Considering herself a "science geek from way back,” she makes a point of staying up on the cutting edge of medical science and alternative medicine. Her treatment philosophy is to lay the groundwork with sound medical science and to treat the cause whenever possible... and to always consider the psycho-social, emotional, spiritual health of individuals (and communities) which have a profound impact on physical health. The body/mind/spirit is inextricable!
Dr. Eriksen also believes it is important to educate patients about their health and about current medical practices/procedures so they can make healthy, informed choices. She refers to medicine as her “calling” and she approaches patient care (and life in general) with curiosity, kindness, enthusiasm, creativity and humour.
Dr. Eriksen’s undergraduate training was at the UofA in biological sciences, with a focus on genetics and microbiology. Thereafter, she attended the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM.) In her final year of naturopathic medical training, Dr. Eriksen enjoyed a very busy internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic (North America’s largest Naturopathic Medical facility) and completed a rotation at the Sherbourne Clinic for HIV+ patients.
Upon graduating in 2008, Dr. Eriksen obtained a naturopathic medical license in Alberta, and maintains membership in good standing with the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta (CNDA) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND.) She is currently in general practice at Tailor Made Wellness Clinic in Sherwood Park, AB.
