My Approach

I take a balanced, open minded approach to working with you. My approach combines Carl Rogers Humanistic Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, and critical thinking. This approach allows me to be empathetic, non-judgemental, and connect the health dots from a holistic angle.

Unique Framework

I combine my herbal knowledge with my academic background in science, anatomy, physiology, and pathology. I love to learn and am committed to continuing my education and stay current in the field.
