Careful listening and compassionate care are the hallmarks of Dr. Dominika’s practice. She is committed to helping her
patients obtain their health goals and experience life without limitations. Always seeking to address the underlying
cause of illness rather than suppressing symptoms, Dr. Dominika is dedicated to educating, empowering and accompanying
patients on their journey towards optimal health. She enjoys collaborating with patients to create treatment plans that
are simple and effective. Her philosophy is to “use the least force necessary” and she loves to laugh, finding humor to
be one of the best medicines.

detoxification. She practices naturopathic family medicine and welcomes everyone, regardless of age or medical
condition. Dr. Dominika is happy to work with children, but prefers not to be their primary care doctor as she has no
children from her own (aside from pretty awesome older step-kids and wonderful niece) and has not pursued specialized
pediatric training. She has, however, received training in craniosacral and Scenar therapies.
Dr. Dominika lives in Monroe with her husband and love of her life, Dr. Dean. She enjoys outdoor activities such as
camping, hiking, backpacking and learning to fish. Curling up with a good book and delicious coffee is her ultimate
favorite past time. She’s fluent in Polish and spent the first 7 years of her life in Poland, landing in the United
States after a 2-year stint in Italy. She has a passion for travel and little by little plans to explore the world.
