I have been practising as a Naturopathic Doctor for over 17 years and have had the pleasure of treating families in Markham and the surrounding GTA. I have now transitioned to telemedicine to provide care to patients regardless of location. My areas of focus include chronic illness, women’s health and pediatrics, but I treat all conditions of family medicine. Over the years, I have made regular television appearances to provide naturopathic information to the public on shows such as Wylde On Health, Perfect Fit and Cosmetic Innovations. Answering live questions from the public is such a thrill! Conditions I often treat: •Acne, Aging & Eczema •ADD/ADHD & Autism •Allergies •Anxiety, Depression & Stress Management •Arthritis •Asthma •Autoimmune conditions •Children's Conditions •Cholesterol & Diabetes •Chronic Fatigue Syndrome •Digestive Disorders •Fertility & Prenatal Health •Fibromyalgia •Hormone Imbalances •Immune Strengthening •Migraines •Musculoskeletal Disorders •Weight Management

I will be more excited than you, when you are better. My motto is that "I am looking to touch the lives of many." Hopefully, I can make a difference in yours.

I provide an accepting, non-judgmental environment, as I support you in discovering your values, changing unhealthy thinking patterns, and designing goals to help you build the life you’ve always wanted. I offer individual appointments for children and adults of all ages. This therapy is for anyone wanting to achieve personal growth in coping with the natural challenges of life that people face in their unique situations, not just people with severe mental health difficulties. I know everyone encounters various forms of suffering and internal struggles unique to the cultural and family contexts they grew up in. While hardship is inevitable, I believe that becoming aware of your values, what you believe, who you are, and what you want out of life can bring you closer to finding your inner strength to help you overcome your suffering. I have the training and experience to help everyone from children to seniors cope with the following: •Anxiety •Conflict resolution •Coping with bereavement •Mood disorders •Coping with chronic or terminal illness •Personality disorders •Relationship difficulties •Stress In my spare time, I love learning new facts about psychology, reading books about the meaning of life, playing the guitar, working out, and spending time with friends. **Please note, Mondays are for tele-medicine appointments only**
