Brooke’s Philosophy of Medicine

Brooke’s diverse experience informs her practice philosophy. She believes that honoring each individual’s unique lived experience nurtures our innate capacity for optimal wellness of body, mind, and spirit. Her approach is relational and collaborative; she seeks to partner with clients to develop a treatment plan that comprehensively addresses both short and long-term needs and goals, based upon an understanding of their history, emotional framework, environment, lifestyle, and physical health.
