I’m from the east coast of Canada but have been migrating westward since high school. Before moving to the US, I completed an MSW, and lived in Toronto where I worked briefly in a shelter for women and children, made a couple of documentaries, and then moved to Vancouver where I studied pre-med sciences. During this time Naturopathic medicine was a wonderful discovery for me when I had some of my own health challenges. I was so impressed with the way my Naturopathic doctor practiced with the right mix of science, tradition, and heart.
After graduating from the Naturopathic medicine program at Bastyr University in Seattle, I did a residency at the Community Health Centers of King County, and studied acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
I have also done training in counseling, Integrative Oncology, NAET, Cranio-Sacral therapy, Bowenwork, and Reiki.
My first practice was in Vancouver, BC in 1997. Since then I have created clinics in Seattle, and now in Bellingham, where I am very happy to live and practice in such a beautiful community.
