Carla is a Naturopathic Doctor that joined our team because she believes integrative care is the key to wellness. Growing up, Carla was constantly reminded that the greatest wealth is health. Through her years of education and clinical experience, she witnessed firsthand that nutrition is a huge component of health. She believes in Hippocrates’ wise words that food should be your medicine and medicine should be your food. Food choices either bring you closer to health or closer to disease. As a result, her passion is serving as a mentor in each person’s unique journey to their best health.
She is a Certified Nutrition Specialist, trained in nutrition, lifestyle counseling, biochemical individuality, mind-body wellness, botanical medicine, genomics, and stress management. In addition to her Naturopathic Degree, Carla has an extensive educational background including a Master of Science in Physiology & Complementary and Alternative Medicine from Georgetown University and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Saint Joseph. In her spare time, she loves painting, yoga, running, trying new recipes, and staying up to date with research. Carla has been fully trained by Teri on The Cochrane Method, deepening her knowledge of the way we look at the body in health and disease.
