“I approach treatment from a biopsychosocial perspective because I believe we are integrated beings. Our physical and psychological health are knit together and when either one is out of balance, the other can also move out of balance. The context or situation can also contribute to that imbalance. As a health psychologist, I work with patients to help them regain balance and move toward healing.”
