"For more than a decade, Dr. Hazel has served as my primary care physician. In addition to an incredible intellect and ability to problem solve, she is the first doctor who has treated me as an entire person - mind, body and soul. She asks the right questions and tough questions and practices both the art and science of medicine. With a fabulous sense of humor, deep level of care, and incredible knowledge-base, I am forever grateful to have her as my doctor. She is one of a handful of people on the planet who truly understands me and wants to see me thrive in all aspects of my life! She is a true class act, both as a person and a medical doctor." -- Katie Erickson
I am a licensed naturopathic physician with nearly three decades of family practice specializing in natural and functional medicine. Nature heals. Working intelligently with Nature to assist self-healing is the role of a naturopathic doctor, yoga and qi gong instructor. My broad and deep experience in how to help you transform your health allows me to get to the heart of what needs to be known and what needs to be done.
We start we you. We look for all the pieces of your story and your symptoms and your goals in order to find the keys to unlock your healing potential.
My mission is to have each one of us actualize the power and potential we were born with. If we can unlock that power we will benefit more than just ourselves. We can become a force of balance and change and grace on the planet.
Through private practices, formal classroom teaching, teaching in medical centers, seminars and talks I have taught and treated thousands of students and patients over two decades in natural medicine.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Eastern Connecticut State University and a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from The National College of Naturopathic Medicine.
