  • 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.
