If you find yourself feeling stressed, depressed, and sleepy by mid-afternoon, you may have some questions about your hormones. Hormones control many processes in your body, including metabolism, mood, stress management, and sexual function. Imbalances can cause fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, periods that feel out of control,  gut issues, hair loss, acne, and more. Through naturopathic care, we can gently rebalance your hormones and restore your optimal health. The result? More energy, fewer mood swings, improved periods or more manageable peri/menopausal symptoms, a happier gut, clearer skin — and maybe even fewer late-night sugar cravings! 


If you feel you may be experiencing a hormonal imbalance, my free Healthy Hormone Tracker will help you create an accurate picture of your symptoms, so that we can identify the next steps to get you back on track.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is your cancellation policy?
    I require 48 hours notice for cancellations. You will be charged the full fee for appointments that are cancelled without proper notification, as your appointment time is reserved solely for you and each appointment requires preparation on my part.
  • Are my visits covered by OHIP?
    While naturopathic visits are not covered by OHIP at this time, many extended health care plans WILL cover the cost of your visit. Please contact your insurance company to find out your specific coverage. Full payment is due at the time of the visit, and you will be issued a detailed receipt which can be submitted to your health insurance company. I do offer direct billing with most insurance providers, including Sun Life and the carriers supported by Telus Health.
  • Do you offer telephone appointments?
    Yes, once you’ve come in for your second appointment, you can book telephone appointments for your follow-ups (providing no physical exam or treatment is needed). I also offer video conferencing through my secure online patient portal.
  • Is your online portal safe?
    Absolutely. I use an online practice portal that is specifically designed to deal with sensitive patient data and complies with all Canadian privacy guidelines. All files are password protected and securely stored on Canadian servers.
  • My health is complicated. Will you work with my other doctors?
    My goal is to ensure that you are receiving the highest level of care and seeing your best results. I am happy to work in collaboration with other practitioners so that we are all on the same page.
