Are you feeling tired, can't keep up with your daily routine, emotional for no reason, dealing with overwhelming stress? You may be struggling with untreated medical symptoms. These symptoms can be treated with the guidance of a physician. "Let's talk and see what happens." I hope to keep things as open as possible, because not every patient will present with a textbook case of issues. I strive to find a way to connect with each patient in a way that respects their autonomy and dignity.
