Care Philosophy

Philosophy of Care:   I believe we need to reconsider our cultural myths revering stoicism and lessen stigmas associated with psychiatric care as these myths and stigmas inevitably impede patients' paths toward optimal health and balance in their lives.  As an alternative I believe patients and providers can learn to honor their emotions and moments of vulnerability and thus better understand how our emotional wellbeing impacts our physical wellbeing.  Equipped with this knowledge, along with ongoing support and encouragement, we all can more effectively make changes to live healthier and fuller lives.

In My Own Words

Why I Became a Medical Provider:  My role as a provider is to stimulate patients to become more actively engaged in their own health and self-care.  I am interested in helping patients better understand themselves and how their psychological wellbeing impacts their physical wellbeing.  Personal Interests and Hobbies:  I love yoga and I try to incorporate music, dance, and play in my life as often as possible. Community Involvement:  I aspire to support other practitioners trying to engage patients to make healthier lifestyle choices.  With a heightened awareness and understanding of our bodies and health, I believe we can change our expectations of our healthcare system to be more focused on prevention, rather than disease-focused and crisis-oriented.
