Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, B.Sc. (Hons)
I began my studies at the University of Toronto, obtaining a Bachelors of Science in Human Biology with a minor in psychology. I then received my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario which is an accredited four-year, intensive post-graduate naturopathic medical program. As part of my studies, I completed a twelve-month internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic and I am now a proud member of the College of Naturopaths Ontario.
Going beyond the curriculum, I advanced my education in Traditional Chinese Medicine with an externship at The National Hospital for Traditional Medicine in Hanoi, Vietnam. I also spent four weeks travelling in India as a volunteer with the organization, Child Family Health International to learn and provide basic health care in local villages.
Recognizing the uniqueness of every individual, I focus on a personalized approach to healthcare. Using a combination of modalities including acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, lifestyle counselling and homeopathy, I help guide my patients to achieving a balanced lifestyle and long-term wellness.
I have a special interest in women’s health concerns including fertility and pregnancy support as well as pediatric health. I treat a variety of conditions from weight loss, digestive concerns to mood disorders and hormone imbalances.
I am looking forward to helping you begin your journey to wellness!
