Patient Care Philosophy
I love what I do, and I love working in an environment that embraces the idea that nutrition is an important part of the treatment process. My specialty is helping my patients feel less pain and improve chronic symptoms through making changes to the diet. The more I see how changing what one eats changes how they feel, the more I learn what a powerful role food plays in the body. And the more I love my job.
