Holistic, patient-centered care is the guiding philosophy of my practice. For 20 years, I have treated patients of all ages and conditions to help them eliminate pain, feel healthier, and become stronger and more functional in every aspect of their lives. I don’t just treat a symptom in isolation. I work with my patients to address every aspect of their lifestyle to achieve comprehensive, lasting well-being through therapeutic treatment and education. I work with my patients to address posture, working habits, ergonomics, diet, exercise, and emotional health, always with the belief that getting better is a partnership between my patient and myself.
My commitment to provide comprehensive care motivates me to do many hours of ongoing advanced training in multiple chiropractic techniques, including sports medicine, pregnancy and pediatric care, care for the elderly and those with chronic illness, severe back strain and injury, headaches, and Functional Medicine. My office provides the best in technology, from tractioning tables to computerized adjusting instruments. I also provide hands-on manual therapy to many of my patients. I am a believer in personalized care, assessing what feels right and is most effective for each individual and sharing that information to help educate my patients about what I am doing and how we can optimize treatment together.
Helping people heal and live with greater well-being is not just my job; it is my life’s work and my passion. I come from a family of doctors, and my father always told me that to succeed in practice I needed to do my best with each patient and that from there everything else would follow. My father’s words, as well as his spirit, are with me every day, and I am committed to putting his advice into practice each time I step into the treatment room with a patient.
I’ve been practicing on Bainbridge Island for twenty years and I am expanding Island Health & Chiropractic to include an office in Sequim.
