My passion for providing learning that empowers people to make quality life decisions. This passion shows up in many ways - competent, caring clinician, an international educator and a leading advocate for integrative and lifestyle medicine in the US and abroad.
A passionate and enthusiastic educator, I have international teaching experience - as a clinician, lecturer/course director and with radio & TV appearances. Audiences have included patients and health care providers (physicians, residents, nurses, allied health providers, complementary health providers) and community members.
My areas of special expertise include: lifestyle medicine, therapeutic movement, use of meditation and integrative medicine for care of women, elders and people with chronic pain.
My work combines a researcher’s brain knowledge of medical and organizational systems and the experience in western science with a healer’s heart. By blending western science with traditional wisdom, I create individualized solutions for my clients and the organizations I work with.
