Focusing on total wellness and health promotion, I primarily use three methods to support you as you move towards achieving true balance in all aspects of your life:
- Botanical medicine
- Chinese medicine & acupuncture
We begin by addressing root cause, and by optimizing digestion and absorption. We work to balance stress, sleep, and the fostering of a sustainable healthy lifestyle. My practice philosophy is one of supported independence: In any individual treatment plan, my goal is to help someone re-discover the tangible, practical, ways to regain balance in their lives with the minimum amount of intervention.
I maintain a Naturopathic Family Medicine practice at the Herbal Clinic and Dispensary in Roncesvalles Village. Although I primarily see adults in my practice, I spent a year of my clinical internship training on a specialized pediatric rotation, and very much welcome children and teenagers to my practice.
I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, a Registered Herbalist, and a certified yoga instructor. I am proud to be the co-founder of the The Community Clinic on Roncesvalles, an affordable community acupuncture clinic operating 4 days a week at the Herbal Clinic and Dispensary.
I am a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND), and licensed through the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. I am also a member of the Ontario Herbalists Association.
