Dr. Scarlett Cooper is a licensed naturopathic doctor and trained nutritionist in the province of British Columbia. With a strong background in nutrition, Dr. Cooper works with patients to build a foundation for health, complementing dietary and lifestyle approaches with additional naturopathic treatments. Dr. Cooper enjoys working with all patients who are interested in improving their health; she has a general family practice with particular interest in pediatric care, digestive and skin conditions, stress, and weight management.
Growing up on Saltspring Island in a family with an appreciation for wholesome diet and natural medicine inspired Dr. Cooper to study nutrition at the University of British Columbia. When health concerns encouraged her to seek naturopathic treatment and addressing the root cause resulted in a true cure, she felt motivatedby her doctor’s holistic approach. After earning a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Nutritional Sciences at UBC, she went on to graduate from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario and returned home to the West Coast to pursue a rewarding career in naturopathic medicine.
While at CCNM, Dr. Cooper completed a one year clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto, including the Pediatrics Specialty Shift; a four month externship at the Oakville Naturopathic Clinic; and a ten day naturopathic medical brigade with Natural Doctors International in Ometepe, Nicaragua. She was thrilled to have the opportunity to provide naturopathic care to these communities while gaining invaluable experience which informs her ongoing practice.
Born and raised on the West Coast, Scarlett nourishes her roots with as much time spent outdoors as rainy Vancouver will allow. She enjoys running, bicycling and hiking, as well as dancing, yoga, writing, spending time with family and friends, and having endless adventures in the kitchen.
