Welcome to our office in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, located in the heart of Boulder county.
Practicing medicine is one of the things I do best. I love it. My whole life I have felt called to be a doctor and through dedication and determination that dream came true. Along with relishing the love and support of family and friends, practicing medicine enables me to create a lifetime of fun and great adventure.
Throughout my years in practice, I have maintained a true osteopathic philosophical approach to patient care:
- The patient is a whole unit; comprised of the body, mind, and spirit.
- The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.
- Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated. The anatomy and physiology work intricately together aligned with the mind, body, spirit.
- Treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.
These Osteopathic principles created the foundation upon which the doctor/patient relationship builds. I feel privileged and honored to have a front row seat on life with my patients, as they invite me into their most intimate and vulnerable moments as we discuss their lives, their health, their medical care, their relationships, their hopes and their dreams. I feel so grateful that my patients trust me in this fashion.
