About the author
Sonya was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts, English major degree. After giving birth to her second child, Sonya had allergies and fatigue so severe that she was no longer able to care for her young children properly. The mainstream medical system offered her no real solutions, so as a last resort, Sonya tried homeopathy, and was finally able to fully 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 in 2009 after 4 years of study at the Vancouver of Homeopathic Academy. Currently, Sonya practices classical homeopathy in her busy award-winning private clinic, Little Mountain Homeopathy.
Sonya is currently a board member of the BC Society of Homeopaths. She was a past registered member of the Canadian Society of Homeopaths, Nupath (National United Professional Association for Homeopaths in Canada), the Canadian Consumer’s Centre for Homeopathy and the Health Action Network.
Sonya is passionate about educating the public about homeopathy, and has published numerous educational articles in various publications, including Natural News, Homeopathy Today, and the Georgia Straight. She was a guest on JoyTV’s “P3: People, Places, Perspectives.” The latest research and case studies about how homeopathy can help many acute and chronic illnesses can be found on the many pages and posts on her website. For 2 years running, her clinic Little Mountain homeopathy was the winner of the Consumer Choice award. Sonya was named one of the top 7 homeopaths in Vancouver by Crowd Wellness and was ranked at the top of the homeopathy category in Vancouver by Yocale.
For the interest and use of professional homeopaths, Sonya is currently involved in leading a series of trituration provings of local substances which will lead to the publication of this, her first book.
