To Catalyze Change
I love helping people challenge their assumptions, undo the nocebo effect, and optimize their daily habits so they can take agency over their autopilot and change their lives for the better.
From health issues to life choices, I believe that many of our biggest problems in life come down to only a few small tweaks, tucked away in the autopilot routines that we perform every day, just beyond our notice.
My treatment philosophy emphasizes sustainable lifestyle habit formation, supplement minimalism, and respect for patient autonomy.

HOW I PRACTICE
The Dr. Chris Approach
Make lifestyle changes into small, sustainable habits,
rather than making sweeping changes that don't last
Focus on nutrition through ongoing dietary choices,
only using supplements when necessary
Honest, Direct Communication
Express your fears, concerns, and doubts freely so we can address them together,
rather than just pushing through a care plan that you don't believe in.
Respect for Patient Autonomy
Never feel obligated to follow your doctor's advice
if you fundamentally disagree with it.
Fluidity of Symptoms
Even the most stuck, chronic symptom can disappear with a light touch in the right direction,
no matter how small it may seem.
Kill Your Nocebos
Don't ruin a good result with negative expectations.
Build a Care Team
Seek like-minded healthcare professionals
who can collaborate together to help you reach your goals.
