Julia is a Naturopathic Doctor with an interest in women’s health, digestion and the immune system. She enjoys working with people at every level of their health, particularly through periods of change, growth and stress which both create challenge and build resilience. Fertility and pregnancy, menstrual concerns, autoimmune conditions, arthritis, IBS, Crohn’s and Colitis are among the conditions she works with. Having worked in both medical and dental settings integratively, Julia has spoken on inter-professional panels and collaborated in the integrative treatment of a wide variety of patients. She teaches regularly at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. Striving to address the individual rather than the disease, Julia sees herself as a detective for the root cause. Her approach synergizes botanical medicine, nutrition, Traditional Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, Bowen Therapy and counselling. Treatment is based upon an integrative health assessment that blends Western and Eastern medicine and allows her client’s voice to be heard. Julia`s objective is to enable patients to restore and maintain true well-being, both by helping them remove the obstacles to health and by utilizing the best of natural medicine. Julia is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM), and is licensed with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. She has a bachelor of science in Biological Psychology from the University of British Columbia. She is also a certified postpartum professional and works with pregnant and new moms to support their healing and adjustment to motherhood. Outside of her practice, Julia enjoys hiking and time outdoors with her family, dance, Pilates, short stories and world music.
