ND [Visit Danielle's Services]
Danielle is a holistic family medicine doctor with a passion for health and natural remedies. As a native of Sonoma, Danielle is thrilled to have recently returned to Sonoma County to nurture the community that helped raise her. After having a successful naturopathic medical practice in San Diego, she has relocated to Sonoma to be closer to her loved ones and to live a harmonious lifestyle.
Following high school graduation in Sonoma, Danielle attended San Diego State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Her intention was to follow the family tradition of optometry, while her heart was full of appreciation for nutrition and natural therapies. During her time at San Diego State, Danielle encountered the extraordinary field of naturopathic medicine. Working in the nutrition department at a local health food store further exposed Danielle to the wellspring of health benefits in the naturopathic field.
Danielle earned her doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine from the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon. After 4 years in Portland, she graduated from NCNM with honors in research and a certificate of completion in homeopathy from the New England School of Homeopathy (NESH). While attending NCNM, Danielle completed a 9 month clinical rotation in Women’s Health, a 9 month rotation in pediatrics, and 6 month rotations in chronic care, gastroenterology, and anthroposophical medicine.
Combining the best of science and nature, Danielle strives to find the root cause of illness and to maintain a balance between evidence-based medicine and eclectic herbal wisdom. She believes that one cannot properly heal and thrive until the cause of illness has been identified and obstacles to cure have been addressed. Danielle enjoys creating individualized treatments, blending liquid herbal tinctures and teas, prescribing compounded pharmaceutical medicines, selecting homeopathic remedies, and using principles of anthroposophical medicine that are specific to each patient. Her holistic treatments not only address physical complaints, but support mental and emotional disharmony as well.
Danielle is dedicated to helping others reach their optimal level of wellness through natural medicine and living a harmonious lifestyle.
