I am the founder of Rise Up For Health. I have been a naturopathic doctor in Newmarket since 1998. After graduating from Queen’s University in 1994 with an honours degree in biology I persued my love of health and nutrition at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.
My passion has been working with women’s health issues.
Over the years, the dramatic importance of the mind / body connection really came into focus. Being exposed to the benefits of hypnosis with both my pregnancies and seeing the benefits on many aspects of my life I decided to take additional training as a consulting hypnotist. For good measure I also took training as a Hypnobirthing Childbirth educator. Over the years I have taught many women and their partners to use hypnosis during pregnancy and labour to achieve a calm, gentle birth, regardless of the circumstances. I believe this is the foundation of health. If we help our children start out in the best way possible it improves their health and the health of all of us.
