Why I Work at ICHS:
I am deeply aligned with the ICHS founding mission to provide culturally sensitive health care to a diverse population from around the world along with a commitment to social justice and patient advocacy.
Patient Care Philosophy:
My philosophy of practice is steeped in an Integrative Medicine approach with each person being an active partner in their own healing process. To support that healing, I offer conventional medicine; functional medicine; herbal medicine; mind/body practices (embodied movement practices, yoga, meditation and stress-reduction techniques) and nutrition support – with food as medicine. It is my job as a health care provider to remind my patients to trust the innate wisdom of their body to heal and support them along the way.
Interesting Note about myself:
I enjoy travelling and immersing myself in other cultures. I am passionate about growing my own food, eating local, and cooking farm to fork meals. As a dancer, I often offer “dance as a prescription” and it never ceases to amaze me to see how movement and dance can help people heal and transform their lives.
