Natural Health and Wellness for the Whole Family

Our Practitioners

Dr. Katarina Meister, ND

As a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), my goal is to help guide you on what your health and body are truly capable of, by restoring your natural ability to heal yourself. The goal is to get you to a place where you can find a newfound sense of wellbeing; improve resiliency to physical and emotional stress; and feel strong, confident, and energized in your own body. My passion is to start you on a path toward healing and to also provide you with the tools and education so that you can be your own health advocate. I manage each patient with an individualized, evidenced-based, and holistic approach that may include lifestyle changes, functional lab analyses, botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, and nutritional therapies.

My clinical practice focuses on chronic conditions such as chronic fatigue, autoimmune disorders, hormone imbalances, hypothyroidism, and gastrointestinal conditions.

Dr. Mackenzie Prentice, DNP, APNP

As a Functional Medicine Nurse Practitioner (DNP), I’ve had the opportunity to work and train in both the conventional medicine setting and also in integrative medicine. Although my passion is in integrative medicine, my experience in the conventional medicine world has given me a unique skill set to use an all-inclusive approach to identify the root cause of your chronic condition or symptoms. Once imbalances are identified, we can work together to develop a personalized plan with evidence-based tools and resources. My purpose is to assist you in becoming confident in having agency over your own health. Once your health is back at baseline, I am certain we can work together to move past that baseline threshold to optimize your health and overall quality of life. This process of health optimization is a lifelong journey, and one that can truly change your life in the best way. I am honored to be a part of your wellness journey.

Dr. Joanne Aponte, ND

As a naturopathic doctor, I provide natural health and wellness consultations for the whole family. I take a holistic approach to wellness using a variety of tools such as clinical nutrition, herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, wellness counseling, homeopathy and functional laboratory evaluation. With commitment to investigating and addressing the underlying causes of health issues, I will dig deeper and go beyond simply addressing your symptoms to help you achieve a higher level of health.

Dr. Sarah Axtell, ND

As a naturopathic doctor, I help people who are facing many different chronic health conditions, such as hormonal imbalances, thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, and weight loss resistance. I believe strongly in addressing you as an individual, not just your symptoms. I specialize in addressing the root cause of illness by utilizing effective, natural approaches including nutrition, botanical remedies, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, detoxification, and biotherapeutic drainage. My passion is food as medicine.
