My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Sitting face-to-face with someone, listening to what really matters to them, I am wondering, “What has this person been through, what are they feeling right now, what can improve their quality of life right now, and how can they be prepared if things go very wrong in the future?” Sitting face-to-face with someone is a beautiful thing. The privilege of being part of those moments is all the motivation I need to do the very best I can, every time. It is an honor to be part of this great profession. My patients have taught me well, and I pass it on.
