Joan is a member of the Faculty.
Write to Joan.
Joan’s interest in natural medicine began in the 70’s when she explored herbology as an alternative for treating various conditions. From there she made a quick leap to homeopathy after experiencing personal healing while being treated for the effects of an injury. With an undergrad degree in Psychology and Teacher Education, and a Masters of Science in Health, she was compelled to pursue further education in homeopathy. After a few serendipitous occurents she was introduced to Heilkunst – Samuel Hahnemann’s complete system of medicine, which includes homeopathy. Always a seeker of Truth, she decided to participate in Heilkunst as a patient first and experienced cure of a long standing ailment. Her cat, Nellie, also underwent treatment and showed a remarkable improvement in health and temperament. Thus Joan began the three-year program of advanced studies at the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst in Ottawa. After successfully completing the DHHP program, she continued with the DAHH program in order to be able to treat animals too.
Joan’s Heilkunst practice and office is centrally located in Toronto in The Annex Center. To set up an appointment with her please call or email Joan.

Aleksandra is a member of the Faculty.
Write to Aleksandra.
Aleksandra was born and raised in the former Yugoslavia. She left her country following her graduation from The University of Architecture in Belgrade.
Facing health challenges along with the harshness and limitations of conventional medicine, she was forced to look for a path of no harm. At first she turned to Reiki and Craniosacral therapy, and she still offers those treatments to patients within the broader perspective of Heilkunst. But Heilkunst was the ultimate answer, clearly defined through principles and natural laws.
Aleksandra is a graduate of Hahnemann College for Heilkunst and is a member of the International Heilkunst Association. Her practice welcomes all species, either in person or through phone consultations.

Write to Leslie.
Natural animal care is Leslie’s passion. Even before she became involved in animal rescue for dogs and cats, and prior to establishing her country homestead with goats, rabbits, and ducks, Leslie had begun the journey toward finding more gentle, yet effective management and healing methods for her own animals. These included homeopathy, acupuncture, herbs, nutrition and supplements. She discovered that the vast array of options, while usually helpful, were not organized around any rational guiding principles, and it had become a matter of trial & sometimes error before significant improvements were made. In Heilkunst Leslie discovered a principled method for understanding health, disease, healing and curing for our animal companions.
In addition to completing her DAHH (Diploma in Animal Heilkunst & Homeopathy), Leslie has a BA in Biology/ Education and MSW (Master of Social Work). She maintains a private holistic psychotherapy practice in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. Her general practice encompasses resilience based care for adults & families, and she has a special interest in assisting human-animal working partners such as those involved in search & rescue or animal assisted therapy. Leslie is concurrently working toward completing EMDR Certification and becoming a Certified Bach Flower practitioner to further her education.
Leslie, her loving and patient husband Philip, and their evolving menagerie of dogs, cats, goats, birds, fish and frogs live in the hills of West Virginia, far enough into the peaceful countryside to enjoy nature’s beauty, yet close enough to Washington DC to partake of the abundance of cultural offerings when life becomes too quiet. Companion and working animal consultations are usually by phone. Home/barn/farm visits can be accommodated in the Mid-Atlantic area. Certified working/therapy animals can be seen in the Martinsburg, WV office.
