“ I saw this movie, How Do You Know?, and it has this amazing line in it...'We are all just one small adjustment away from the life we want,' and it's true! I believe people should be treated as a whole, not as a collection of parts. I use my experiences and knowledge of various fields of study to search for the underlying cause of the symptoms and to help facilitate healing.“ -Lisa Dittman MA, LPC, NCC
