At the end of each visit, I ask you, "how much would you like to pay for this session?" The amount you tell me is the amount that goes on your invoice.
$240 for the initial visit and $180 for follow-up visits allows me to cover my clinic costs, account for the time outside the visit spent on research and compilation of individualized treatment plans, and allows me to continue to provide the accessible pricing for those who need it.
Most initial visits require on average 3 h of additional work to avoid premature closure on your diagnosis, to ensure the recommendations you are getting are current based on the literature, and for sourcing products that are cost-effective, decrease pill burden, and do not interact with your existing medications.
- Lab work, imaging, physicians' reports
- Supplements and medications you are taking (or pictures of the bottles)
- Pictures of skin or other issues to show progression
- Insurance card (if you have one)
Yes! Please park in the driveway.
Please do NOT park on the side of the road, since it is a no parking zone and you may get a ticket.
We start with you describing your chief complaint, then I ask clarifying questions about your symptoms, health history and lifestyle.
If anything requires a physical exam, we do that.
We decide on any further testing that needs to be ordered or performed on the spot.
We decide on treatments that you would like to try, and start something on the first visit.
I do further research after our visit to see if we should consider any other tests or treatments, and email you what I find.
I have dry herbs, tinctures, salves and homeopathics available in-house.
I also have acupuncture needles, electrostim, moxabustion sticks, cups, acupressure seeds, massage oil and comfy cotton sheets for massages, and towels and wool blankets for hydotherapy.
I can also perform spinal adjustments, which doesn't require any additional equipment.
Supplements that we choose together are emailed to you, which, should you choose to order them, are shipped to your home or you can buy from a health food aisle or store.
Pretty much anything - e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org, direct billing to insurance, Mastercard, Visa, American Express, cash, cheque, food, a word of gratitude.

For other companies, you will have to pay up front and claim after the visit.
Is naturopathic care for you?
Pretty much anything that isn't an emergency and doesn't require surgery or IV.
Everyday complaints that haven't been addressed, such as acne, rashes, digestive complaints, colds and flus, cold sores, urinary tract infections, irritable bladder, incontinence, allergies, thyroid issues, blood pressure and circulation issues, arthritis, aches and pains, memory and concentration issues, sexual health concerns, anxiety and depression, hair loss, premature greying and menopause.
I have also stocked up on all the hard to find herbs for Lyme disease!
I provide supportive care for asthma and cancer to add to the treatment given by your MD.
I also love to support people who are in the process of becoming mothers - before, during and after. There is also the option of having naturopathic support at your delivery.
You can always just come in for a massage because you are long overdue for one.
In 2023, I plan to start offering B12 injections, bioidentical hormones, and doula delivery-room support.
