about the cost of my services.

  • Dr. Liz has a unique ability to make a turnaround in your wellness with her touch. Recently, I went in to see her and I was a hot mess…I had an active 3 day migraine going, my body was beyond tense and my emotions were high…she was able to reverse all that in one session with acupuncture and gentle craniosacral manipulation- my migraine went away and every body ache and pain too, it was the best I’ve felt in years.

    She is a good listener and can lead you on the right path to better health. I was suffering from acid reflux for some time and she recommended bitters (which she had available at her office) and it has really improved my reflux symptoms. The bitters will also take me out of active acid reflux when I’m experiencing heartburn. Dr. Liz should really be part of your health team! I’m really happy I found her, thank you Dr. Liz!
