A letter to my Patients
past, present & future

I am constantly inspired by the unique encounters I get to share with each one of you, and I am grateful for the meaningful relationship we have and will continue to build. Thank you for allowing me to take care of you, for the multitude of lessons you have taught me, and for allowing me to learn from the most difficult situations of your life. These interactions with you has been my favorite, and most fulfilling part of my work, I am a better doctor and person because of it.

The stories you share with me, the most delicate pieces of your life; how one day you woke up sick and in pain, and suddenly your illness began stealing bits of your life away from you. I have seen you through your worst, and been there for your victories, small and large. You are most brave and courageous when you are most vulnerable.

All of it has been a privilege and humbling experience for me. 

The journey back to health is not easy, it can be long and exhausting; but it is worth it. Together, we will weather the storm until the day you are able to wake up feeling happy, healthy, and hopeful again. Your role in this relationship is as important as mine is, even more. Healing can only be facilitated between two individuals when there is a mutual understanding of responsibility, accountability, dedication, & respect; and through these core values trust is born.

I hope that I am worthy of that trust!

Humanity can be found even in times when we feel least human. The toughest experiences and circumstances have the greatest capacity to transform us.

"When 'I' is replaced by 'we' even illness can become wellness" -Malcolm X

Yours in Sickness & in Health

With Love

My Philosophy

THE TREE OF LIFE
"A timeless symbol of our connections to everything around us, and a powerful reminder that our own happiness and health are inextricably intertwined with the happiness and health of all living things"

The foundation we hope to build our practice upon  


As a symbol, the Tree of Life goes all the way back to ancient times. The oldest known example dates back to about 7000 BC. Characterized by its leaves, branches, & trunk/roots, each represents the idea that all life on earth is connected. The tree of life symbolises life, sustenance, harmony, balance, wisdom, peace, unity, individuality & diversity, abundance, interconnectedness, strength, stability, and rebirth: Out of winter comes spring, and when things are broken down, new things grow.
