Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Patients should choose me instead of another provider because of the following; - I believe each one of us has a resilient capacity to heal, if given the right support and environment. - My core values include truth, compassion, and teaching. - If I don’t initially have an answer I will go above and beyond to support, educate & find tools to help. - I deeply care & listen to what the patients needs are. - I enjoy working together with the patient to create plans that they can sustain and build; empowering patients towards change. - I have had experience and success with many concerns - I have right tools such as patience, to support them while they are taking the steps to make changes in their health

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am proud of supporting my patients (that initially struggled), and believing in them when no one else would. Finally seeing them reach their health goals! I am proud of being strong enough to set parameter/rules yet gentle enough to bend when they had a bad month, and need to start all over again. I am proud of helping to move blocks (negative mindsets) of: “oh its going to be so hard, I can’t’ do this” to “Okay I’ll do it as best as I can” I am proud of the success I have had with patients that had been told by their doctors – “you’ll be on meds for life.” I am proud of helping their bodies use their innate wisdom to heal, via personalized nutrition and supplementation. I am proud of teaching patients that optimal health ( high energy/ vitality) does not have to be a struggle.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating cases that have failed before with other doctors. These are cases where the patient has not felt heard, and has literally been given medications with no other solutions for care. Why? I like being a fountain of hope, backed by exploration & patience need to discover/ treat the root cause of their concern. I enjoy working with patients that are tired of taking the easy route. Why? Patients are keen to learn about their bodies, and positive shifts occur dramatically in these patients. I enjoy working with patients that feel they have no one who cares for them. Why? I get to share genuine concern for them and help them at each stage of their healing.
