Sonya was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts degree. After giving birth to her second child, Sonya came down with allergies and fatigue so severe that she was no longer able to care for her young children properly. As a last resort, Sonya tried homeopathy, and was finally able to recover from her illness and live a normal life again. After experiencing the effectiveness of homeopathy first-hand, she then decided to pursue it as a career. Sonya earned a practitioner diploma in classical homeopathy after 4 years of study at the Vancouver of Homeopathic Academy. Currently, Sonya practices classical homeopathy in her own private clinic, Little Mountain Homeopathy.
Sonya is a proud professional member of the Canadian Society of Homeopaths and the Health Action Network. She has published numerous articles in various publications, including Natural News and the Georgia Straight. She was a guest on JoyTV’s “P3: People, Places, Perspectives.”
For the use of homeopathic practitioners, Sonya has done a homeopathic proving of Procyon Lotor (Raccoon). The proving will be published in the next version of Dr. Frederik Schroyens’ Synthesis as well as the next version of RADAR. She is currently involved in leading a series of trituration provings of local substances which will eventually lead to the publication of her first book.
Sonya enjoys the works of the old homeopathic masters such as Hahnemann and Kent, as well as the works of famous modern homeopaths such as Sankaran and Scholten. She has her certification in Reiki Level 1, as well as Gemmotherapy. Other alternative modalities that she has studied include yoga, fasting, herbalism, Bach Flower remedies and Schussler Cell Salts. She is an avid supporter of the Weston A. Price Foundation, an advocacy group that promotes the consumption of whole foods and raw milk.
She and her husband Usman are parents to two lovely girls aged 7 and 8.
