“ I became a physician after many years of working in the allopathic world as a registered nurse. I had seen the value and life-saving capacity in conventional medicine, but became frustrated with the band-aid-like approach of pharmaceuticals. Time and time again I would see the same person return to the hospital for a quick fix and then back to home again with prescriptions and without any real, deep change in their health. I longed for a more comprehensive, holistic approach to health care for my patients, so I went to naturopathic medical school so I could learn how to provide that care to them myself." The principles of naturopathic medicine are what differentiate naturopathic physicians from their allopathic counterparts and are the foundation of my practice. I believe in nature’s ability to heal. Simply walk outside and take a deep breath and you will feel a touch of this healing power for yourself. I believe in educating my patients so that they may feel empowered to take charge of their own health. I believe in a therapeutic ladder and in working with the body in the gentlest way possible to achieve a cure. “
Dr. Robens uses a combination of botanical medicine, counseling, and nutritional therapy guided by the European theory of bio-therapeutic drainage to support each person at different phases of the healing process. She is also trained and practiced in the utilization of T3 therapy for subclinical hypothyroidism.
In her free time, you will find Dr. Robens hiking, climbing, skiing, or spending time with her husband, William, and her children, Carol Anne and Blaze. Both children were born at home, naturally, with the loving support of her family and community midwives. She has personal experience with breastfeeding, cloth diapering, elimination communication (infant potty training), and attachment parenting and is happy to share her experiences and philosophy with those interested.
