For most of my life I have been interested in natural medicine, even before I knew anything about it. From a young age and into my twenties, I had debilitating headaches that would last for weeks. After years of not getting better, I finally sought out natural solutions. With nutrition, herbs and bodywork my headaches improved and I had a whole new lease on life. The fact that I could get better and stay better by doing healthy practices for myself and not have to rely on prescriptions was a complete revelation.
This started me on a long path of curiosity and investigation into all things holistic. There is nothing that doesn’t interest me from reflexology and flower essences to essential oils and homeopathy and everything
My work as a counsellor in a women’s shelter taught me a number of things: how to guide people through upheaval and crisis, the importance of advocating for my clients, and helping my clients help themselves get back on their feet.
My professional experience as a counsellor, my personal experience dealing with own health issues and my love of natural medicine inspired me to become Certified Holistic Practitioner specializing in Lyme disease and chronic illness.
