I am a naturopathic physician, and I believe that quality of life comes first. I work hard to support my patients' health and goals, while actively encouraging balance. While many of our food choices and activities are hopefully "healthy choices," I believe it is also important to feed our soul. True health and wellness involves more than just our physical body and chemistry.
I really enjoy working with sports optimization, hormonal health, and chronic pain cases. In addition to this, I strive to maintain a general practice as I enjoy the challenge of general health concerns, and I believe that everyone is entitled to have a family doctor.
I rely heavily on research to determine which assessments and treatments to offer my patients, as the research base for all facets of medicine are expanding greatly. My training and experience from becoming a registered nurse has exposed me to the advantages and pitfalls of hospital care, which helped me to define my beliefs on both health and healthcare, as well as my role as a healthcare provider. I have an eclectic approach that involves physical exams, lab work, and comprehensive information gathering to maximize treatment effectiveness. I offer a wide range of treatments, from nutritional counselling and intravenous (IV) therapies to spinal adjustments and advanced injections. I am grateful to have many therapeutic tools, and I enjoy using them all when appropriate.
I love living in the beautiful landscape of greater Vancouver with my wife Brittany and daughter Chloe. I have dabbled in various martial arts, and I am currently training in Brazilian jiu jitsu which has been an incredible outlet for me.
I look forward to meeting you, and helping you with reaching your goals, while empowering you to reach the next level of health, performance, and satisfaction.
