About My Practice


My private practice has changed through the years to address modern ailments that I am seeing with my patients. I always approach all patients with the beautiful lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I also run genetic testing for preventative measures to help me make more accurate (alongside with my education and experience) in the areas of nutrition, supplementation and cannabis. I help patients a lot with mindset as I believe that our thoughts and how we name our experiences create our habits and reality with then inform the place we live our lives from. It’s important to know ourselves as Doctors who we can help and who we cannot. We must understand the benefits and limitations of our field and have an ability to always see our patients clearly in order to discern the best approach for them in the moment. Below are some examples of what I work with in my private practice. I am always open to being contacted for new patients, interviews and collaborations.
