Healthcare by women, for women
I offer one-on-one naturopathic appointments for my patients to discuss any health concern that they might have at the time. Each woman is unique, and while no two treatment plans will be the exact same, we all need to start with the foundations. With an undergraduate degree in nutrition, I believe that diet is the foundation of any treatment, but I also employ the usual naturopathic modalities of acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, lifestyle counselling, herbal medicine, and nutritional supplementation.
While no concern is too big or too small, my clinical passion lies in helping women through sticky spots in their menstrual, hormonal, and reproductive health.
Menstrual & Reproductive Health
You are a wild and cyclical being
From our very first period all the way to menopause, women’s reproductive systems are constantly in ebb and flow. Your menstrual cycle is your fifth vital sign, giving you integral information about your health on a monthly basis (like a convenient monthly report card). Whether it be fighting menstrual cramps, dealing with heavy flow, or coming off of hormonal birth control, I would love to support you. Naturopathic medicine has evidence-based approaches for all of your reproductive health concerns. I also have clinical experience in providing topical herbal eschariotic treatments for cervical dysplasia.
Get your groove back
Hormonal health is a beautiful cascade of interconnected moving parts, but when something is off, it can throw you for a loop. Your focus, concentration, energy levels, sleep, and mood can all be affected by how well your hormones are working and whether or not they’re in sync with each other. Menopause is one of the biggest hormonal concerns that I see in practice, and naturopathic medicine has so many options to deal with the most common symptoms (those hot flashes, am I right?). Let’s talk, and get you badass women transitioned into this important life stage with grace and ease.
Breaking fertile ground
Whether you’re just starting out and looking for pre-conception support, or conceiving has been more difficult than expected, I’m here to help. Fertility and conception can feel like an uphill battle, but with naturopathic tools and support, it doesn’t always have to be this way. Whether you’re doing this journey solo or with a partner, I’d love to offer my support and guidance. From trouble-shooting your fertile window, figuring out the mystery of IVF, and pre-post transfer acupuncture, I can help you in whichever way you see fit.
