I have always been driven to help those around me. When people we care about are not well, a sense of helplessness can arise. I knew I wanted a career that would enable me to help others in the best possible way. I spent time exploring all my options and discovering Naturopathic Medicine was this powerful “Aha!” moment. I have never looked back. A system of medicine that treats individuals as a whole, aims to uncover the root cause of symptoms, supports the body’s innate ability to heal, as well as the emphasis on preventative care – I thought “YES this is it!”. This is the direction I believe our healthcare needs to shift, and I want to be a part of it.
My goal is to instill a sense of empowerment, by arming you with important information about what is going on in your body. We will dig deep into your concerns – exploring why you might be experiencing certain symptoms, how they may relate to one another or be affecting other aspects of your health, and discuss a variety of treatment options We’ll work together, to help you regain a sense of control over your health so you can start taking action to feel your best and continue achieving all that you want in life.
I have a general practice and enjoy working with individuals of all different ages and backgrounds. A few areas of clinical interest include women’s health concerns (ie PMS, menopause, fertility, PCOS), digestive health, skin health, sustainable weight management, supportive cancer care, as well as stress and anxiety management.
