After graduating from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2013 with a BSc in Biology & Psychology, Dr. Sofie wanted to put her scientific knowledge and passion into practice. She furthered her studies and graduated with a Doctor of Naturopathy degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in the spring of 2018. Dr. Sofie was drawn to naturopathic medicine as it allows her to explore the root cause of disease in a holistic manner. It offers natural treatment modalities that address mind, body, and spirit. Naturopathic medicine incorporates evidence-based research, which satisfies her inquisitive mind, while complementing it with traditional modalities that explore the more energetic levels of healing. Dr. Sofie supports her patients by developing individualized treatment plans that address diet and lifestyle in addition to other natural modalities, in order to achieve optimal health. She strongly encourages her patients to be their best health advocate. As a Naturopathic Doctor, she is there to guide, educate, and empower her patients along their journey to find balance in their everyday lives. Dr. Sofie is especially interested in treating conditions related to stress, gastrointestinal health, thyroid and hormones, and brain health.
