Dr. McLean empowers her patients and draws out their own knowledge and wisdom about what it is they need to know to heal themselves. She focuses on what imbalances need to be corrected and what we can do to nudge the body to shift into its own unique healing mode.  Each individual is unique and has the ability to heal themselves. In order to understand these imbalances, we must develop a holistic relationship with our patient’s mind, body, emotions and spirit.
