I’ve always known that I belonged in some form of health care making a difference and treating patients. After receiving my Honours Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Toronto, I found myself at a crossroads. While I wanted to medically treat patients, I felt conventional medicine, personally left something to be desired….
I became aware of Naturopathic Medicine and the idea that this form of medicine emphasized treating every patient as a unique individual and through natural means.
I obtained my Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). This intense 4-year training included completing a one-year internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic.
In addition, I completed an internship at the Parkdale Community Health Centre, where I was privileged to have the opportunity to offer naturopathic services to members of the community in need.
I am strongly dedicated to not only effectively treating my patients but also to educating them about their conditions and how they can act to maintain optimal health and prevent further issues. I believe that it is my job to empower my patients and inspire them to take a more pro-active approach in regards to their health.
I am committed to working with my patients and having them achieve their own personal goals. I am trained in and often use different naturopathic modalities such as acupuncture, botanical medicine, nutrition, homeopathy, bodywork and lifestyle modifications.
A particular interest of mine is treating mental health issues such as stress, anxiety and depression. I am a big advocate of mind-body medicine and have received additional training in Holistic Counseling.
I am a member of both the Canadian and Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND and OAND) and am registered with the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy – Naturopathy (BDDT-N).
