I came into Naturopathic Medicine after a friend recommended I see a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) for a health issue at the time. I appreciated how the doctor took the time to get a full picture of what was happening with my health and then involved me in my care. Over the years I have developed a special interest in digestion, hormonal health, mental health and autoimmune conditions.

Currently a student at the Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP), I am grateful for the opportunity to delve deeper into the way emotions are connected to our physical health and wellness and will begin my Psychotherapy practice in Fall 2023, alongside my Naturopathic Medicine practice. 

Over the years, I have successfully worked with people with a variety of conditions, including digestive issues such as irritable bowel syndrome and SIBO, hypothyroidism, hormonal imbalances, depression, insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain and menopausal concerns.

Part of my role as an ND is to take a comprehensive approach to health. Together we will talk about your health concerns and create sustainable short- and long-term goals. I will address your concerns with an approach that suits your needs. Having been trained in various systems of health, I offer therapies including herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, injection therapy, homeopathic medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, and lifestyle counseling. I provide care that is centred around your unique story and goals, rather than around a particular diagnosis, acknowledging the intricate connections between mind, body and emotion.

Recognizing that past and present experiences shape a person’s needs, I strive to provide a non-judgmental space. In my view medicine and health cannot be separated from the broader social, cultural and historical context.

I am a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto and a member of the College of Naturopaths Ontario. Prior to CCNM, I completed my undergraduate studies in Political Science and Journalism at Concordia University in Montréal. I subsequently worked as a writer, editor and youth facilitator.

The program at CCNM requires four years of rigorous full-time postgraduate studies, including three years of academic training and one year and 1200 hours of clinical experience. Naturopathic Doctors trained at CCNM are primary health care providers who address the root causes of illnesses.

During my clinical year, I completed a one-year placement at the Brampton Naturopathic Teaching Clinic at the Brampton Civic Hospital, and four-month long placements at the Anishnawbe Health Centre working with patients from indigenous communities; and the Sherbourne Health Centre working with patients who are HIV positive. In 2015, I practiced Naturopathic Medicine in Sheffield, England for one year and then moved back to the Greater Toronto Area to continue building my practice. 

In my spare time you can find me at the local coffee shop, on a walk by the water, reading in a park or baking chocolate-chip cookies.
