Integration
– Interpersonal Neurobiology

My Expertise & Philosophy

The central process for everyone is based on the idea that there exists a state of harmony we can cultivate between our unique nature and our day-to-day lifestyle, which ultimately leads to not just being symptom free, but thriving in this life.

What to expect

My work is dedicated to helping people achieve mental, emotional and spiritual well being. In our first appointment we will create a holistic formulation and a treatment plan that is tailored to each person’s unique needs, discussing all possible natural approaches and lifestyle change before considering medication.

To be most effective I believe my role as a physician is to build a trusting relationship that puts my patient at the center of all treatment decisions, fully informed and empowered to decide what they need best. My utmost priority is to help my patients get practical stability back in their lives, and to feel empowered to decide what they need best. I ultimately believe people have the capacity to be self reliant, recover and heal completely.

I am trained to work with adults, children and adolescents.
