Your health is my priority.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, my approach to health care is one that is naturally-focused and research-driven. I am passionate about empowering you to make informed decisions about your health. Your symptoms are part of a bigger picture. By asking critical questions, digging deeper, and using functional assessments we can find the answers you’ve been longing for. I use a combination of clinical nutrition, supplementation, custom-compounded solutions (including bio-identical hormone therapy and natural desiccated thyroid), mind-body support, acupuncture and physical therapies as part of your patient-centred treatment plan to address your needs. The magic happens when we work together as a team to address your health goals, both short and long-term.
I strive to give you the tools you need to you reclaim your health, so that you can live life feeling your best. I work with patients to achieve balance in the following areas:
Women’s health and hormones (PMS, irregular periods, fertility support)
Peri- and menopause support
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Thyroid conditions (Hashimoto’s, hypo- and hyperthyroidism)
Natural Desiccated Thyroid support
Gut health (IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, heartburn, bloating)
Skin care (acne, psoriasis, eczema)
Cosmetic or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture & Lymphatic Drainage
Well Baby and Well Child Visits
Your symptoms give us clues as to what imbalances are beneath the surface. In my practice, I use a variety of assessment tools to dig deeper and identify the underlying cause of your health concerns. Testing helps to guide treatment in the best way to address your health goals. Functional testing that I offer include:
Comprehensive Lab Testing (blood work)
Food Sensitivity Testing
Stool Analysis (GI-MAP)
Comprehensive Hormone Panels (DUTCH, CHI)
Organic Acid and Neurotransmitter Testing (OAT)
Essential & Toxic Element Analysis (hair or urine)
A true Hamiltonian at heart. When I’m not in the clinic, you’ll find me spending time in nature, exploring Hamilton’s waterfalls and trails, visiting small shops with goods from local artists and makers, and of course dining (with the occasional indulgence, of course!) on our local restaurant scene. Growing up Italian, food and family are my love languages. There is nothing I love more than spending a Sunday afternoon at Nonna’s house, sharing a delicious meal and reminiscing over fond family memories.
