How Does Your Approach Differ From A Mental Health Counsellor Or Therapist?2020-01-09T05:15:38+00:00

Years of training and experience as a naturopathic doctor and mental health professional, I’ve learned to view well-being through a holistic lens. 

Mental health isn’t isolated to the mind.  Everything from your posture to what you eat has an impact on your mental health.

We’ll explore your relationships, how you breathe, sleep, eat, and move along with your medications.  These key aspects of your life will guide our journey.

I use tools like body-psychotherapy, body work, herbal medicine, movement, biofeedback, mindfulness practices, and occasionally prescriptive medicines to help you to regain the freedom you desire in your life.
