Courses and Workshops

Online and live

We help wellness practitioners build LGBTQ2SIA+ inclusive and affirming practices.

From the basics of the queer alphabet to gender-affirming care, we have a range of online self-paced courses, complete with continuing education credits for naturopathic doctors.

Join us for our live workshops to practice skills like gender-inclusive clinical interviewing and zero-awkwardness sexual health conversations.

Who we are

Meet your facilitators

Dr Cyndi Gilbert ND

Dr. Cyndi Gilbert, ND (she/they)

Cyndi is a naturopathic doctor, author, and faculty member at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. Providing care to those who are all too often stigmatized or ignored in wellness circles, Cyndi has a primary clinical focus working with LGBTQ2SIA+ and BIPOC communities, people who use drugs, are homeless, disabled, HIV+, precariously employed, and facing mental health challenges.

Cyndi is a queer/spawn, mad* White Ashkenazi settler and lives in Toronto with her family.

Arlie Millyard

Arlie Millyard, HBSc, CCNM Class of 2020 (she/her)

Arlie went into naturopathic medicine intending to create the queer-positive clinic that she and her friends and loved ones would love. When she got to naturopathic college and found the curriculum sorely lacking, she realized she could make a bigger impact by teaching other wellness professionals how to create inclusive spaces.

Her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and psychology instilled a love for scientific research and a fascination with the way our mental and physical health are one and the same. Arlie is a queer femme and lives with her spouse and their tiny black cat in Toronto.

Thank you for presenting detailed info on many aspects of trans care. Clinical, pharmaceutical and social considerations are covered to enable me to feel much more confident and considerate as a clinician. More importantly Dr Gilbert delivers the information in a thoughtful and non judgemental fashion. Thank you!
