Dr. Garber is a naturopathic doctor, medical researcher, writer, educator, speaker, and preventative health advocate. She has a strong research background being involved in several research studies and publications. She appreciates the value research brings to patient care and uses evidence-informed recommendations in her practice. She is also a writer for EcoParent and The Whole Family Magazine and has given professional education lectures to colleagues.

She is passionate about all things related to children’s health, but has a keen interest in nutrition and digestion. Her goal is to build deeper connections and rapport with parents so they feel heard, supported, and understood. Dr. Garber also enjoys working with adults to address health concerns that are related to lifestyle factors such as nutrition, physical activity, stress, and sleep. She loves to educate about health and underlying mechanisms, help others make connections in their bodies, and empower them to make changes to better overall health. Her motto for her practice is ‘less is more’. She believes health doesn’t have to be complicated and setting small, realistic goals and building upon them is the key to long-term success. 

When Dr. Garber is not seeing patients, she enjoys trying new recipes, being outdoors, exploring new places, trying new activities, having deep conversations, listening to true crime podcasts, reading self-help books, traveling around the world, dabbling in photography, and watching 90 Day Fiancé.

Land Acknowledgement

Juniper Naturopathic Clinic operates on nistawâyâw, within Treaty 8. This is the traditional territory of the Cree and Dene people and the unceded homeland of the Métis. We recognize that the colonization of this land by settlers like us was and continues to be unjust and harmful. 

We would like to honour the role Indigenous people have taken on for thousands of years as environmental stewards and we would like to show the same respect for the environment. We acknowledge that much of Naturopathic Medicine’s understanding of herbal medicine and other treatments is owed to the knowledge and wisdom of Indigenous peoples.

We are grateful for the opportunity to practice medicine, learn, and work on this land.
