A native to Brantford, Dr. Albano is excited to have joined the practitioners at Holistic Healing Arts Centre in bringing naturopathic medicine to her hometown.
After graduating from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania with her Bachelor of Science in biology and pre-medicine (BSc), Dr. Albano went on to earn her Master of Public Health (MPH) at Drexel University's School of Public Health in Philadelphia. It was here that she was exposed to a preventative view of health care and, combining her love of nature and living naturally, returned to Canada to study naturopathic medicine.
Dr. Albano graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto in 2011.
As a primary care provider, Dr. Albano strongly believes in the naturopathic philosophies of treating the whole person, investigating and treating the underlying cause of disease, and individualizing treatment to the person.
Using a mix of naturopathic treatment strategies (nutrition, herbology, acupuncture, lifestyle counseling, homeopathy), Dr. Albano welcomes patients of any age and health concern, including digestive concerns, skin issues, body pains, thyroid or female hormonal imbalances, or emotional coping.
A former competitive softball player, Dr. Albano also enjoys working with local athletes to maximize athletic performance using natural means.
North American and Ontario Naturopathy Board Licensed, Dr. Albano is a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
