The focus of my clinical practice is on the optimization of mental and neurological health with nutrition, lifestyle counselling, and botanical (plant-based) medicines. I promise to offer a caring approach to the evaluation and management of mental health from a naturopathic perspective. I graduated from Bastyr University (Kenmore, WA) with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Following graduation, I furthered my clinical training by completing a Family Practice Residency sponsored by the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (Portland, Oregon). In 2008, I obtained a Master of Science degree in International Primary Health Care from the University of London (London, UK). In 2016, I obtained a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville Univeristy (Fredericton, NB). At the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (Toronto, Ontario), my primary responsibility is the delivery of safe and effective naturopathic medical care in the role of Chief Naturopathic Medical Officer.Link to curriculum vitae
