ABOUT YOUR APPOINTMENT
An initial appointment for a new patient lasts approximately 1.5-2hours and includes a thorough exploration of your primary health concern and underlying factors. We’ll discuss your dietary likes and dislikes, sleep patterns, digestive function, emotional health, anxieties and stress factors. This information leads me to understand your underlying constitutional patterns which allows me to create the most precise formulas that may be able to help you. I evaluate a person’s health on three levels: mind, body and spirit. My goal is to assist a person to regain their personal freedom on all these levels.
After your appointment I will give a homeopathic remedy, or a herbal formula – usually both.
In some cases, it can take a few days to create your formula, after which time I will mail your remedies to you or you can pick them up if you are local. If you seek my assistance with only herbs or only homeopathy please specify when you set up your appointment.
I may recommend nutritional supplements or individualized lifestyle changes to assist your body during It’s healing process. In some cases if it fits, I recommend rituals, ceremonies or personal practices to help shift the mind and the spirit.
Depending on how acute or severe your condition is, I may suggest a follow-up appointment, which lasts 45min – 1hour, 3-4 week later. Of course, how often you come in for follow up treatment is up to you.
The cost of a New Patient appointment ($189) includes tax, and also your remedies (homeopathic or herbal) for one month.
Subsequent follow-up appointments ($99.75) includes the cost of your primary homeopathic prescription, but does not include herbal formulas or special ordered products.
There may be other supplements or herbs I recommend that you purchase separately at a health food shop.

“I’ve observed homeopathy’s usefulness in a number of my patients with a variety of conditions, including autoimmune disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, skin problems, and allergies. I’ve also used it myself with good success.”
— Dr. Andrew Weil MD, pioneer physician in integrative health and author

Acute appointments are booked for an acute illness for yourself or your family member (cough, cold, flu, sore throat, recent injury etc) that likely doesn’t warrant a full appointment. Acute appointments are only for existing patients for whom I already have a file and background information. These appointments are scheduled on an as-available basis through telephone or email.

HEALTH INSURANCE Registered Homeopaths are recognized by the following insurance companies:
Claim Secure, Green Shield, Medavie Blue Cross, Manulife, Pacific Blue Cross, and SunLife.
It is the responsibility of the patient to check with their extended benefits carrier to ensure their policy includes homeopathic treatment (sometimes included under paramedical services). If your policy does not provide the coverage you require, you are encouraged to be pro-active. You can write the insurance company, asking them to include homeopathy in your type of coverage.
