I service adult and children treating multiple mental and physical health illnesses. My focus is a bio-psycho-social, holistic, natural approach to health and wellness. I am also a certified health coach. Many desire an alternative to pharmaceuticals to treat their illnesses since they have experienced bad side effects, know someone who has, or knows someone who died while being treated with pharmaceutical agents. Individuals fear potential harmful negative outcomes. This is where I come in. I offer an alternative to pharmaceuticals to treat acute and chronic conditions focusing on genetics, diet, environmental, and social factors.
