Philosophy

I believe that achieving optimal wellness involves comprehensive assessment, intervention & treatment of the whole person – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental.

I work with the client to prescribe and monitor the therapeutic value of medications and adjust according.

About me

What do you love doing more than anything in the world?
Being on a boat on a lake on a beautiful Michigan summer day.

What is the self-care strategy you use most often?
Taking a bubble bath with a glass of wine and a great magazine.

What was your dream job when you were in elementary school?
To be a nurse and take care of people.

What is your favorite movie of all time?
“A Star is Born” – Kris Kristofferson and Barbara Streisand :)!!

Describe your ideal vacation? Has it happened yet?
Healthy spa on a lake where I would have a full day of exercise, eat healthy delicious meals, get pampered with facials, massages etc and go boating, sailing etc….. I did go to a health spa once in Vermont with a friend…..but all the “pampering” stuff was extra cost and pretty expensive. It wasn’t on a lake, it close to mountains where we did hike and it was beautiful. I did enjoy all the exercise and healthy meals but I prefer water over mountains :).

What is the most delicious meal you can imagine?
I am Polish and was raised very ethnically with a grandmother who came to America when she was 17 yrs old. We lived with my grandparents until I was 2 yrs old and throughout my life (until I went away to college), we ate very traditionally Polish…..so I miss all the “unhealthy stuff” that NOW you only eat on special holidays….(and my cooking doesn’t taste at all like my mother’s or grandmother’s cooking) – Kielbasa, Sauerkraut, Stuffed cabbage, Multiple different types of soups and Pies and Cakes for desserts of course!! 🙂
