Philosophy:

Dr. Karen Bender began her career as a nurse. She then received her doctoral degree in naturopathic medicine so she could more fully practice the naturopathic approach of focusing on disease prevention and treating the whole person, mind, body, and spirit.  Dr. Bender integrates and balances her knowledge and experience with conventional and naturopathic medicines to find the least invasive, effective therapeutic intervention.   She believes in finding the root cause of illness so that the body can be supported in healing itself. Using tools such as biofeedback and mindfulness practices, Dr. Bender guides you to discover your own inner wisdom and self-compassion to assist you in this process. She is eager to listen to your unique story and facilitate your wellness journey!
