Before studying naturopathic medicine, I received my Bachelor of Arts and Science in Child Development at Tufts University. I also completed yoga teacher training and trained in outdoor education at the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). These experiences have influenced my approach to naturopathic medicine by emphasizing that our health and wellbeing are intimately linked to the connections we have with our internal and external environments.
I earned my Doctor of Naturopathy at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, where I focused on lifestyle counseling (optimizing the foundations of health through areas such as nourishing food, quality sleep, movement and sense of purpose), the mind-body connection (focusing particularly on mindfulness, meditation and breathwork) and nature connection (the health benefits from cultivating a relationship with the natural world).
This approach is particularly helpful for people living with chronic pain, autoimmune conditions, other chronic conditions or anyone wanting to improve their overall wellbeing.
It is possible to experience a sense of balance and state of healing, even in the midst of pain, when the foundations of health are strengthened and meaningful relationships are cultivated with ourselves, others, and the world around us.
If you choose to work with me, know that we are a team. My intention is always to engage and empower you in your health and to enhance your quality of life.
When not in the office, I love exploring the outdoors with my husband and our dog. I am also enjoying learning to garden and trying new recipes with what we grow!
