About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

I developed empathy at a young age for both the young and old.

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

I believe that people are resilient by nature but don't always realize it due to effects of nature, nurture and life experiences. I enjoy helping individuals and families maximize their strengths and restore hope.

How do you connect with your patients?

I connect through active empathic listening and validating, and take pride in providing a safe and trusting environment, conducive for change. I engage well with my patients.

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

I enjoy spending time with my husband, my children and my dogs, relaxing on my deck with a book, cooking and crocheting. I hope to establish an exercise routine to support good health and well-being. This is a personal goal.

What is your advice for your patients?

I don't generally give advice to my patients. I help them to sort out their problems and concerns and find their own answers. I am interactive and give feedback.
