Our Team

We are a group of professionals that celebrates the uniqueness of each individual. We come from different disciplinary backgrounds including medicine, nursing, nutrition, counseling, psychology, education, and speech/language and work together to bring out the best in each patient we see.
 
Every member of our team has significant experience within their own discipline, a philosophy that embraces individual differences, and strong communication skills. Each member of the team has participated in The Being Well Professional Training Program to help them develop a core set of assessment and treatment skills.
 
Team members share their expertise with other members of the team (role release) and acquire skills from other members of the team (role exchange). This allows each member of the team to move beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and to function as a "transdisciplinary case coordinator" for a group of patients. As a result, our patients get the benefits of a multidisciplinary team's expertise without having to see directly each member of the team. When needed, the refined skills of another team member can be accessed through a consultation visit. This close-knit teamwork makes our services comprehensive, yet highly cost effective and efficient.
 
Our transdisciplinary approach provides a strong backbone for The Being Well Program, but we feel our greatest team asset is also its most important member: our patients.

Kudos From Our Colleagues

Observing the team members present the individual case background information and interact reminds us that collaboration and cooperation are effective and efficient ways to gather, share and interpret data, and usually result in benefits to the client and the evaluator. We have a renewed appreciation for the breadth and depth of the evaluation process and the mission of [The Being Well Center].

Yours sincerely, View All
