Get to Know Me

I am honored and humbled to be trusted with the care of your children. It can be overwhelming when our children go through illness or struggles. I want my families to know I am here for them and they can reach out to me at any time. We are in this together.

Why I Treat Children

Children are easygoing, innocent and spontaneous. Their joy in small things is contagious. It is beautiful to hold a newborn and experience the wonder of a new life. Watching the unconditional love of a parent or grandparent and sharing in the joy they feel when their child achieves different milestones gives me immense happiness.

What I'm Passionate About

Helping the vulnerable is especially important to me, as is preventing stress and stress-related diseases. I want to help children and families gain confidence in managing their health. I enjoy connecting parents to resources and teaching them how to use natural remedies whenever possible. It is immensely rewarding whenever I am able to guide a family through their challenges. I come from a small town in India and feel grateful my parents instilled kindness and compassion in me from a young age.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I listen carefully to my patients and families and try to understand everything that affects them. Teaming up with parents means we can work together to guide children to be healthy, happy and confident adults. I am very focused on helping children be the healthiest they can be in every way — physically, socially, emotionally — and supporting them to achieve their highest potential in a natural, stress-free way.
