Family, Hobbies and Interests: I have been married for 6 years and share two beautiful children with my husband. We have a rescue cat that we found while out for a run in D.C. and a rescue dog that we found on a beach while on our honeymoon in Puerto Rico. Our house is pretty full these days so hopefully no more animals in need find me any time soon. When I am not working, I love to bake and one day would love to take baking and cake decorating classes. While I do enjoy baking, I would spend all of my time outside if I could. I love hiking, swimming, camping and seeing all the beauty that nature has to offer.
Practice Philosophy: I am a firm believer that in order to best treat a person you have to treat them as a whole person and not just as their illness. I think mental and emotional health and well-being are critical components to overall health and wellness. I am a big advocate of supportive therapies such as pet therapy, music therapy, massage, acupuncture, cognitive feedback therapies, etc., in conjunction with traditional medicine therapies. I think our patients do better when we are able to work together as a comprehensive medical team and ensure that their physical, mental, and emotional health are all supported.
