Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP)
My purpose is to help you reach sustainable health goals that resonate with you. I want to help you go from feeling burnt out and overwhelmed to feeling calm and energized, so that you can do the things you need to do and show up for your family and loved ones.
Are you ready to feel better and have more energy?
As a recovering perfectionist myself, I understand what it's like to live life at a speed of 200km/hour with no brakes to stop.
It is what led me to burnout and ultimately, forced me to start taking my health seriously.
I believe that women can have it all, but they don't have to have it all right now. We have become so accustomed to multi-tasking that we've forgotten how to be present and how to slow down.
There was a time where hormones ruled my life and I really didn't know how to work WITH my menstrual cycle.
It wasn't until I started naturopathic medical school that I really learned that the symptoms I was experiencing were not normal and should be looked into.
Once I realized that hormones were not the bad guy, everything changed for me.
I want you to know that you can also live a life that is completely harmonious with your hormones.
I know I'm not alone in my story. Since practicing, I have helped hundreds of you have less painful periods, feel like you're not going crazy a week out of every month, and feel amazing in your bodies again.
Let me show you a different way. Let's formulate a strategy that will allow you to take effective steps to start to improve your health.
I like to always start with the foundations of health: nutrition, physical activity, sleep, digestion, and stress management. What are your current habits and routines that are stopping you from achieving your health goals? I will meet you where you are at. I will make sure that whatever treatment is provided is sustainable in the long run and resonates with you and your health goals.
Approach & Philosophy
I am passionate about providing you with accurate, up-to-date, evidence-based information pertaining to your particular concerns. If there isn’t a whole lot of evidence for a particular treatment, I will make sure to let you know. A large part of my practice is education - making sure you understand the what, why and how of treatments.
We currently live in a society that encourages doing and achieving. As a result, we lose the ability to focus in the present moment. You have the power to choose your thoughts and way of being. I am passionate about helping you take radical responsibility of your health, and this starts with your mindset.
What to expect
The initial appointment is 90 minutes in length. During this time, I will get to know your healthy history in more detail and we will set health goals for our time together. My goal as your Naturopathic Doctor is to help you reach your goals in a sustainable way.
Follow-up visits are between 30-60 minutes in length. We will check in on your ongoing plan and assess how you have been doing. We will make adjustments where needed. We may also address any new concerns that may have come up since our last appointment together.
I want to make sure that you feel supported throughout this entire journey. I will work with you as a partner in your journey to health and well-being.
