Her interest in integrative healthcare developed while working with Mother Theresa’s orphanage for disabled children and palliative care hospital in India. It was here that she learned how an integrative, open approach to healthcare is what best serves the patient, their families, and their community.
In her home-based practice, she uses tools to support her patients on their healing journey such as nutrition, botanical medicine, lifestyle and dietary counselling, as well as resources to support a deeper dive into the more spiritual aspects of healing. She strongly believes that providing a compassionate and safe place to be heard from is an important part of the healing process which is why she has chosen to work from her home, rather than the larger clinics she once worked from.
