I am a natural health practitioner from Australia and my speciality is a nutritional medicine, naturopathy, and botanical medicine whose focus is routed within functional medicine.
I want to say a huge welcome to my website!
In my clinical practice, I blend the latest in human biological and genomic screening, science, and use new, traditional, and ancient remedies. I promote all foods to be eaten in moderation as a part of a healthy balanced nutrition and encourage my patients to focus on health and behaviour change instead of weight and body size.
I will help you with flexible suggestions based on your personal preferences, lifestyle and biological needs, to meet your health goals. The guidance and education around a meal and insight into how nutrition has been shown to impact a patient’s condition are always provided.
I combine my knowledge with a real world practical outlook. The ultra-busy lifestyle we lead does not leave a lot of time left to spend hours in the kitchen. For this reason, meals that are quick, tasty and easy to prepare play a large role in my approach.
I have a special interest in Integrative Oncology care and pain management with goals to support people who undergoing conventional therapies. Interventions may include personalized dietary advice and Western Herbal Medicine, as well as lifestyle and emotional support. All advices about complementary modalities are based on current and evidence-based evaluations. If required, I works cooperatively with GP, medical oncologists and other health care practitioners.
What Do I Do
Natural medicine goes beyond diagnosing the symptoms and focuses on treating the whole person. Whether you suffer from years of pain, or have health concerns, I will work with you to help you reach your health goals.

I am dedicated to find solutions for patients fighting digestive issues and intolerances, struggling with weight concerns and diets that does not work long term.

I focus on building your positive relationship with foods you love in a balance that suits your body.

My nutrition consulting service provides dietary advice to help you to eat better and guilt free, avoid restricting eating practices, understand the nourishing value of food, and work on realistic strategies to improve eating behaviors.
Why Choose Me
You will benefit from the personalized nutritional and naturopathic service, combined education, training, scientific research efforts and experience of your Naturopath, Clinical Nutritionist, and Medical Herbalist.

I will encourage you to transform your lifestyle to gain new positive experiences with food, to restore gut health and energy, support your mental health and live free pain life.
What To Expect, The Steps
Step 1 — One-on-one consultation to allow me to understand your needs and begin creating your personalised treatment plan and nutrition solution.

During your first consultation I will complete a detailed nutritional health assessment through asking about your medical history, current health goals, dietary habits and applying naturopathic diagnostic methods. You will be sent the a pre-consult questionnaire. Blood testing is necessary to get the full health picture. Functional medicine lab testing is recommended sometimes.

Step 2 — Follow-up consultation to provide support to further build up trust with your body and food. The treatment plan with short- and long terms health goals will be developed for you. The best suited supplement/herb at a therapeutic dose for your particular needs may be suggested by your practitioner. The Herbs-nutrients-drugs interactions are thoroughly analysed. Personalised dietary plan with meal eating guides and delicious recipes will be offered based on foods you enjoy.
