Practitioner

bio_webAs a naturopathic doctor, I am dedicated to a multi-faceted approach to health care and well-being, safely combining natural therapies with mainstream medical treatments. I strongly believe in informing patients of their options; many times working together with their medical doctors or specialists for the benefit of the patient.

I use a variety of natural therapies emphasizing diet, nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture to address individual health concerns. Naturopathic doctors are educated in pharmacology; therefore, we understand possible interactions drugs can have with certain herbal medications. I have extensive experience working in conjunction with other health care professionals such as medical doctors to provide for the best possible health care for all of our patients.

In addition to my naturopathic medical career, I have a background in education which has given me a unique outlook on the assessment and some of the best approaches for children with exceptionalities such as ADD/ADHD, autism and general overall health. Over the past several years, I have committed myself to providing the best possible naturopathic care for families.

I am a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, Naturopathic Doctors Ontario and the Board of Drugless Therapies – Naturopathy (BDDT-N) of Ontario. For years, I have worked with the BDDT-N, responsible for the public protection in Ontario with respect to the practice of Naturopathic Medicine.

I am actively involved with the community and I enjoy participating in speaking engagements and presenting seminars on health and wellness at both the individual and corporate levels. I welcome the Spanish-speaking community to my practice, as I am bilingual in English and Spanish.

For your convenience, I offer day, evening and weekend appointments as well as complimentary 15 minute consultations to speak directly with me in regards to your health issues.

I look forward to working with you and your family.
