To all my previous, present, and future friends, patients and colleagues…
Wow, what an amazing summer and fall it has been so far! Who could have imagined, six months ago, all the changes we’ve underwent so far this season? Maybe I did. However, when imagination turns into action it really is amazing, scary, and truly beautiful.
Growth, here we come.
Those that already came to see me, I like to say, “Thank You.” I have learned so much from you. Most of you know that I really gave hundred percent and that I really care. However, in the back of my mind, I was always asking, “Could I be doing more?” Of course I could.
So this summer, I took a step back re-evaluated, re-organized, and re-grouped. I made a list of things I thought I could do to serve all of you better. And slowly, I’ve checked off (most) of this list. Personally, I made sure that I was mindful of my health including resting, exercise good nutrition, telling people that I missed and loved that I truly love them, and made note of my goals personally and professionally in the long-term. Professionally, I thought about my ideal, most effective office environment, the incredible patients I have been fortunate to reach, and the incredible patients and clients I’m going to reach the future. The future that begins now.
I love my profession, and think I’m truly blessed to have found it. I think it’s a perfect blend between science and intuition. I swing back and forth on my focus between these two components regularly. This summer I chose to focus on both. Much to my (and your) benefit I completed certifications in functional medicine as well as hypnotherapy. The mind-body connection simply cannot be underestimated. I will always stand by the statement that the foundation always lies with good nutrition. However, the longer I practice I realize that we can work on the foundation, we can work on the body, but if we don’t work on that mind it truly can create a roadblock. A roadblock that nobody wants to work on at first, but really after so much chronic illness, sometimes we just have to walk right up to it and move the thing. I’m not saying you have to now, but when you’re ready, I want to make sure that myself or my team has the knowledge and experience to do it. This is what the summer has been all about.
So now I’m on the last leg of my summer/fall of educational adventures. I’m going on some travels overseas and doing some further research while away. I am fortunate to have met a handful of medical professionals that treat chronic (sometimes misdiagnosed) pain, chronic illness, midwife/childbirth experts, yoga instructors, life coaches, and even some immunologists that can talk me endlessly about their passion, (and mine too!) Reproductive Immunology.
So when I return in two weeks, I hope you come to you a much improved practitioner, giving even more than 100% , if possible.
So here we go…a new office, new contact information, a new website, a new improved me, and a new improved you. Together we can do this!
Sincerely your friend, acupuncturist, herbalist, doctor of medicine, thinker, listener, advisor and much more,
