2011 Brings New Healing Space and Joyful Collaborations

After several months’ planning, I’ve just moved my office to a new location:  joining with Martha Grout MD, MD(H) and her team at Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine,  still  in Scottsdale, Arizona.

It’s the sort of collaboration I’ve longed for — where together we can help people maintain health through good nutrition and lifestyle, and can use nontoxic methods of healing when people are sick.   The goal is bringing together multiple ways of healing for multiple kinds of conditions, as even Dr. Hahnemann talked about “obstacles to cure”  including poor diet, toxic living situations, and behavioral problems which could impair responses to homeopathic medicines.

Expert in functional medicine, nutrition, and acupuncture, Dr. Grout has built a completely “green” (nontoxic) healing space that brings in all kinds of light — including through the team of practitioners she’s gathered.  For instance, psychologist Steven Swerdfeger PhD offers guided imagery and hypnosis, useful in many types of chronic pain and other symptoms. Also, cognitive scientist and educator Stephanie Reese PhD offers the Brain Advantage program, a non-drug intervention helpful in ADHD, memory issues, and depression.  Neurofeedback, colonic therapy, nutrient infusions, and specialized treatments for Lyme disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and cancer are also available.

The healing space is fragrance-free, meaning that people entering are asked not to wear colognes, scented hair products, or other aromatic substances so that environmentally sensitive patients can be comfortably treated also.

I’ll continue offering consultations in classical homeopathy for patients with anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and stress-related health conditions.  My practice includes individual psychotherapy as needed, as well as mentoring and coaching for physician colleagues seeking to strengthen resilience and fulfillment in their own lives and work.  I use pharmaceutical  medications only rarely — mostly on the road to tapering or discontinuation as appropriate and safe for each patient.

It’s heartening for me to work alongside Dr. Grout, as we both hear and value our patients’ “story-beneath-the-story.”   This allows each person’s unique healing process to unfold, even though we approach care in different ways.

Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine is on the northwest corner of Raintree Drive and Thompson Peak Parkway:  9328 E. Raintree Drive, Scottsdale AZ 85260. My office phone number remains the same: 480-656-9218.
