As a Naturopathic physician, my role is to listen, to guide, and to counsel regarding lifestyle, nutrition, stress, mental, and emotional wellbeing. The physician-patient relationship ideally, should be a therapeutic relationship that helps facilitate positive change and progress towards optimal health and well being.
Health is a very personal matter and I am honored that you have chosen me to join you on your trek to wellness and health. My intention is to create a healing space, free from judgement. As a physician I strive to be sensitive, true, and genuine.
A typical naturopathic office visit allows 45-90 minutes, which is usually adequate for me to learn about your symptoms and condition, for discussion, counseling, ordering of appropriate labs, and formulating a treatment plan.
If warranted I may recommend additional counsel from a licensed counselor, therapist, psychiatrist, or psychologist.
