Years of clinical experience in the field of complementary and alternative medicine have made it apparent that there is a gap in healthcare for the LGBTQ+ community and minority groups in general. As a doctor of minority background, it is a goal to help bridge this gap by collaborating with outreach programs, offering educational talks to the community, and providing a safe and inclusive space for patients of all backgrounds to receive individualized care. Part of my continuing education involves training in culturally and linguistically appropriate services and other e-learning provided by the Center of Excellence LGBTQ+ Behavioral Health Equity.
In practice as a chiropractor and naturopathic doctor, I am able to take the time to get to know patients’ backgrounds, identities, and current circumstances in order to create a collaborative team and develop the most suitable plan of care. The services I provide also include acupuncture, nutritional counseling, lifestyle modification, and support for overall wellness. To provide the best care possible, visits with patients are one-on-one from beginning to end and the duration is tailored to the patient’s needs.
