"Healing is an integral part of one's life journey and is a process that lasts a lifetime. Prevention is key in modern society, and knowing I can help people and bring empowerment to them, while enabling them to engage in a healthy balanced life is the most rewarding and fulfilling part of being a naturopathic doctor. My true role as a practitioner is to teach someone to heal themselves, and to provide guidance on their journey to health and wellness, in any way which they desire. Along with that, it is my duty to help patients discover themselves, to help them identify their deeper problems so that they can become more developed, balanced, and ultimately survive harmoniously in accordance with the universe. I am able to provide encouragement, education, motivation and hopefully inspiration to each and every patient that walks through my door to take control of their health, to live the most fulfilled and optimal existence possible."
