Stephanie connects the messages from your body from seemingly unrelated symptoms. She then uses natural medicines, dietary & lifestyle changes, stress-management techniques, nutritional supplements, botanical medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture and Ayurveda.
Stephanie’s passion for holistic healing stemmed from her introduction to Ayurvedic Medicine during her travels through India. The wisdom and depth of this ancient medicine was undeniable and led Stephanie to begin her personal healing journey through Ayurvedic Medicine. Her personal passion became academic as she completed a 2-year Ayurvedic Therapist program. This medicine stirred up questions and a thirst for further knowledge which led her to study Naturopathic Medicine.
During her studies Stephanie worked in community health centres, Naturopathic teaching clinics and the first integrative hospital clinic of its kind in Canada. Her experiences with community health care furthered her interest in psychology. She is passionate about working with individuals to emphasize the integration of their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual selves. Her desire is to support, guide and empower people in their own healing process and personal growth.
Stephanie is a busy wife and mom of two kids and two dogs. You’ll often find her gardening, hiking, crafting, trying out new recipes, listening to podcasts and multi-tasking!
