Focusing on total wellness and health promotion, I primarily use botanical medicine, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and counselling to support a person as they move toward achieving true balance in all aspects of their lives.


Addressing root cause, treatment often begins by optimizing digestion and absorption, while working to balance stress, sleep, and fostering a sustainable healthy lifestyle. My practice philosophy is one of supported independence: In any individual treatment plan, my goal is to help someone re-discover the tangible, practical, ways to regain balance in their lives with the minimum amount of intervention.


The best way for things to improve in the world is to begin the change within ourselves.


This is why I became a Naturopathic Doctor; creating positive change in our lives takes work, and often a little guidance, but it is possible.

I maintain a Naturopathic Family Medicine practice at the Herbal Clinic and Dispensary in Roncesvalles Village. Although I primarily see adults in my practice, I spent a year of my clinical internship training on a specialized pediatric rotation, and very much welcome children and teenagers to my practice. I also work at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine as coordinator of the botanical medicine program and professor of second year Botanical Medicine, Botanical Medicine for International Medical Graduates, and Asian Medicine.


I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, a Registered Herbalist, and a certified yoga instructor. I am proud to be the co-founder of the Roncesvalles Community Acupuncture Clinic, an affordable community acupuncture clinic operating at the Herbal Clinic and Dispensary.

I am a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND), and licensed through the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. I am also a member of the Ontario Herbalists Association.
