Senior Student Clinician — Naturopathic Medicine
Erin (she/her) is a 4th generation Japanese Canadian and received her undergraduate degree (BSc. Food and Nutritional Sciences Double Major) at the University of British Columbia. She is currently in her 4th and final year of studies at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. Her passionate and heartful approach to medicine comes from her shared experience in the medical world desiring to be heard, understood, and cared for. For her, listening is key. Only through listening to each person carefully, learning their story, and finding out what makes them tick, can the whole person be appreciated. From this knowledge, Erin develops comprehensive treatment plans best suited to shift the wellbeing of the whole individual on a mental, emotional, and physical level.
Through naturopathic medicine, Erin can help you find and nurture our own resilience and capacity to heal. Healing is a journey. At its foundation, it involves what foods we nourish ourselves with, how we move our bodies, and our relationships with nature, our community, and ourselves. Erin wants people to feel empowered, capable, and ready to take on their healing journey and anything else they desire. It is an honor to be alongside those that wish to go on it.
Outside of clinic and school, Erin loves recharging in the forest, tinkering with botanical herbs, shopping at the farmers market, and sharing a nutritious and laughter filled meal with friends and family.
So the next time you get your pap done, you feel empowered in your knowledge, empowered to ask questions, and empowered to advocate for the experience you want to have.
