“As a doctor, I make time for us to linger. 

I want to hear your story—about your home and family. This relationship will allow us to find solutions that work. I will not expect you to ‘fix’ yourself, and I will not offer you a ‘magic’ cure. It’s far more practical than that—far more collaborative and lasting.”

“While I revel in medical science, 

I also delight in where science finds its roots in traditional wisdoms. Yoga philosophies and practices weave their way through all my work. I have learned from many great teachers, and now I share my own advanced knowledge with a range of yoga teachers and professionals.”
