Medicine requires cooperation, support, and honesty.
This is true in all facets of our lives, and medicine is no different. My goal is to support each one of my patients on their healing journeys through realistic and effective measures. Healing begins within, and through a true respect of each of our own innate healing capacities, my focus is to grow and nourish this ability to expand wholeness in each of the individuals and groups that I work to assist. My journey of education and naturopathic medical practice took shape after completing my honours degree in Environmental Engineering (BSc.(Eng)) at the University of Guelph in Ontario. After working in the engineering field assisting with remediation and the clean-up of large scale oil and gas projects it became apparent that it was time to switch directions and discover what possibilities were available in the field of medicine, and specifically naturopathic medicine.
In Agency Health clinics in White Rock and Abbotsford, BC, I practice as a licensed physician of naturopathic medicine (ND). As an ND my job includes diagnosing disease, prescribing medications, requisitioning for blood tests while giving my patients the option of other treatment therapies that may fit them better than conventional treatments, such as herbal medicines, diet counseling, or acupuncture to name a few. I spent 4 years training to become a naturopathic physician at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. I am a member of the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia, the British Columbia Naturopathic Association, and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
It is thrilling to be a part of my patient’s and student’s journeys through learning and new health: I also teach Nutrition & Health: the Fundamentals at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition’s Vancouver Campus. I’m truly excited to be practicing the medicine I love, in a place as incredible as British Columbia and to make the path of health of each individual I work with as enjoyable and interactive as possible.
