Founder & Naturopathic Doctor & Licensed Acupuncturist


Dear Future Patient,

Thank you for visiting! With over 12 years of clinical experience, I am honored to serve patients at my own private practice, Collective Health Center. By integrating both Naturopathic and classical East Asian Medicine and acupuncture I strive for excellence in providing the best care possible to each patient. Acting as a partner on the path to optimal health while honoring the basic principles of natural medicine. I take time to listen to the whole story, answer questions and educate. I strive to uncover the underlying causes of imbalance and offer a safe and effective individualized wellness plan. As a medically-trained naturopathic doctor I speak the language of both conventional, integrative, and holistic medicine and after many years of working in a primary care setting, enjoy building bridges with patient's medical team. 

I know that I am on track when I hear patients say: “Thank you for helping me, because my health is improving, my relationship is improving, my family dynamic is improving, and I can engage in my life”. To me, this is what it is all about and the journey I am honored to be a part of with my patients.

My focus with patients is truly on personalized health. My goal, one patient at a time, is our community or collective health. I welcome the opportunity to be a partner with you on your journey!

In Good Health,

Dr. Sarah
