Meet Dr. Lisa

I became interested in seeking and distributing natural, complementary, and alternative medicine when my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I knew there was something else out there that could benefit his health and well-being, but wasn’t sure where or how to begin. Shortly thereafter, I left Wisconsin and embarked on a five-year doctoral program at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM, formerly National College of Natural Medicine, NCNM) where I obtained not only a Naturopathic Doctorate (ND) but also a Master’s of Science (MS) in Integrative Medicine Research. At the Helfgott Research Institute, I designed a clinical trial related to herbal medicine and cancer. After graduating, I became a certified Reiki 2 Practitioner in order to offer patients a hands-on treatment. As a Vibrational Sound Intern working towards certification, I now offer tuning fork treatment as well. I strongly believe that cancer not only affects mind, body, spirit, but can be affected by mind, body, spirit and therefore I emphasize a truly wholistic approach. My learning is far from over, healthcare is a rapidly evolving field and knowledge both folk, spiritual and evidence-based will be what I continue to strive for.

On a personal level, I like to balance my work life out with play. I can be found spending time celebrating life with friends, on rejuvenating walks in the woods with my partner, practicing yoga or relaxing at home with a book and a creature.  I love live music, magick and unicorns, vampire movies, crafting and creating and am currently learning more energetic medicine techniques to be offered soon!

I consider myself a spiritual person and so this theme runs through all aspects of my being and life including New Moon Cancer Care. I highly value and respect individual autonomy, expression and self-actualization. Our team approach to your healing will vary accordingly.  Evidence-based medicine has an integral place in treatment but, for those interested, I also offer metaphysical, ethereal and ritual healing.
