Supporting Resilient, "Boundaried" Women™

Are You Ready to Move BEYOND Your Autoimmunity?

Do you feel like a ticking timebomb at the mercy of your 
autoimmune condition?

Are you tired of feeling tired and in pain all the time?

Are you feeling overwhelmed and confused about 
what's going on in your body?

Do you feel like you have no idea what to do or where to turn?

Are you here to do big things but feel limited by your autoimmune condition?

Are you interested in not letting this autoimmune condition define you?

Do you feel like no one understands what you are going through?

Do you know deep down that there has to be a better way?


I am on this journey with you! 

I understand that this journey can be challenging but you don't have to do it alone!

I understand that taking care of your health involves more than just taking a pill.

I know that you can feel better than you have in spite of your autoimmune condition.

You can transform your health in an empowered and connected way with a beautiful and supportive community by your side.

Let's move beyond our autoimmunity together!

There is a better way

Engage in deep, meaningful & positive conversations

It is time to start changing the conversation around autoimmunity! An autoimmune condition is not a death sentence! It is possible to thrive with autoimmunity - I'm excited to show you how!

Reconnect with your body & your intuition

Often we start to resent our body and fuel the "self vs non-self" battle going on inside. Now more than ever we need to reconnect with our bodies in a healthy way so we can intuitively know how to better support it.

Learn how to set boundaries for your health

The old oxygen mask analogy! Learn ways to support your health so you can be more present and get to doing the things you dream of doing!

the power of community

Power in numbers

Working together in a group is way more fun than going it alone! Plus, lifestyle changes are much more likely to last when you do it in a group. You can fly forward with a little extra support!

I see your invisible illness

There is something to be said about being surrounded by others who know your journey! Maybe you feel like no one understands why you need to eat a certain way or you have to do certain things to stay healthy. You deserve a community that understands you, lifts you up, and helps you thrive. 

Community is Medicine

We are wired for connection and thrive when we have it. We need community now more than ever! Join a community of women that you can be vulnerable with, share your fears and your wins, and discuss how to keep moving forward towards the life and health that you so desire and deserve. 

Intentions Of the
Beyond Autoimmunity™ Collective

I understand that this journey can be a challenging one. 
Let's use the power of the collective to support each other and 
catalyze our healing journey!
Build a supportive community of like-minded women
With autoimmunity being so common, why is it such a lonely journey? We can change that! 
Understand our bodies and autoimmunity
Knowledge is power. You will learn to better understand your body and what things best support 
your health. 
Change the conversation
Rather than focus on the sickness and fear of autoimmunity, we will shift our focus to what we want -feeling healthy and vibrant.

The "Boundaried" Woman

  • She is self-aware and aligned with what she needs for her health
  • She understands and is in tune with her body and her intuition
  • She has the courage and compassion towards herself to say "no"
  • She is not defined by her autoimmunity but is grounded in her body's wisdom

"We don't have to do all of it alone. 
We were never meant to."

About Me

I'm a mom, community-builder, Naturopathic Doctor, and the owner of Roots Naturopathic Wellness Center. I am on a soul-driven mission to support and empower other women with autoimmune conditions to intuitively navigate their healing journey and thrive! 

I am also passionate about changing the conversation around autoimmunity. It is possible to thrive with autoimmunity! I have always felt like there can be deep meaning, growth, and beauty in our autoimmune journey.

As a fellow Autoimmune Thriver™, I have been on my own healing journey since being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis years ago. 

I was frustrated with the conversations I was having with my doctors. I just couldn't accept the "I'm sorry, there's nothing you can do...these are just the cards you have been dealt" approach to autoimmunity. 

I felt disempowered, alone, and like a ticking timebomb at the mercy of my autoimmune conditions until I stepped into the driver's seat and took charge of my health. 

I often see women with autoimmune conditions in my practice feeling the same way because they don’t have the support they need. There is so much we can do if we band together! This, along with my own journey, is what inspired me to create the Beyond Autoimmunity™ Collective.  

I so look forward to being on this journey with you!

Your Flare-up Management
Your Intuition & Being a "Boundaried" Woman 

I know what you are thinking...

1) I don't have enough time or the energy...
I get it, our schedules are busy! It is easy to get caught up in thinking this isn't the right time. I have been there! We think that in the future once this or that happens we will be in a better spot to do something for ourselves. 

The reality is, you will never find time unless you make it.

Once you put yourself first, take some time for yourself, put the things in place you need for your health, start living from an empowered and connected state, I'm confident that you won't regret setting this time aside for you. You may even find yourself being more present in your time away from the program.  There is so much to be gained by taking the time now.  
2) It's okay to do something for yourself
I see women every day in my practice that are doing all the things for everyone, except themselves. They feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Our instinct is to push through and put everyone else’s needs ahead of our own when we often just need to stop and do something that recharges OUR battery! I know, I have been there too!  

It’s time to do something for yourself. 

Imagine how your life could change if you listened to your gut instinct and said "yes" to doing what you want to do and no to what doesn't serve you anymore? I get goosebumps just thinking about it! 


  1. What if I can't attend the live sessions?
    No problem! All modules will be recorded so you can watch the sessions you miss. You will also receive all handouts and resources. You will have lifetime access to the recordings so you can rewatch them as often as you want to.
  2. What if I'm an introvert?
    First of all, as a fellow introvert myself, I hear you! The program is designed to meet the needs of all connection styles. We have content that energizes the extroverts and we hold the space to support and nourish the needs of the introverts.
  3. Are we able to get the same level of connection and community feel virtually as we do in-person?
    Yes, it is possible! I have been part of several communities throughout COVID and I can assure you that the connection and tribe feeling develops just the same. No compromises will be made.
  4. Is this program covered by extended health benefits? 
    No. This is a group educational program where you will get lots of recommendations that you can personalize based on where you're at in your health journey. We will not be engaging in a doctor-patient relationship and there will be no individualized recommendations made. The information you gain will be able to be brought back to your healthcare team so you can advocate for your health in an empowered way. 
  5. What if I don’t want to share?
    There is no pressure to share at all - Beyond Autoimmunity is all about listening to and honouring your needs. Although you may feel inspired to share with time, as this group experience will be different than what you have likely experienced before. It will feel more like a sisterhood. 
  6. What are the benefits of a group program vs working 1-on-1 with Marie?
    I love seeing patients 1-on-1 but, unfortunately, there is only so much that can be covered in a 30 minutes visit. There is nothing linear about autoimmunity and it is quite multi-faceted. This program allows us the time to dive into all of the elements that are important for vibrant health - mindset, diet, lifestyle, toxins, hormones, stress, exercise and much more!
