I am a naturopathic doctor passionate about helping my patients achieve wellness by addressing the root cause of their imbalance and blending modern, scientific knowledge with natural forms of medicine.
It is important to me that my patients feel heard and understood and this informs every aspect of their treatment. I have maintained a general family practice and have special interests in women’s health (from PMS to menopause), digestive disorders (from IBS, SIBO to Crohn's), skin disease, and mental/emotional health.
I use evidence-based therapies to help you start feeling your best, including: nutrition, counselling, supplements, acupuncture, herbal medicine, bio-identical hormone therapy, and intravenous medicine.
I have learned through my own health experience, and am continuing to learn through my patient's experiences, that we all have a deep desire to heal and that with commitment and the right support, we can achieve our goals, feel empowered and have lifelong wellness.
My goal and commitment as a Naturopathic Doctor is to support and empower my patients in finding their own unique path to healing.
When I’m not at the clinic, I teach preventative nutrition, and anatomy and physiology to holistic nutrition students at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Toronto. I can also be found enjoying time with my husband, in a yoga class, discovering new trail runs, or relaxing with a book on the beach.
Education and Training
I completed four years of Naturopathic Medical school at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC, and clinical internships at the Boucher Naturopathic Clinic, the Family Naturopathic Clinic and Positive Living BC. Prior to this I obtained my Bachelor of Science with Honours with a Specialist in Neuroscience from the University of Toronto. I have been granted a prescribing license and have completed advanced training in Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy, IV therapy as well as Craniosacral therapy.
I am a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors and am currently registered with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario.
