My life’s work is my passion to change the way we practice medicine.
I saw firsthand how integrative medicine extended my mother’s life in her battle with stage-4 lung cancer and also in my father’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. With integrative medicine, the patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process. The patient takes responsibility and is at the center of his/her own healing. Integrative medicine combines both conventional and alternative modalities that help to facilitate the body’s innate healing response.
In my health coaching practice, I use motivational interviewing skills, and together, we take an integrative approach and focus on 7 core areas of health: Nutrition, Movement, Relationships, Spirituality, Sleep, Resilience, Environment.
Coaching is a growth-promoting relationship, which elicits internal motivation and facilitates transformation through visioning, goal setting, and accountability. Working together, you can make powerful lifestyle changes. My goal is to help empower you to discover the possibilities and live the life you desire—and deserve!
