Holistic Nutrition for Personal Empowerment.
Modern Healing with Traditional Roots.
Welcome to White Willow!
I am a Holistic Nutritionist, and a student of both the Edison Institute of Nutrition and the Michael Harner School for Shamanic Studies, and was a Shamanic apprentice for several years.
I have studied spirituality, psychology, traditional philosophy and holistic based nutritional health and anatomy for over17 years, both while living abroad in Switzerland, as well as Toronto, Canada, my current home.
My approach to holistic health is just that - an integrative, functional, comprehensive and unique approach to diet and well being.
I believe that supporting both our immune and spiritual systems, is critical to total body health. Having gone through extensive medical and emotional trauma, I recognize the importance of treating everyone as unique and sovereign beings, empowering each of my clients in their quest for good health.

Why See a Holistic Nutritionist?
Holistic Nutritionists combine a fundamental understanding of nutrition, various forms of psychology, biology, and chemistry among other key streams of study that allow us to understand the human being. In addition, we have the clinical experience to provide targeted information. Our training helps us put the pieces together for you, and not only provide you with the information, but with the strategies to implement the information into your day-to-day. As a practitioner, I am trained to ask the right questions. I will assess your current health status, and nutrition goals along with your lifestyle, psychologically - based relationship to food, and potential barriers to provide you with a customized nutrition plan.
Holistic Nutritionists can provide a basic education that you can use long after our session(s) are done. This can help you with digestive ailments, inflammatory symptoms, prenatal nutrition and food allergies.
It is important to note that Holistic Nutritionists are able to work with your family doctor, specialist, Naturopath or other healthcare professional (allopathic or not) and can be a key member of your health care team.
It is most important to note that a good Holistic Nutritionist will encourage and teach Critical Thinking around fad diets, fad "influencers," popular health gimmicks, and how those that sell more than teach, profit from selling all of the above.
Without good analysis and personal sovereignty, true health is never sustainable long term.
“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.”

All appointments are held either virtually or in Toronto, East end, and the location is provided at the time of booking. All payments must be made via email transfer at the time of booking. I do not provide reimbursements on cancellations. It should also be noted that no service I provide should ever replace that of your primary care physician.

Integrative Holistic Nutrition Assessments: Given the unique biochemistry of each person, a comprehensive health questionnaire is required before our appointment. This service consists of a complete nutrition and health profile, including education around food assimilation and how nutrients work with each organ, as well as an intuitive reading to provide a complete 360-degree overview of your health.
Shamanic Healing: Shamanic healing has been around for centuries, practiced by numerous cultures around the world. I incorporate traditional indigenous ceremony and ritual in my healing work. The main aim is to restore power to a person, and is a very empowering and restorative process.
