I would love to help keep your family healthy, and your child’s health is of great importance to me.
The first two years of a child’s life are extraordinary and he/she will go through many changes as they grow into a busy little toddler. During this time, I recommend regular Wellness Check-Ups to assess growth and development and to address any concerns that may arise (…and there may be many, welcome to parenthood!).
You may also bring your child into the clinic at any time outside of these regular Wellness Check-Ups as concerns come up.

About Dr. Renée – Guelph Naturopath
In 2004, I received an undergraduate degree with honours in Human Nutrition from the University of Guelph and became a Nutritionist. After realizing that being a dietician was not what I was destined to become, I moved to Toronto and completed a four year doctorate program in Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). I became a Naturopathic Doctor in 2008. I am a member in good standing of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND), the Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians (pedANP), and am licensed by the College of Naturopathic Physicians of Ontario. I have also completed additional naturopathic courses in fertility, pre- and post-natal care, pediatrics, obstetrics and breastfeeding.
