Dr. Sarah is dedicated to guiding you on your path to optimal health and wellness. She is passionate about integrating Western and Eastern Medicine. She holds a strong interest in Women’s Health and focuses on gently guiding people to live as healthily and happily as their potential. Her focus is on endocrine health (hormonal balance, fertility, menopause, PCOS, thyroid health, graceful aging and healthy menstrual cycles), though she emphasizes working with the whole complex and unique person. She loves working with women around fertility, throughout pregnancy and during the post natal period with both Acupuncture and Naturopathic Medicine. She is a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) a group of internationally recognized Acupuncturists, and other Integrative Doctors in the field. Another area of focus is Thyroid Health, including Hashimotos, Inflammatory Thyroiditis and Hypothyroid and Hyperthyroid imbalances. She is a certified WTS Doctor (AARM) and will work with you to optimize body temperature and thyroid function through nutrition, herbal medicine, acupuncture and various forms of thyroid hormone medication as needed. As well, she works with a wide array of digestive troubles, autoimmune processes, food and environmental sensitivities, insomnia, cardiovascular and metabolic disease, skin disturbances and emotional balance to optimize the health of the body, mind, spirit.
She values an integrative approach to health, through preventative medicine, mindfulness and individualized treatment. She believes it is her duty to spend adequate time with each patient and to listen, educate and tailor each visit according to your needs, encouraging you to take an active role in your health. She is happy to work with your other health care practitioners and specialists to provide you with the most well rounded, sustainable care. She believes strongly in the power of food as medicine, the healing potential of herbs and nutrients, and the importance of mindfulness, spirit and breath in health.
When she first moved to the Bay Area she founded Pacifica Naturopathic Medicine Clinic as Coastside’s first Naturopathic Doctor and has loved serving the Coastside and Bay Area community since. She has since expanded her practice and brought in a team of incredible practitioners at what evolved into Thyme Integrative Health.
Her clinical background includes extensive training in Women’s Health, Fertility, Thyroid Health and Pediatrics. She has also spent time doing some clinical work abroad in countries such as Bolivia where she trained in pediatric clinics and hospitals, and Kenya where she worked with patients and physicians in rural natural health and homeopathic clinics. Before her Naturopathic career Dr. Sarah taught spinning classes to a wide array of fitness levels from beginner to athlete. She believes that how we chose to nourish and move our bodies is integral to overall health. She is forever curious and passionate about expanding her learning, knowledge and experience in the processes behind healing and wellness.
She lives in Pacifica and is in love with the incredible natural beauty on the coast. Raising her kids with her amazing husband, playing in the sand and saltwater, and on countless coastside trails has been a dream come true. She is so grateful to be living and practicing in this wonderful community and looks forward to serving you on your path to live healthy happy.
