Under the Surface
I conceived of Euvis (pronounced "you-VEESE") while steeped in the latin terminology of my first year of med school. The prefix "eu" means good or well. The word "vis" refers to the power or spirit that animates us, our life force.
Euvis is a clinic committed to the deep work of lasting change,
to teaching people how to be stewards of their own health,
and celebrating the ability of the body to heal itself when it has a good partner (you!).
During childhood summers in New Hampshire, Nana used garlic oil for swimmer's ear, sliced up aloe leaves for sunburns, and had little brown bottles of tinctures in her pantry for tummy aches and trouble sleeping.
Twenty years later, I discovered an entire branch of medicine that honored her natural approach to healing, and married it with the lessons of modern science. I began med school at Bastyr University to earn my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine.
As you can imagine, med school wrecked my sleep (having a baby during those years didn't help!), but my first course in sleep medicine empowered me to reclaim this element of health I so desperately needed. When I experienced for myself how good sleep improved my physical and mental health, I knew this was the niche for me.

A New Chapter
Primary care required a Jane-of-all-trades who spent her days putting out fires. I wasn't getting to people early enough to prevent fires. In 2020, I left primary care behind and dove into treating sleep problems with the preventative lifestyle medicine that was always at the heart of my practice -- sustainable habit changes and natural therapies that make wellness easy and lasting.
Every health problem is made worse by poor sleep,
and is improved with good sleep.
This became my way of doing primary care.
