About Resilience Naturopathic

Resilience Naturopathic was originally founded with a mission to not only to provide an alternative to those who struggle with mental health conditions, but to improve the way mental and behavioral healthcare is delivered in America. Our founder, Dr. Jennifer Bahr, ND, was always specifically drawn to help children because of her own experiences as a child and because she knew that if she could help kids like her, they would be spared years of struggle and heartache. It quickly became very clear that the greatest need was with the PANS/PANDAS community, so Dr. Bahr decided to exclusively focus on helping these families. She then set out to find the best naturopathic doctors and support staff to join her on her mission. Everyone in our office, from our expert team of naturopathic doctors to our staff, has a personal mission to change the world for the better. We firmly believe that the best way to change the world is through helping others be their very best, so that they can use their talents to improve the world as well. Our highest calling is to help you to heal using safe, effective natural therapies, so that you too can accomplish your highest calling in life.

Dr. Jennifer Bahr, ND

Founder and CMO

“There are several moments in my life that you could say that my life’s calling was initiated. It could be in the excitement I felt about summer workshops at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI for short) in Columbus, OH. It could have been in the time I spent in the military, doing work that I knew was important…

Dr. Amber Petersons, ND

“As a child I had a passion for two things, clowns and medicine. My childhood quickly tilted the scale toward medicine as I watched chronic disease and mental illness take hold of my family. For years, I accompanied them in and out of doctors’ offices and hospitals, knowing in my heart that there had to be more to healing…

Dr. Amy Cahoy, ND

During many years as a Registered Nurse, I witnessed countless situations of medical decision making and had the privilege of supporting families while providing medical care. I saw the work in the hospital as critical and often life-saving, but given the complexity of health and vitality, I knew there was a history which proceeded a child’s hospitalization…

““I trace my interest in health and healing to when I watched my dad die of colon cancer when I was 15. I knew there had to be a better approach to health and disease. This first led me to a strong interest in food and nutrition…

Dr. Duncah Heard, ND

Almost any naturopathic doctor, when asked, would say that they felt called to the profession and I think that sums up my feelings.

Kyle Gunderman

I came to the Resilience Naturopathic team with one goal in mind, give our clients the best experience possible. As the Chief Operations Officer, I enable everyone on the Resilience Naturopathic team to focus on one thing, care. I strive to make sure all systems function smoothly, making it as easy for you as possible to get the care that you or your family members need. I brought with me a depth of knowledge in organizational leadership and a keen desire to bring naturopathic medicine to everyone.

Jody Putnicki

I’ve proudly partnered with Resilience Naturopathic with a deep rooted passion for supporting families as they navigate the treacherous waters of PANS and PANDAS. I am a momma bear that has been through the nightmare of losing my child to this awful condition so I fully understand where you are right now. I was blessed to have taken my child through the recovery process with Resilience Naturopathic and now have my happy, healthy little girl back. I feel as though a strong calling has been placed on my life to stay with the families that are still in the trenches by sharing my families life changing experiences of healing with homeopathy. I know that there’s hope for our children and I want to help you learn how your child can get out of the cycle of symptoms. My goal is to support your family through the healing process and to advocate for our children through education on the healing power of homeopathy. I am here for you because I know you don’t have to be in this place forever. There is hope and healing for your child! 

Erin Duarte 

What I love most about working at Resilience Naturopathic is the opportunity to support and connect with patients and their families. I worked as a site manager at a high school here in San Diego for many years before coming to Resilience Naturopathic and the hardest aspect of that position was seeing firsthand the struggles families go through when children struggle with health challenges. During my time at the high school I developed a close relationship with one family in particular, whose healing journey began with RNP.

Today I am so excited and proud to be a part of this team. I look forward to greeting everyone with empathy and encouragement.

Kristi Kim

As a former elementary and special education teacher, I’ve always loved the complexities of teaching and helping children to learn and thrive in the classroom.   

Today, education is still a passion; albeit, I educate parents on the healing power of homeopathy and advocate for PANS/PANDAS kids. My family is proof homeopathy can treat complex cases. It brings me tremendous joy to share my family’s healing journey and recovery from PANS and Lyme while treating with Resilience Naturopathic using homeopathy.

Julia Rodriguez

 When I first started at Resilience Naturopathic I was only just figuring out my own path. All I knew was that I wanted to be a part of a movement and an organization that sought to heal others through homeopathy. Resilience Naturopathic was the perfect place to start and has since led me to discover what I truly want to pursue. Not only has it taught me immensely about homeopathy, it has also given me the amazing opportunity to help kiddos and their families with PANS and PANDAS. I am honored and grateful to be part of the amazing Resilience Naturopathic team. The client guides, doctors, and admin who are all passionate about helping individuals across the globe fuel my passion to continue to learn and grow in the field of homeopathy. 

Patricia Kilburn

Jessica Osterloh

When Resilience Naturopathic shared they were looking for a new client care guide, my heart skipped a beat and jumped with joy because I knew I had found my calling and the place I’m meant to be. My professional past includes client care, office management, IT support, social media management, and most recently a stay at home mom with my PANS son. Even though my son only recently started treatment with Resilience Naturopathic, we have already seen the amazing ability homeopathy has to heal PANS/PANDAS. It has given me a child I’ve never known and opened up a much brighter future. I am honored to be a part of this team and very excited to help you and your child on your own personal PANS/PANDAS healing journey.

I look forward to partnering with you on your journey towards healing for your child.


Phoebe is Dr. Bahr’s “dogter,” office greeter, and nerve calmer for anxious kids. She loves to be the center of attention and has a seemingly endless supply of kisses and puppy love, but will happily lay on her bed when people need calmer energy. Patients have called her a healer, so we consider ourselves very lucky that she found her way into our lives.
Phoebe joins Dr. Bahr at the office most days and is always happy to make new friends. For those who are not comfortable with dogs, just let us know and we will make sure she is nice and happy in Kyle’s office. For those of you who give in to her cuteness and want her around she will be happy to join you for your visit.


What Patients are Saying


Dr. Bahr is an amazing individual and a great doctor. Her knowledge is built on a foundation of genuine warmth and care for others. Her ability to support those in their healing process, physically, mentally, and emotionally, is hard to find in the medical community. As a patient, I felt like she connected with me heart to heart, she displayed her compassion both in character and poise, and she asked the questions other doctors had dismissed in order to find the reason why I was feeling the way I was. Her intuition is impeccable. I felt like she continually sought to understand me as a whole person and to formulate a treatment that was unique for me. She also explained what was happening within my body and how the treatment she was implementing would help address the cause for the imbalance I was experiencing.
