I strive to appreciate the wholeness of each individual. This means seeking to view a person from a biological, psychological, social and spiritual perspective. My goal is to partner with each patient to prevent or heal disease using the least invasive and most collaborative path. I also take a special interest in providing affirming and supportive care to the LGBTQ+ community, including initiating and continuing gender-affirming hormone therapy, PrEP and HIV management. How I stay healthy and happy; I love to garden, swim, and walk my dogs.
