Dr. Rice has a passion for providing health care to a range of conditions and populations. Dr. Rice was introduced to Naturopathic Medicine through friends who understood that her passion for healthcare was not just about singular components of health, but about the body as a whole, and how the body interprets its surrounding environment, as this creates the overall representation of our state of health.

Dr. Rice also focuses on Gastrointestinal care including SIBO, neurotransmitter balance and function, and autoimmune treatment including Hashimoto’s, Celiac, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, IBS, and Fibromyalgia.

Pediatric care includes vaccine support whether you are choosing to follow standard vaccination, customized vaccination schedule, or no vaccines at all, as well as standard well child checks. Dr. Rice is a trained midwife and therefore adores caring for children at any stage, as well as supporting fertility and beginning stages of pregnancy.
