I first want to say “Thank you” for visiting my website. From a young age, I have always felt a great passion to help people. Each day, I grow stronger in my desire to bring better health and love into this world. I know its my purpose for being here.
I received my Naturopathic Diploma in 2011 from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. Prior to that, I received a Bachelor of Arts with Honours from York University. This was the foundation of my learning and “medical knowledge”.
Some other jobs that contributed to my breadth of knowledge were as such; I was a Personal Trainer for 10 years, helping people lose weight and get fit. I also led Yoga Classes at a Hot Yoga Studio and privately. I was also a Soccer Trainer for the Women’s Richmondhill Soccer Team.
The knowledge I gained from my Naturopathic School was very multi-dimensional. I learned about nutrition, supplementation, diagnosing conditions, pharmacology, counselling, acupuncture, homeopathy and herbal medicine. I am never lost for ways to help people. I feel like I have so many tools to help people and I have found over my years in practice, some of the clinical pearls of proven success. Having said that, and also letting you know I married a Medical Doctor (Dr. Joe) I am not ignorant to conventional medicine and its role in health care. I am very open to the marriage of both (no pun intended) to bring better health care to our world. So if you are already on medications and are looking for conjunctive therapy, I am happy to help. If you feel unsure about which treatment to commence- natural or conventional- I can help guide you. I pride myself on taking the time to get to know you as a person and feel humbled at the opportunity to impart wisdom and knowledge to people.
It does not matter the reason for coming to see me. You don’t need a reason other than, “I want to prevent disease”. I treat a variety of conditions and enjoy helping each person better understand their health and root cause for dis-ease. I meet patients where they are comfortable and always connect with each of my patients in a heart centered way. Most people tell me that I have a very calming presence and they feel very safe in my care. It is also said that others feel my passion in helping them feel better. Growing up in a big Italian family, I was always taught to treat others with love and respect and always make people feel right at home. I am humbled with what I have and all that I do and I would be delighted to meet you and help you feel “right at home”.
