Homeopath, N.D. (Ret)

Over 35 years experience in holistic health care
Witnessing the wonders of the body and its capacity to heal itself is what inspires me most as a natural health care practitioner in private practice in Ottawa.  I am happy to say that after over 35 years experience in holistic health care, I feel as passionate about helping people heal today as I did when I first began my career.

Is there a pattern in your self-healing abilities?
Behind every person who comes to see me in search of healing is a mystery, with clues as to what might help to enhance well-being.  I love listening and creatively piecing together seemingly unrelated elements in order to help you see new linkages in body-mind-spirit connections, shedding light on old dysfunctional habits to facilitate transformation and healing in a holistic way.

Lifestyle matters
From an early age, I was interested in our body’s self-healing abilities, and in how attitude and lifestyle choices affect our well-being.  Eating well, exercising and mindfulness have all been lifestyle choices that have helped me stay healthy and at peace throughout my life.

Discovering naturopathic and homeopathic medicine allowed me to continue down this road and was a life-changing experience for me. I was hooked!  In 1983, I received my degree in naturopathy from the National University of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. 


While practicing homeopathic medicine in Ottawa for the past 20 years, I have deepened and expanded my knowledge and skills through voracious reading and ongoing professional development. To these skills I have added Weight loss coaching in Ottawa, offering a nutritional lifestyle program called Metabolic Balance. With over 5 million Canadians suffering from weight problems, and with so many weight loss methods to choose from, I felt it was important to learn more about how to help people lose weight in Ottawa

Metabolic Balance relies on a blood analyses that measures 36 blood values (such as thyroid, cholesterol, inflammatory markers and lipid levels) which, combined with your personal data and food preferences, forms the basis of your personalized Metabolic Balance nutrition plan. We select the appropriate food items to optimally support you metabolic equilibrium to promote and maintain improved vitality, while detoxing your body and managing your weight efficiently.
