Hello! I’m Emily – a Holistic Nutritionist (HNC) and emotional wellness advocate with a special interest in autoimmunity and the mind-body connection. I have a deep love of food, and of using food as the simplest form of daily medicine.
I studied at Pacific Rim College, and am a member of the Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals (CAHN-Pro). With over 300 hours of clinical experience working with many issues from digestion to adrenals to hormones, I especially love supporting those with autoimmune conditions.
Diagnosed with Graves and Hashimotos Thyroiditis, I discovered the hard way that our relationship with food can directly impact our health on a deep level – either causing or reducing inflammation and potentially illness. When I became really sick, my experience left me passionate about using nutrition as medicine. I also believe the psychological impact of a chronic illness can sometimes be even more challenging than the illness itself. Therefore, I place great importance on incorporating emotional support into my practice.
Holistic nutrition looks beyond food by considering mental and emotional health, environment, and lifestyle as integral to sustainable health and healing. There is no magic bullet! Change takes work, and I am here to support you with yours. In my practice, I become a part of your health team. I utilize a holistic approach by incorporating Ayurvedic and Chinese traditions with modern Western ideology and some herbal medicine. I meet you where you’re at in your unique journey and help you find what works best for YOU.
I wholeheartedly support you in nourishing your body, mind and soul through nutrient-dense whole foods, mindfulness techniques, and overall health and lifestyle advice.
