Whatever brought you here, you’re in the right place!

Naturopathic care from the comfort of your own home. Virtual care has revolutionized how you receive care, making it easier to fit into your busy schedule & remove commute time. Appointments are available via secure video and/or phone for any resident of Ontario.
You have options - My treatment style includes a personalized combination of blood work and additional testing options, diet and lifestyle counselling, botanical medicine, and supplements.
My job as your naturopathic doctor is to ask the right questions, thoroughly investigate with the right tests, collaborate with other healthcare team members, and understand all aspects of your health to develop a custom care plan for you.
The appointment includes a full assessment of chief concerns, complete health history and in-depth questioning around the 6 cornerstones of health. We will discuss my professional opinion on the links between your symptoms and the possible root causes of your concerns. We will review testing options and how we will track your progress when treatment is started.
This appointment takes place 2-4 weeks after your initial appointment. It is just as important as the first visit as we lay the roadmap to your success.
The appointment includes reviewing of your Individualized Comprehensive Strategic Plan and an in-depth review of any testing results.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture works by moving qi, or energy, within the body. By unblocking stuck qi and helping it flow better, we increase our body’s natural ability to heal. Research has shown acupuncture locally increases blood flow, decreases inflammation and pain signals in the body and has been shown to benefit a wide variety of acute and chronic concerns!
Acupuncture for stress: 60 min appointment including guided meditation, bodywork and an acupuncture treatment focused on regulating the nervous system and calming the mind.
