The Art and Science of Natural Healing
Naturopathic medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to improving health and treating illness. Our goal is to understand the patient and the factors which impact his/her health, providing a personal treatment plan.
The safety record for naturopathic medicine is excellent. This makes sense given the emphasis on non-toxic, natural source medicines and gentle, non-invasive treatments.

I practice what I preach and I work with patients to uncover the root cause of health issues. My goal is to help you to make positive lifestyle changes in order thrive and enjoy a healthier and more beautiful life.
Healthy cooking and baking are my true passion, my ‘raison d’être’, and I love sharing recipes that are as healthy as they are delicious.

After over 10 years of practice, my mission is to inspire and empower people to feel happy, healthy and beautiful. Attaining optimal health involves addressing the underlying causes of health issues, while assessing and integrating physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of health. “Doctor as Teacher” is my guiding principle, as I encourage my patients to take an active role in their own health. Effective, evidence-based and individualized treatment plans are built with each and every one of my patients in mind.
I have a wealth of experience in dealing with digestive health concerns, hormone health and weight loss. My special interest lies in thyroid disease, immune disorders, bioidentical hormone replacement and anti-aging therapies. I’ve also designed specific programs in detoxification, cosmetic acupuncture, weight loss and healthy aging.
I believe that the foundation of health lies in nutrition and a healthy, active lifestyle. When I’m not in clinic, you will find me staying active outdoors by running, cycling or rollerblading. I spent many years as a fitness instructor and personal trainer before finding my passion in teaching yoga. I teach yoga in the studio or corporate setting encouraging people to find balance through active movement and meditation.
