Holistic & Complementary Alternative Medicine
Appointments can be done virtually or in-person (Nelson, BC)
Holistic Medicine services are available both in my longer private sessions as well during shorter appointments as an MSP-insured service for BC residents with a Care Card/Personal Health# and a Doctor's referral.
I provide nutritional and other lifestyle recommendations that are informed by my education in Functional Medicine, Bio-individual Nutrition and Yoga. I also provide counselling for mental, emotional and energetic wellbeing as well that is somatic-based and includes inner-child inquiry, belief work, processing of suppressed emotions and trauma, and CBT.
I love to teach clients how to incorporate self-healing techniques into their daily lives so that they may go home with some tools and feel empowered to take their health and wellbeing into their own hands. This may include breath work, meditation, visualization, mindfulness and somatic-based exercises. Helping clients to awaken their own intuition/inner knowing and self-healing abilities is what excites me the most about my work!

My services are a complement to and not a replacement for medical care. I have narrowed my scope of practice significantly and do not diagnose conditions, order investigations, perform medical procedures or prescribe medications.
