"Using a naturopathic model my approach to practicing medicine is simply to connect with my patients, to listen and care for them, and to facilitate healing through growth, awareness of self (including mind body and spirit,) and creating a foundation for health and wellness. I am a firm believer in the doctor-patient therapeutic relationship and feel that establishing a genuine connection is a vital part of the synergy allowing healing to occur." She adds, "Essentially, as a physician, I am a source of education and support for my patients and it is my intention to work together to find the balance of what will resonate with each of them as they journey down their path of healing and wellness."
