I believe in the innate healing power of the body. Through education, healthful choices and cultivation of a positive inner disposition, we can enhance our healing abilities. My practice includes a combination of herbal, nutritional and conventional medical treatments in a comfortable, confidential and compassionate setting.
Dr. Sierra fosters a safe, trusting relationship with each person. The long-term nature of these relationships allows for the greatest health improvements and maintains well-being through all life stages. Dr. Sierra's focus is to use diet, herbs, supplements, natural bio-identical hormones, counseling, mindfulness, education, movement, "hands on" physical medicine, massage and lifestyle strategies in order to achieve optimal health. She prescribes pharmaceutical medication when needed, but always with the lightest of touch and with the fullest integration of natural healing approaches.
Dr. Sierra starts by acknowledging the patient’s own understanding of their condition through detailed history-taking, physical exam and objective lab results. Each person will have a completely different and individualized approach developed for them which will always embrace the patient’s own ideas, interests, intuition, budget, conditions and capabilities.
