Why did you become a physician/provider?
I wanted to advocate, support and empower others to their fullest potential.

Why did you choose your specialty?
I wanted to advocate and be a voice for those who cannot, while giving back to my community and providing others the same opportunities.

When clients have that ah-ha moment and begin to work towards growth and change for themselves.

What type of care/clinic interests are you most passionate about?
Being a positive support person/adult in someone's life.

What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients?
Empathetic, understanding, supportive and advocate 

What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?
My sessions will always be a safe, judgment-free zone where clients can come to share their thoughts, feelings and be met with support.
