I am a former anthropologist turned MD--now using integrative medicine focused on Mind-Body approaches. I work with people not only to understand and improve their physical health and state-of-mind, but perhaps even more importantly, this work helps people to find or refine their bigger story: What really matters to them? What do they want to do with their time and energy? There is always some level of healing to come from this work, no matter how serious the illness or how bad the burn out. Where a person is open to learning, he or she will grow--often in unexpected ways.
