Dr. Noelle (ND) understands it can be to find solutions for your child’s mental and emotional needs. It can be overwhelming to figure out how to help your child. The possibility of your child needing medication can be scary. Though medication may be necessary in some cases, a good first step is to rule out nutritional deficiencies and as the source of the problem.
Naturopathic doctors aim to uncover the root of the problem, whether it be:
- nutritional deficiencies

Often children with anxiety, depression and behavioural issues are showing symptoms of an underlying problem.
We live in a society where food is quick and low in nutrients, and its hard to get healthy foods into our kids. Our children’s bodies are complex and have specific requirements for vitamins, minerals, protein, and healthy fats to create happy brain chemicals. Our brain is dependent on what we eat for nutrients to support a healthy brain and happy mind. The solution to the problem may be as simple as changing some of the foods our kids eat or providing supplemental nutrients.
Noelle is a naturopathic doctor dedicated to providing your child with excellent care and natural solutions for a happy brain and a thriving mind. At the clinic Noelle will complete a complete health assessment to get to the root of why your child is feeling the way they do. She will discuss ways to support a happy, healthy brain in your child with targeted nutritional therapies and lifestyle changes. She will work with you and your child to come up with a treatment plan that is both safe and manageable.
