Favorite Thing About My Profession:
Opportunity to share with and help empower patients and families, with regard to total mind/body health care and wellness. I enjoy working with patients across the lifespan. It is a privilege to care for patient & family health care needs. I view each patient as an individual and seek to integrate primary care with mental health care in all.
Open-Minded, Compassionate, Empathic & Holistic. I Believe in the importance of practicing Integrative Health Care and viewing the patient as a "whole" person, and viewing individuals & groups in a social/family systems framework. I view healthcare as a team effort and seek to help the patient manage their healthcare together in a collaborative manner.
