Tree of Life Health Advocates
My clients—people of all ages who need help navigating the healthcare system—have wide-ranging health conditions and needs. We work face-to-face or remotely via telephone or a videoconference app, such as Skype.
My clients do the hard work of getting better. I help them to stay safe and receive the most current, evidence-based healthcare. Above all, I help individuals to understand their options, patient rights, and legal protections.
Unlike other health advocates, I have more than 30 years of experience in the university, working with community-based health organizations, and at the patient bedside. I have served on medical school faculties and as a bioethicist.
Although specific training is not required to practice health advocacy, I opted to complete a year-long certificate in patient advocacy decades after my doctorate in sociology was awarded.
My clients tell me they appreciate my calm demeanor in times of high stress, ability to clearly explain treatment options, and compassion with patients and families making tough decisions. My personal and professional connections with medical experts throughout California—and beyond—help me to help my clients achieve the best possible outcomes.
Call today to schedule a complimentary, 30-minute consultation. During the call, we will discuss your treatment options and how I might support you, help keep you safe, and reduce your stress.
