Biography

Credentials: I am a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto where I gained my four year post-graduate Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine (ND), and completed a 12-month clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic, and the Brampton Naturopathic Teaching Clinic. I completed my pre-medical studies at Queens University. I sincerely look forward to getting to know you and working together for your better health.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

For me, being a Naturopathic Doctor provides me with the luxury of spending time getting to know my patients and furthermore, really get down to the origin of a concern, rather than applying a band-aid approach. I thrive on challenge and hope to empower patients to ask questions and become involved in their healing. My unique experiences include providing patient care at the Brampton Naturopathic Teaching Clinic, the very first hospital in Canada to offer naturopathic care, where I became an expert of integration of conventional and alternative medicine. I also have extensive experience in pediatrics along with prenatal care.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I use a unique functional medicine approach, which means each person is assessed and provided an individualized treatment plan. Just as no two people are similar, neither are treatments for common ailments! I use a combination of botanical herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, orthomolecular/functional medicine, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, homeopathy as well as lifestyle counselling catered to each individual presentation

What are you proud of in your practice?

I believe visits to the doctor shouldn’t be anxiety provoking for any individual no matter their age. The Toronto Wellness Centre provides a space that patients can feel thoroughly taken care of and walk out of the clinic feeling informed and confident they are on the road to achieving wellness. I am proud to be part of a team of incredible health care practitioners who continue to strive for excellence and are eager to provide to our community.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I am very passionate about providing naturopathic prenatal care. There is more and more emerging research showing our ability to optimize the quality of egg and sperm as well as optimization of the environment of which the baby is conceived, which can influence the health of the child and eventually adult many years later! Being able to provide that information and guidance truly is rewarding to not only to my patients, but all future generations. Furthermore, I adore treating children's concerns and enjoy being granted to opportunity to positively influence their health before it potentially progresses into something more serious into adulthood.
