Lisa joined PHF nine years ago after she established her own clinical practice. During this time, Lisa has dedicated her practice to assisting patients with fertility and reproductive health concerns. She completed her Masters of Reproductive Medicine with Excellence two years ago. Lisa’s scope of practice includes assisting patients with pre-conception care, supporting through natural conception, preparation and on-going clinical support for IVF and egg freezing procedures, support through donor processes, as well as pregnancy care. Lisa provides a holistic approach to natural fertility management and is experienced in managing some of the complexities arising with reproductive health including PCOS, Endometriosis, menstrual irregularities, autoimmune conditions and male factor fertility. She provides a determined, patient-centred approach to her naturopathic care, taking the time to understand the challenges that each individual faces in their quest for pregnancy. Her philosophy is to ‘leave no stone unturned’ when trying to piece together complex cases! Lisa believes that empathy and an overarching understanding of all factors that impact on a patient’s health and well-being is essential to navigating fertility management.
In addition to fertility, Lisa sees patients for general naturopathic care with particular interest in stress, anxiety and gastrointestinal health issues.
Lisa worked as an Occupational Therapist prior to studying Naturopathy. She has also lectured and worked as a Clinical Supervisor in Naturopathic Medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health. Lisa is a mother of 3 older children and often jokes that she has way too many hobbies, one of which is to try and keep fit, healthy (and uninjured!) in the gym.
