Dr. Trolan specializes in holistic well-care for children as well as integrative care for children with complex chronic health concerns including autism, ADHD, asthma, autoimmune illness, eczema, failure to thrive, food allergies/sensitivities, reflux, inflammatory bowel disease and other gastrointestinal disorders, seizures and other neurological disorders, and environmental illness.

Dr. Trolan’s philosophy is that parenting is our most important job, to celebrate our children and help them become everything they are. To achieve health, keep it simple and focus on every day balance - a loving family and discipline, good water, nutrition (eating foods as close to how they come in nature) and exercise. She reminds her families that healing is the natural state of the world and to look for the blessings all around us. She wants to help children and families connect to their inner wisdom and honor Mother Earth.
