With her empathetic and dedicated approach, Sage aims to guide and educate her clients through an evidence-based model to reach their health goals. She thoroughly enjoys working with queer individuals, couples, families, sex workers, and single women and provides a safe space for everyone that comes to see her. Sage specialises in providing naturopathic care for fertility and reproductive health, including preconception care, fertility (female, male, non-binary and transgender), providing support for IVF/ICSI/ART, pregnancy and beyond. She also enjoys assisting patients with gut and vaginal microbiome health, gastrointestinal disturbances, hormonal health, metabolic health, and stress and mood support. Sage feels honoured to be part of each person’s healing journey, knowing that no two journeys are the same. Ever since she visited a naturopath as a teenager, this has been something that Sage has wanted to pursue. After completing a teaching degree in sports and recreation and travelling the world as a professional roller derby player, she followed her heart back into naturopathy, completing her Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) at Laureate University in Melbourne. Sage is a member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) and is one of only a few naturopaths who is a member of the Fertility Society of Australia (FSA). With a love of writing and her experience in education, Sage has collaborated with leading experts to write content for new graduate programs for naturopaths and has also created a six week free course for individuals focused on preconception through to natural/IVF/IUI conception. Passionate about providing naturopathic support for those who are discriminated against, Sage has a strong understanding of how healthcare for the queer community is underrepresented and poorly understood. This drives her enthusiasm in supporting and educating other practitioners on how to create queer-friendly clinic environments, as she knows that clinical outcomes and the overall health of the LGBTIQA+ community will ultimately be positively impacted on a larger scale. Sage looks forward to partnering with you on your health goals while embracing who you are. Read more

Healthy lifestyle changes and specialised conception protocols form the basis of naturopathic fertility care and can be applied at any stage of your fertility journey, even if you are well down a path of medical intervention, including surgeries or IVF procedures. Sage is a bit like a clinical detective pulling together information from your previous health history, current health issues, test results and other sources to assess your fertility status. Depending on your individual presentation, Sage will incorporate some or all of the following in their diagnostic assessment: nutritional deficiency checks hormonal balance tests detailed dietary assessment blood tests to assess your cellular health and tissue performance genetic testing regarding metabolism of specific nutrients diagnosed conditions such as autoimmune or thyroid conditions signs and symptoms in any system you reveal in your consultation a detailed personal and family health history environmental toxin load from work or home This detail helps Sage put together a plan to improve your fertility. Your plan will always include very detailed diet and lifestyle interventions (food as medicine) specific to you, which is also appropriately augmented with nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine and sometimes homeopathy. Sage may also recommend support from other practitioners or be in communication with other carers to ensure comprehensive care and optimum results. The aim is to ensure you have sufficient energy and nutritional status to conceive, experience a healthy pregnancy and go on to have a healthy, happy baby! You will need to arrive 10 minutes early to your initial consultation to fill out a new client intake form. This is a small 3 page form where you fill out information such as your name and contact information, emergency contact, relevant medical history, and list any medications or supplements you may be taking.
