First and foremost, the foundation of my practice is kindness.
I think that kindness, compassion, concern, and empathy all promote healing. (and of course, make the world a much happier place for everyone!) I see each of my patients as a unique individual, with their own unique path in life. I try to help each person to live a happy and healthy life.
The other foundation of my practice is knowledge. I continually read medical and psychiatric journals and attend conferences to learn the latest evidence-based medicine. I work to give the highest level of medical and counseling knowledge to my patients. I want my patients to be an active participant in their care. Therefore, I work hard to educate my patients so each person has the knowledge to be an active participant.
