Guiding Principles

I strongly believe that education and empathetic support can empower a person to take control of their health. I believe that Doctors should provide a safe space where patients are encouraged to express themselves. Patients should feel heard, and they should fully understand their treatment options in order to play an active role in their health. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I strive to use my expertise in alternative therapies to best support those seeking guidance on their path towards the healthiest version of themselves.

Treatment Approach

My treatment approach incorporates one or several of my favourite modalities; botanical medicine, orthomolecular medicine (nutraceutical supplementation), dietary and lifestyle counselling, acupuncture, and cupping. Together we discuss treatment options and expected treatment outcomes, and collaboratively decide the most feasible and suitable course of action. I summarize everything discussed in a follow-up email with an outlined treatment plan. Laboratory work may be needed to rule in/out pathologies.

Advocate of Integrative Medicine

When conventional and alternative therapies work effectively together, patients can reduce and sometimes eliminate the need for prescription medications. In the conventional system, I find patients get lost along the line of care between their Doctors and specialists. It’s hard for their Doctors to keep up with their history and patient’s are sometimes placed on a series of prescriptions for the same issue, leading to detrimental effects. As a Naturopath, I can spend the time needed with my patients to help make sense of their current medications, investigate each condition they have and monitor them as we streamline treatment. I open lines of communication between practitioners to make sure every one involved in my patients’ health care is up to date on their current status, and work with my patients’ Primary Care Physician to safely taper their prescriptions to the lowest effective dose where possible. I collaborate with and refer my patients to Medical Doctors and alternative healthcare professionals such as Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Registered Massage Therapists, and Holistic Nutritionists.
