Evidence based, individualized medicine,
with YOU in mind

About Me- Landing Page

Hello,

I'm Dr. Kate and I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, with a passion for empowering women to take control of their own health.

I chose a career in Naturopathic Medicine because I knew that I wanted to find a way to truly help women find optimal wellness. I believe everyone deserves to understand what is happening in their body, learn how to best support their own health, and be the primary decision maker in their own health journey.  It was my own struggles with weight, anxiety, and PCOS as a teenager that led me to Naturopathic Medicine. I needed a plan to manage my health concerns that didn’t rely on band-aid solutions to treat symptoms, but rather a strategy and plan that focused on what really mattered with my hormonal health.  With the help of Naturopathic Medicine I was able harness my hormones, and develop my own path to wellness. It is my goal to help you find your drivers seat, take control of your health, and reach your vision of optimal wellness. I am committed to spending time with you, listening attentively to your concerns, and developing a targeted individualized treatment plan to address them.  My goal is to be your partner in healthcare and to work with you to achieve your health goals. Your health matters, and you deserve to have a health practitioner that cares!

  • Initial Visit (60 minutes)- The Assessment
    In this visit we will go over your top concerns with your health in great detail and review: Past medical history Medications & supplements Nutrition Digestive health Sleep Exercise Stress Menstrual history & hormonal assessment The goal of this visit is to help assess what's happening with your health, and allow you to feel heard and supported while I get a comprehensive overview of everything that may be contributing to your concerns. My goal is to arrive at a proper diagnosis and assessment so we can initiate the most effective treatment plan. If lab tests are recommended, they will be ordered in this visit. While we wait on test results, you will leave with something actionable to implement to get you on the path to feeling better before we meet again.
  • Second Visit (45-60 minutes) The Treatment Plan
    At this visit we will review your lab results and I will share my individualized assessment of what is going on with your hormonal health. We will then discuss how we will manage what is happening with our short term goals and long term goals. Short term goals will focus on getting you feeling better ASAP, and long term goals will focus on how we plan to support your health for the next 5-30 years. Our treatment plan may include: Nutritional counselling Nutritional supplements Hormone replacement therapy IV Vitamin therapy Acupuncture Lifestyle recommendations around sleep, stress, and movement.
  • Follow up visits (30 minutes) - Building and Fine Tuning Your Plan
    In each follow up visit we will talk about what is going well, what is not working, and the progress you're making on your health goals. We will troubleshoot solutions together to keep you moving in the right direction. It's okay if life gets in the way and you've made no changes- I still want to see you! (this is why I am here- as your cheerleader). This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions or curiosities you have about your health or bring up new concerns as they arise. The frequency of these visits varies for everyone depending on what we are working on, when hormone prescription refills may be needed, or if we are using any physical modalities like acupuncture or IV therapy. Most patients feel that after 4-6 visits (usually 4-6 weeks apart) they have a great understanding of their condition, know how to manage it, and can move to the maintenance phase.
  • Ongoing Health Support and Maintenance (30 minutes-1 hour)
    Once you have a handle on your primary concerns we plan to meet again in 6 months to a year. Our goal is to check in on overall health at this time and ensure you have ongoing support in your health journey. We can reassess areas that might need support, do a current health assessment with new lab work, or discuss results from your MD or specialist if there are any. My goal is to continue to support you through life's transitions and the hormonal changes that occur as a result. Recommended Treatment Lengths for the Ongoing Health Maintenance phase. If it has been 6 months or less since your last visit please book 30 minutes. If it has been longer than 6 months but less than 1 year please book 45 minutes. If it has been longer than 1 year please book 60 minutes.
