As a licensed naturopathic doctor, I am passionate about supporting my patients in addressing all of their health concerns in a holistic way. I received my certification from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, and am certified in intravenous therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and acupuncture as well as holding prescription rights.
Before attending medical school I achieved my bachelor of science from SFU in molecular biology and biochemistry. During this time I was involved in research which focused on neurodegenerative diseases (Including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, frontotemporal dementia). As a result of this work I received multiple scholarships and have been published on several research papers. After working in a research lab for three years I realized that my true calling was working one-on-one with people to address their individual health concerns. I truly feel that this experience has contributed to my appreciation for ensuring my patients receive evidence-based treatment plans.
During an initial visit with me you can expect to have a full health history taken where all concerns can be discussed. There will also be a physical exam, labs, and an initial treatment plan. The treatment plan may include lifestyle changes, nutrition recommendations, botanical medicines, supplements, acupuncture, and more.
