“Health is a state of complete mental, social and physical well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – World Health Organization

My personal objective as a naturopathic physician is to provide you with autonomy; to give you the ability to advocate for yourself and your loved ones. Through education, we can learn about the underlying causes of disease and have the power to make our own choices regarding our health – one that offers personal empowerment and better quality of life.

I have a particular interest in the politics of health and illness, emphasizing the social determinants of health, public health policy and promotion, and the benefit that preventative healthcare can have in our communities. I earned my Bachelor of Arts Honours in Health Studies and Global Development from Queen’s University, and my Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. For the past year and a half I took a proactive approach to health by working with Vancouver Coastal Health during their immunization campaign. As one of the six principles of Naturopathic Medicine, preventative health allows us to take an in-depth look at our environment and impede unnecessary illness and suffering.

  • I have a general practice but also have a special interest in the following areas:
  • Mental Health (Anxiety, Depression, Burnout, Post-Partum)
  • Menstrual Health (Dysmenorrhea, Menorrhagia)
  • Digestive Health (Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Constipation)
  • Skin Health (Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne)

As a naturopathic physician, I have a wide scope of practice encompassing all modalities of naturopathic care including: acupuncture, botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, IV therapy, lifestyle counselling, and prescriptive authority. I have a passion for evidence-based medicine and academic research, having presented and been awarded for both independent and course-based research. Thus, I will support you with evidence-based dietary advice, supplemental care, and laboratory testing to create an effective and sustainable protocol that takes into account your personalized values, needs, and goals.

Having grown-up in Lynn Valley, I am ecstatic to return to my roots and have a practice on the North Shore. The North Shore reminds me of family, and I can’t wait to be introduced to yours.

I would like to acknowledge that I work on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwxw̱ ú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səlí̓lwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. It is an honour to explore this land and also call it my home.
