Update October 28, 2022: Christine’s left for her maternity leave! We are all super excited for her and are looking forward to her return next year.
I knew I wanted a career in medicine – like many others who work in healthcare, I’ve always had a strong drive to help people feel better. Yet something about conventional medicine just didn’t seem like the right fit for me. Discovering Naturopathic Medicine was a powerful moment, and I knew instantly this was the profession I wanted to be a part of.
Naturopathic medicine emphasizes a holistic, individualized approach. This means truly listening, and treating each person as the unique individual they are. It looks to address the underlying cause of symptoms, not just suppress them. It values our body’s innate healing ability, and using the most gentle, least invasive ways to help it along. It recognizes how powerful the food we eat each day can be, not only helping treat disease, but also prevent it. It’s a proactive approach to healthcare, and I love that it allows me to educate and empower patients on their individual journey. We work as a team to get you feeling your best.
I’ve become especially passionate about supporting women, through fertility struggles, PMS, endometriosis, pregnancy, menopause and more, but also love working with all different individuals and concerns, from digestive issues to autoimmune disease. You should also know I’m a pretty big nerd – if there’s something I don’t know, I’ll dig into the research to help find you answers and more options.
