Frequently Asked Questions

Yay! I’m so excited that you’re ready to invest in YOURSELF. Start by booking an initial appointment. Not ready to commit? I also offer 15 min complimentary naturopathic consults if you have some questions you’d like answered first or you want to get to know me better before committing to work together.

To enter naturopathic college in Ontario, Canada you must have completed a university degree with specific science requirements (I personally hold a Master’s degree in Nutritional Sciences from UofT and an Honours Bachelor degree in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Economics from the University of Waterloo). 

Once the ND degree is completed, naturopathic doctors must complete 2 sets of international board exams in order to become licensed. Homeopaths do not have these requirements. 

In addition, naturopathic doctors offer homeopathy as one of the many modalities they practice (in addition to clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine & acupuncture, physical medicine, etc.) while homeopaths only practice homeopathy.

The short answer is, “it depends”. It really depends on your particular health concern and how long you’ve been dealing with it. In general, chronic issues (longer than 4 weeks) take more time to resolve. But I have found that if you’re willing to put in the work, then you’ll start feeling better very quickly.

No, naturopathic services aren’t covered by OHIP. But this model is what allows me to spend more time with you (60 mins vs. 7 mins) and our visits are typically covered by extended benefit plans. Call your insurance provider to find out about your coverage.

You can see me two ways:

  1. In person at Atinama, a beautiful clinic space located in Queen West, Toronto (174 Spadina Ave #103, Toronto, ON M5T 2C2). Visit my booking page to get more information.
  2. Or you can meet with me from the comfort of your own home, through my virtual practice. I book those appointments directly through
Are you meeting me in person in downtown Toronto, at Atinama? Check out the map on the contact page for direction. Note, we are about a 10 min walk west of Osgoode subway station, right on 2 streetcar lines (Spadina & Queen) and located right beside a parking lot.

Of course! You can usually expect a prompt from when it’s about time to order a refill. But if you want to get a jumpstart, you can find my online dispensary here.

We charge a missed appointment fee of 50% of the appointment charge, if you cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment.
