Meet Dr. Anne
My passion lies in empowering you to take charge of your health so you can be the best version of yourself. My expertise is in the area of women's health, especially hormone health, fertility, and perinatal care. I love helping anyone who is looking to improve their health because I believe we all deserve to feel good about ourselves and our lives; when we feel good, we are able to be more compassionate, creative, and kind. I love using herbs and oftentimes grow and make my own remedies. I also use a lot of dietary and nutritional counseling as well as acupuncture to help my patients.
Having thalassaemia and an intermittently-underactive thyroid, and having been through PCOS, eczema, burn-out, and acne, I know that hope, energy, and good health can seem very elusive; however, they can be attained. Healing, like any journey in life, can be an uncomfortable and turbulent path, but this journey is also filled with joy and growth. Together, you and I will work towards transforming your health and life.
I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your health journey.
Education & Training
I obtained my naturopathic medical education at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine after completing a 5-year co-op BSc Honours program in Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences at McMaster University. She is a member in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. To learn more about how naturopathic doctors are trained, please visit www.ccnm.edu.
During my naturopathic studies, I completed an externship in Cap Haitien, Haiti with Naturopaths Without Borders and at the Sherbourne Naturopathic Health Centre in Toronto. I obtained training as a naturopathic doula with Dr. Jessica Sangiuliano, ND, and have seen many women through their pregnancies and post-partum periods. I’ve also obtained additional training in herbalism with John Redden, RH, cognitive behavioural therapy with Dr. David Denis, ND, facial rejuvenation acupuncture with Virginia Doran, ND, and iridology with Edie Pett, ND.
What Is Naturopathic Medicine?
What Tools Do Naturopathic Doctors Use?
Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care system that focuses on addressing the root causes of disease and promotes healthy living and prevention.
It combines the knowledge gleaned from modern medical research and traditional medical knowledge for a comprehensive repertoire that can be drawn from.
Naturopathic medicine is for everyone – from babies to teens to the elderly. Since everyone is different, treatment may differ from patient to patient even if the presenting symptoms are the same. Collaborative care with medical doctors is encouraged for a more comprehensive model of care.
