She truly believes in an integrative approach to healthcare and will work in conjunction with doctors (MDs/DOs/NDs), chiropractors, physical therapists and other related medical practitioners to give the patient the best care suited for their condition. In her practice, she typically uses a combination of traditional theory in conjunction with a modern, biomedical understanding and approach to treatment and patient care.
“The human body has an innate ability to heal itself when given the right circumstances. It is my job to help identify hidden roadblocks to this natural process and assist my patients to achieve optimal health. I love what I do because it works. By addressing the cause of disease rather than the symptoms, long lasting relief is often achieved.”
