I grew up next to a forest and with a vegetable garden in the backyard, so I have always had an appreciation of nature and nutrition. I was also the kid who only got healthy snacks and meals, and though I would drool over other kids' chocolate milk, fruit roll ups, and chips, that foundational paradigm led me on the path to today.
I first found out about naturopathic medicine in university while studying food science and nutrition. I knew there had to be more to healthcare than what the current mainstream medical model was offering and maybe this was it. I was having some long standing digestive and pelvic floor issues and it was finally through naturopathic medicine that I found movement and traction. I felt heard, understood and cared for beyond anything I had experienced before. It was empowering to learn about my body and my health. I was drawn in to this patient-centered and nature-based approach to healthcare and I wanted to bring it to others, so here I am.
I am here to meet you where you are at. I am here to listen to your experience without judging or questioning it. Your experience is real.
You are a whole person. You are more than a body part or your physical symptoms. You are a person with a unique story, with thoughts, with emotions, and other body parts! By trying to understand you as a whole system and how you interact with your world, the more specific and well-suited a treatment plan can be formulated.
I am here as a guide. I may know about naturopathic medicine, but you are the expert in you and your life. You know what works and what does not. I can share knowledge, make suggestions, troubleshoot, and support, but you are the one making your health decisions and ultimately the one doing the healing. This is a team and I am on yours.
