Dr. Karleen started out her journey as an Anthropology major in California. She became very interested in medical anthropology and took a volunteer trip down to Ecuador. There she was able to see the people use many traditional medicines, some of which were extremely effective! This set her on the path of naturopathic medicine. She graduated from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and became a board certified naturopathic physician.
Combining the traditional with the contemporary to best help and treat her patients is her passion. By using a variety of lab testing options and listening to her patients, Dr. Karleen is able to treat the root cause of her patients’ symptoms.
She specializes in treating hormonal imbalances, thyroid conditions, adrenal dysfunction, fatigue, chronic pain, high blood pressure and cholesterol, trouble losing weight, intestinal discomfort, insomnia, anxiety, and depression. She strives to bring better health into her patients’ everyday life by individualizing each treatment based on their particular diagnosis and needs. Often using both conventional medicines with botanicals and nutrients to achieve optimal results.
When Dr. Karleen is not treating patients at her practice she teaches anatomy, physiology, and nutrition classes. She also enjoys educating the public and will often hold seminars on various health topics.
