She creates a safe, nurturing space for healing and growth for the people she serves and is deeply committed to honouring naturopathic principles, such as addressing the root cause of illness, preventative care, and treating the whole person.
As part of her clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto, Dr. Aleks worked with young people and their families on a Pediatric Focus Shift and helped to establish a new satellite shift at Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities. While her clinical experience is eclectic, treating individuals with a wide range of presentations and incorporating all naturopathic modalities, Dr. Aleks ND especially loves to discuss nutrition with her patients and has a special interest in metabolic and autoimmune conditions.
Dr. Aleks also has over 15 years of experience as a mental health professional and holds a Bachelor of Science Honours degree from the University of Guelph, with a major in Psychology.
