Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

I use a holistic approach, where I meet the patient where they are currently and try to help them to progress further.

I enjoy doing yoga and meditating and participating in physical activities such as swimming and hiking. As well as reading poetry and literature, being out in nature, photography, art and writing.
