Robert has also attended Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, where he majored in contemplative psychology and refined his skills and abilities in various forms of alternative wellness, including five elements acupuncture, herbal medicine, and Buddhist psychology.
Robert is passionate about the impact of education on wellness goals. Through community workshops in Baltimore and the DC metro area, he shares his knowledge and skills to empower individuals to take charge of their own health, thereby creating positive change in their lives and—through a ripple effect—the lives of others.
Robert was drawn to alternative medicine through nature. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoys camping, hiking, climbing, cycling, canoeing and other outdoor activities. This intimate connection with the natural world informs Robert’s style in the treatment room, where he offers patients opportunities to rediscover their own bodies’ inner wisdom in the way that nature intended.
