Philosophy of Care

Philosophy of Care: 

Every person has their own unique perspective and priorities regarding their own health.  The most important piece of the work I do as a healer is to listen to each person with compassion and tailor my medical advice to their specific priorities.  I strive to promote the wellness of the whole person. I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and am grateful to be a part of such intimate moments in their lives.  I especially enjoy being present for the birth of babies!
