  • It sees each person as a whole and unique human being rather than as a disease.
  • It recognizes that each person has a natural capacity for well being. This capacity can be called upon and nurtured when facing the daily stresses of modern life and when confronting the more extreme challenges of illness and crisis.
  • It nourishes health on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual.
  • It acknowledges that health is created within the context of a person’s life and that relationships, community, work, financial circumstances, and that a sense of connection or isolation, joy or lack of fulfillment, can either enhance health or contribute to illness.
  • It is a process of partnership in which the patient is the expert on her/his body, and the provider serves the patient with compassion and excellence.
  • Is truly integrative, combining the best of conventional modern medicine and “alternative” medicine.

  • “Finding Dr. Amy was a lifesaver for me! … I was suffering from postpartum depression and didn’t know where to turn. Her compassion, kindness, and openness made me feel comfortable from the start…. She was a partner working with me, honoring my own intuition. I found this to be a very different approach from most physicians and VERY effective.”
