Dr. Krause is most passionate in treating patients holistically. This treatment approach implies that the health of the mind requires the health of the body. Dr. Krause is unique in that she addresses both the physical and mental health issues that may be contributing to a patient's particular symptom. At times, the "mental" symptom(s) experienced may be best addressed by correcting a mineral or nutrient deficiency, hormonal imbalance, or gastrointestinal problem. Occassionally, physical complaints may be alleviated by addressing hidden stress, anxiety, or depression: this is Dr. Krause's passion; treating the mind and body as an INTERCONNECTED system. Each patient deserves to be treated as more than a symptom, but rather as a whole person. Treatment goals will seek to not only enhance your overall health, both physcial and mental health, but to enhance your uique strengths and gifts.
Dr. Krause's services include a thorough evaluation, medication management, patient education and may serve as a complement to a patient’s current treatment team. In addition, your phsycial health issues and medications will be evaluated in order to determine if they may be contributing to the symptoms you are experienceing. Together, we will create a treatment plan to achieve your optimal health and restore your vitality for life.
