Hi, I'm Kristin
I AM A NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIAN, ACUPUNCTURIST, MENTOR, AND EDUCATOR WITH A PASSION FOR INTEGRATIVE HORMONAL HEALTH.
Since 2005, I have practiced Naturopathic Medicine on Vancouver Island, serving, supporting, and educating a beautiful and diverse community. My belief in our incredible capacity to heal is at the root of all of the work that I do.
I have a special interest in complex endocrine concerns, and I love digging deeply into tricky and complicated health issues to discover the most natural and effective way to restore health, harmony, and balance. Helping women navigate the physical, emotional, and spiritual shifts that accompany midlife transitions in a way that is both informed and empowered is a major focus of my practice. I am one of a small number of Naturopathic Physicians in accredited as a Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP) (formerly North American Menopause Society (NAMS) Certified Practitioner (NCMP).
I see patients in person and virtually through Little Bird Farm and Naturopathic Clinic in Saanichton, British Columbia. In addition to my private practice, I offer virtual community programs that are designed to deepen your understanding of your body, offer tools and resources to gently optimize your health, and provide you with the knowledge you need to make health decisions with more ease and intention.MORE ABOUT THE CLINIC

DOWNLOAD MY FREE GUIDE:
Connecting to your body's wisdom
THE TRANSITIONING TO PERIMENOPAUSE WORKBOOK
This complimentary guide was created to help you orient to this transformational time of your life. Through this downloadable guide, you’ll discover the foundations of tracking your cycle and your symptoms – this will allow you to more intuitively connect to yourself and to your current rhythms, so that you can both be present with and anticipate the changes that are coming.
In both my clinical practice and my virtual programs, my focus is on the creation of health, rather than the treatment of specific symptoms. This deeper, more holistic approach emphasizes restoring harmony, resolving imbalances, empowering the body’s self-healing abilities, and preventing future disease. I believe in considering health from a whole-person perspective. Most often, health needs to be addressed on more than one level – the biochemical, structural, energetic, and mental/emotional aspects of health all play a meaningful role. Alchemical healing work and its central emphasis on the inner life, psyche, and spirit is an essential component of my practice.
I AM FASCINATED BY THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN THE BODY’S SYSTEMS, AS WELL AS THE INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF OUR PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL SELVES.
There are many different experiences, circumstances, and environments that may influence our health. I work with the knowledge that each person has a unique history that is lived and breathed through their entire being. This story plays an integral role in your health and well-being, and I approach each story with respect, empathy, and warmth, and without judgment. I am grateful that my work in the world allows me the privilege of hearing and holding people’s stories and appreciating the infinite beauty and wisdom of the human experience.
