My Approach to Helping

I am an integrative primary care physician and mental health counselor, with continued studies in Ayurveda. I believe in a holistic approach to brain health; it is impossible to treat one part and expect lasting progress or change. The dual licensure gives me an eclectic set of tools. My mental health counseling background provided me with solid skills in psychotherapy (talk therapy), CBT, DBT, TF-CBT, existentialism, motivational interviewing, and bibliotherapy (just to name a few) Naturopathic medicine has allowed me an enriching way to order diagnostic tests (bloodwork, imaging, etc.), specialty tests (heavy metals, hormones, neurotransmitters, etc.), treat chronic pain, manage medication, and understand the emerging field of nutritional psychiatry. Further, my certification as a Biofeedback Therapist has given me the ability to teach a patient how to control the nervous system, thereby, decreasing stressful symptoms, including those created by traumatic events.

Wholistic well-being is a process, a continuing evolution of self. Progress, not perfection, is the goal. My approach is client-centered and respectful. Thank you!
