About Dr. Alison



I have had the privilege of being surrounded by excellent role models growing up, and have developed great appreciation for taking care of my health; body and mind.  Let me share with you what I’ve learned. 


Walking the walk.  As a past National Gold Medalist figure skater in my teens turned varsity athlete, marathon runner in my early 20s, healthy eating advocate, and now naturopathic doctor, I am in constant pursuit of learning medicine, and all things health and wellness related.  I believe in practicing what is preached.


My treatment plans are not only researched-based, but are realistic.  There is no magic pill, as it does take effort working on your health, but the reward is great; living in good health.  Creating a lifestyle that supports long-term health is the goal.


I run a general naturopathic practice, with special interest in digestive health, hormones, weight loss and mood.
