Hey I'm Emily! I'm a nutritionist and medical herbalist based in Canada with over 13 years of experience in the natural health world.
I love to work with folks who are looking for natural support for health concerns, and I commonly work with people on things like digestive issues, stress, anxiety and low moods and hormonal concerns.

It is the most important! Our food is the basis of everything - our cell structure, how our hormones work, how much energy we produce, how well our brains function.
That being said, it is also super important to look at the emotional aspects of food and I am actively working to toss diet culture out the window in my practice!

I love humans. We are such complex beings and it is honestly such an honour for someone to share their health concerns, challenges, and successes with me.
It is also so powerful to watch folks learn how to support themselves and become more confident with their own health. My job is done when you don't need me anymore because you can do this all yourself :)

I am an accidental entrepreneur - I completed a degree in Natural Medicine in 2013 and then realized that this wasn't a job that someone was going to *hire* me for - I had to learn to run the show myself.
It is a steep learning curve being a one-woman show, but I love the work!

Because I think we can have a good time working through hard things. I always aim to be open, compassionate and supportive, no matter what is going on. I am not here to judge or make you feel bad about your food choices or health issues - I want to stand beside you and be your cheerleader (as well as your personal health researcher!). I really, really give a shit ;)

I currently only provide online consults on Zoom or What's App (as they are both secure platforms) due to Covid 19. If folks prefer an in-person consult (and you are in NZ, which I think is just about the only place in the world who can do in-person stuff right now) I am happy to suggest a practitioner to you :)

I am only doing online consults. I have taken extra sanitization steps anytime I custom blend herbal teas or tinctures for clients. If people are near me I do curbside pickup for herbs.
I also feel strongly about referring to a medical practitioner if I think this is needed - I want you to get appropriate testing and treatment as soon as possible.


I am a trained medical herbalist - meaning I use plant medicines to help with your health issues.
These are often in the form of medicinal teas or tinctures, which can be customized to fit your exact needs.
Herbs can have a powerful effect on the body, and I lean on them a lot for things like hormone balancing, stress and mood support, immune and skin health.
There are some blogs on my website all about herbal medicine, so check them out. Or reach out with any questions you have!

I use whole food nutrition to help support your health.

That means I don't rely on shakes or meal replacements.

I believe that we can all benefit from the power of real whole foods. AND I think we can all stand to work on dismantling diet culture and realizing that bodies come in all shapes and sizes.

I always dive into nutrition in my consults, and have meal plan programs available, but may also create custom plans for you, based on your specific needs.

I have worked extensively with folks with food intolerances and allergies, including coeliac disease.

I have also worked with folks with diabetes/pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, and other metabolic issues.

Sing out if you have any questions.
