We Opened a Boutique Satellite Location!
(Don’t worry the Lakeside location isn’t going anywhere)

get the most out of your membership

Back in 2016, when I started Direct Osteopathic Primary Care, I was teaching at Rocky Vista University, and every day I drove to Parker to teach, I couldn't help but think about having a second location there. Fast forward to today, and I'm thrilled to announce that the day has finally arrived!

As many of you know, I moved to the countryside of the eastern plains in April 2022. Given the proximity to Denver, our move allowed me to keep my old life just the way it was. I may drive more, but every day when I return home and look at the view of the mountains, see antelope or a hawk flying, my cup is filled back up. Last year, in doing some practice management and analyzing our member population, I realized that about 20% of our members currently live closer to Parker than to Lakeside! Therefore, starting this year, I now have a cute little room in a counseling office on Main Street in downtown Parker for part time office visits closer to home.

This space allows for the quietude and reflection that deepens my osteopathic treatments. There are backcountry roads and three stop signs between my home and the space. Anyone who does or receives bodywork knows that this facilitates the calm my nervous system needs to do a great treatment and build my own health as well as yours. 

Now, you might be wondering if I'll eventually be only in Parker and close Lakeside. The answer is no! The Lakeside office is a long-time labor of love, and the community and support I receive there are precious to me. The Parker office will be more intimate, with no staff or labs, focusing on basic physical exams, minimal testing and, my favorite, face to face visits to chat about your health challenges and goals. My plan is to start with a few Tuesday mornings a month and gradually transition to one full day a week.

Rest assured, the Lakeside office will continue, and I'll be there as long as our building stands. I couldn't leave, especially with our famous local muralist, Jaime Molina’s painting permanently on the wall! For those unfamiliar with his work, check out this Denver Post article: [Link to the article].

I feel blessed to be an osteopathic family physician, practicing from my heart and living in alignment with my goals and values. With the stress of a global pandemic, the aftermath and my own car accident last year, I have certainly re-learned the importance of tending to my own well-being. The small expansion to Parker fills my cup back up. Thank you for your patience and support and for those close to Parker, I look forward to seeing you in my new space!

To schedule with me in Parker or Lakeside, simply text the office or send a secure message in the portal with your preferred time, day and appointment requests.
