My Treatment Methods
Welcome, and I'm glad you are here.
My general approach to the treatment is based on a biopsychosocial model. Each illness has three influencing factors that are triggering or perpetuating the symptoms:
Biological factors include genetics, injury, or family history.
Psychological factors include anxiety, depression, or trauma.
Social factors include family dynamics, peers, school, or the environment.
I believe in knowledge = power. That's why I spend a lot of time educating my patients about their medical condition and its impact on their mind and body. I also help them build solid skills to become their own problem solvers for their condition.
My biggest reward for working with my patients is when they tell me they've "got this."
I've witnessed many patients getting better and smiling again, and so can you.
