Dr. Kriya was introduced to naturopathic medicine under difficult circumstances when her father was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and part of his treatment involved integrative cancer care. After his passing, Dr. Kriya started seeking out her own naturopathic care and learned the value of a healthy diet, stress management and an active lifestyle to improve one’s life. She also delved into the world of botanicals, supplements and acupuncture, as well as the many other therapies that naturopathic doctors have to offer. With the encouragement of her Naturopathic Doctor, she decided to pursue naturopathic medicine while she was still completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto. After completing her Bachelor of Science, she enrolled at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and graduated with a Doctor of Naturopathy degree in 2020.
Dr. Kriya works together with her patients to encourage them to identify and meet their health goals. Along with treating general health conditions, she has an interest in gastrointestinal issues, mental wellness, pain, fatigue and integrative cancer care.
Dr. Kriya is originally from the Caribbean islands of Trinidad & Tobago. Having grown up in the Caribbean, her true calling is at the beach, which is why she considers Nova Scotia her new home.
