“My practice philosophy is to start wherever you are and to use my clinical skills to support you along your path of personal growth in an environment where you feel safe to experience the joys and challenges that come with change. In valuing and respecting the inherent dignity of each person, I tailor all evidence-based therapies to fit your individual needs, goals and temperament.
My practice philosophy is to provide culturally competent and patient centered care that is rooted in compassion and evidence-based practice. I especially like to educate patients on the importance of health promotion and disease prevention, which I believe is key in improving patients’ overall health outcomes.
“I strive to provide quality, evidenced-based care to every patient. My training is centered on a holistic approach, which involves treating the whole person and not just the disease process. With thorough education, I believe each patient can take control of their own health. I will work with you as a member of your team to help you achieve your best possible outcome.”
