I am a Family Physician who trained at The Royal London Hospital medical College in London, England. I came to Canada in 2003 and worked extensively in Psychiatry as well as Family Medicine. My English background has given me a strong desire to practice preventative medicine and to empower patients with the tools they need to maintain their own health and well-being. Over the last few years I have developed a holistic approach by exploring more of the mind, body and spirit connection when it comes to healing. I have a degree in Holistic Nutrition and Advanced Holistic Nutrition and was a Faculty Member and Teacher at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Ottawa. I also worked at the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Clinic as a medical consultant providing Integrative cancer care there.
Nutritional therapy can compliment standard medical treatments for a wide variety of conditions and diseases such as Digestive and Inflammatory conditions. People with mood disorders can also benefit from nutritional support. Lifestyle counselling and coaching can also be helpful for people seeking to maintain a healthy weight.
