In my past I have struggled with a long list of chronic health complaints and illnesses. Hormonal imbalances, acne, PMS, anxiety, digestive issues, gut issues, addictions and childhood trauma to name a few. After years of following a conventional medical approach and being on countless antibiotics, and pills I decided to chose a different path that would transform my life. It became clear to me that in order to fully heal I needed to learn how to take care and nourish my body. So I made the decision to enrol in a Chinese medicine program and that started my healing journey….
I graduated from a 4 year Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Program at Shang Hai TCM College and am registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners of British Columbia.(CTCMA). I have also completed additional programs in Holistic Nutrition, myofascial massage, functional medicine, injection therapy, phlebotomy, Birth Doula, Counselling Hypnotherapy and Reflexology.
I’m passionate about medicine that is natural, evidence-based & effective. Sessions with me are unique because I combine the healing methods I have learned with functional medicine to bring each patient personalized and comprehensive care.
In my free time I enjoy traveling abroad, listening to podcasts, reading, enrolling in courses to expand my skillset, cooking and teaching others about health and nutrition.
I would love to help you improve your quality of life.
