I focus on empowering the patients I work with to be their own catalyst for change. I aim to create a unique environment and space for patients, in order for them to feel safe and comfortable expressing all aspects of health. This can involve exploring all aspects of their life, and their relationship with themselves and others.
I believe that health is a journey. I am passionate about being a teacher, support, and guide in order to assist patients using holistic and bioenergetic health approaches. I believe that the holistic approach involves exploring the mental, emotional, spiritual, and cellular levels of health and healing.
My treatments are largely focused on dietary and lifestyle counseling, botanical therapy, acupuncture, and exploring the deep-rooted causes for disease and dysfunction.
I am a member in good standing with the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta (CNDA), and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctor (CAND).
I am currently accepting patients in West Springs in South West Calgary.
