She believes that one cannot properly heal and thrive until the cause of illness has been identified and obstacles to cure have been addressed. Dr. Danielle enjoys creating individualized treatments blending liquid herbal tinctures and teas, prescribing compounded pharmaceutical medicines, selecting homeopathic remedies, and using principles of anthroposophic medicine that are specific to each patient.
Dr. Danielle earned her doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine from the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon. She graduated from NCNM with honors in research and a certificate of completion in homeopathy from the New England School of Homeopathy (NESH).
