Dr. Sample believes our bodies have a natural ability to heal themselves in many instances, but stress interferes with both mental and physical healing. “I work from a holistic perspective, which focuses on balancing the relationship between your mind, body and emotions. I believe in using a collaborative approach to work together toward the most effective way for you to implement change. Our time together will focus on using strengths you already have in an effort to heal yourself.”
