As someone who lived a lot of my life in my head rather than connected to my body, I was often mystified by symptoms that seemed to pop out of nowhere.
There seemed to be a disconnect between my mind and my body.
My mind said I was fine, I was strong and things were good. But my body would tell a different story. It would toss and turn at night, rebel against food, refuse to sit still, or feel exhausted for stretches on end.
Many well-intentioned doctors gave their two cents - uppers for ADHD, downers for sleep, one drug to increase appetite, another to deal with nausea. Different doctors for different diagnoses, each prescribing different pills for different conditions.
It took a while to realize the piece-meal approach wasn't going to work.
That True wellness comes from looking at the whole picture, not dealing with parts.
Believing that there should be more to health care than just symptom management, I dedicated my career to looking beyond the smoke and treating the fire.
By combining integrative assessments with naturopathic treatment, I address both the symptoms and the underlying cause of ill-health. Going beyond a one-size-fits-all model, the goal is never "dealing with" but "moving past." Thriving, not surviving.
I have post-graduate degrees in Naturopathic Medicine and Psychology, and I am registered with both the College of Naturopaths of Ontario and the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
