Naturopathic Doctor​

Medically Trained. Naturally Focused.


My goal is to provide individualized care that is comprehensive, sustainable, and meets your health objectives.

I have been a Naturopathic Doctor since 2000 and I am very passionate about my profession.  I am a General Practitioner of Naturopathic Medicine; however, I do have special interests in women’s health and pediatrics.

My interest in Naturopathic Medicine started at a very young age. My parents taught my brothers and I that food should always be our medicine and also reinforced the philosophy pertaining to the healing power of nature.  When I was studying for my undergraduate degree in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa, I spent an afternoon at the career centre.  I was looking through different brochures and pamphlets and the one for the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine literally fell into my lap!  I knew at that moment what I was meant to do and have never looked back!

In addition to my Naturopathic practice, I also teach at the University of Windsor.  Teaching has been a great opportunity to work in academia and I greatly value interacting with the faculty and students in Human Kinetics. Teaching has definitely encouraged me to work outside my comfort zone and I am very grateful to have been challenged in such a rewarding way.

All Naturopathic Doctors have their own style of practice.  I am very practical in my approach to Naturopathic Medicine and I am a firm believer in the principle of process to help achieve desired outcomes.  The way and quality of how we move towards wellness and health promotion is incredibly important.  As equally important, I willingly work with my patients as part of their health team and collaborate with all health professionals whenever needed.  When we are all on the same page and communicating together; it is always to the benefit of our patients. 

At the end of each appointment, it is my intention the treatments that are suggested make sense to the patient and that the recommendations are achievable.   

I look forward to working with you!
