I am a Perth Naturopath, based in Safety Bay and have a special interest in autoimmune and mental health issues.
I am passionate about my work as a Naturopath and love the detective style investigation involved in identifying the root cause of an illness or condition.

I have always been interested in health and mental well-being, and initially graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)
A husband and 4 children saw me working in hospitality as a cook and manager of restaurants for over 30 years, thereby understanding the importance of nutrition and getting the best out of food.
Illnesses present throughout the extended family led me to further understand the significance of diet and lifestyle on health. As a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) graduate, I completed an intense 4 years of training in herbal medicine, nutrition, diet and lifestyle factors.
Using these skills, I like to consider the person holistically; body mind and spirit. Taking into account your specific needs and lifestyle, I devise an individualised treatment plan based on scientific and traditional medicine approaches. This includes a strong emphasis on dietary and lifestyle choices, and education in order to achieve optimal well-being.
I am a Perth Naturopath, accredited with the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) and the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS) and now run a professional clinic in Rockingham.
"Pachamama" is the Inca goddess and benevolent deity "Mother Earth" who epitomises the idea that no living creature can survive without clean air, water and soil. "La Pachamama" signifies the interwoven connection between the goddess and all of nature.
The South Americans believe that problems arise when too much is taken from Pachamama. Balance is the key and may be achieved through naturopathic principles. The body is designed to heal itself and we work with you and guide you on this path to achieve health and vitality.
