Nurse Practitioner & Psychotherapist

Julia Petrakis is a dedicated online healthcare services Nurse Practitioner with a focus on nutrition, fitness, and well-being. She completed her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at Western University in 2010 and her primary healthcare nurse practitioner program in 2018. Her medical background also includes a specialization in infectious diseases like HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis.

Starting in Paediatrics, Julia transitioned to a trauma unit, spending nearly a decade there before focusing on primary and women’s care as a nurse practitioner. Her own experiences with an autoimmune disease and infertility intensified her commitment to holistic women’s care.

After becoming a mother, Julia noticed a gap in postpartum care. She’s dedicated to filling this gap by offering comprehensive, holistic care beyond a single postpartum check.
