Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shannon "I work from the philosophy that we are all born whole and that treatment seeks to return us to that state of innate health and well-being. I try to avoid burdening people with needless labels and pessimism. My style is positive, supportive and encouraging. I do use psychiatric medications but try to do so cautiously to avoid risk and needless side effects. I work in a large holistic group practice called Wholeness Center where we focus on collaboration with you and with each other."
