About Dr. Amanda
Dr. Amanda graduated from the accredited 4-year postgraduate program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine with a degree of Naturopathy. During the fourth year of her medical training, she completed her clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic as well as the Sherbourne Health Centre which focused on providing care for Toronto’s HIV positive community.
Prior to her medical studies, she graduated from York University earning an Honours Bachelor of Science in Biology. Before discovering naturopathic medicine, Dr. Amanda considered pursuing a career in pharmacology. She has several years of experience working as a pharmacy technician where she learned the ins and outs of the conventional healthcare system. She was able to gain an appreciation for the benefits of prescription medication and their role in the healthcare system but quickly realized that there had to be more to healthcare than pharmaceuticals.
When she discovered the world of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Amanda instantly knew this was her calling. What she is passionate about and finds valuable in healthcare resonates with the guiding principles of naturopathic medicine: to treat the underlying cause of disease, to teach and share knowledge with patients, to heal the whole person through individualized treatment, to emphasize disease prevention and health promotion, and to support the healing power of the body. She enjoys and values the time she is able to spend with her patients as well as having the ability to guide and empower them to finding their path to health and wellness.
Dr. Amanda works with patients of all ages and for a variety of health conditions with a special interest in digestive health, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stress management, and perinatal care.
Dr. Amanda is registered and in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO) and is a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND).
