Born on the Saskatchewan prairies, I spent a lot of time outside, immersed in the natural world. I had an innate curiosity for the way things worked - especially the human body in its infinite complexity. When my father was diagnosed with diabetes I intuitively felt there was so much more we could do before turning to medications. By improving his diet and making small changes to his lifestyle, he was able to regulate his blood sugar and avoid pharmaceuticals for many years, which shocked and impressed his doctors.
While I was already interested in nutrition and health, empowering my father to take charge of his own wellbeing changed my perspective on what wellness really means. When I learned of Naturopathic Medicine and how it seeks to address the root cause of illness and not just symptoms, something clicked. Every human body is striving for equilibrium: by treating the whole person and removing barriers to optimal function, I believe everyone can experience health in balance.
Connecting with patients and providing them with the resources to own their health journey is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my practice. I work with each patient individually to improve foundations of health starting with small but profound changes so that these shifts can amplify to benefit future health and prevent disease. I welcome all questions so you fully understand the inner workings of your body and treatment.
I consider myself a humble guide in your health journey and acknowledge that each patient arrives in my office at different states of readiness so I work with you to determine the best treatment plan for results
