  • Philosophy of Care

    I emphasize patients' involvement in determining goals of treatment that are meaningful to them and the nature of their care. I also include holistic and traditional interventions based on the patient's desires. The care assessment is analyzed through the biopsychosocial model, meaning biological, psychological, and social factors are evaluated to determine appropriate treatment interventions and care. My psychotherapy interventions in primary care focus on health-related brief interventions utilizing the Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Model.

The proposed solution didn't work so she has told me to call whenever I need help. So I will call her Monday (tomorrow) and see what might be done to best help my situation.
