Willow Healing Center

Hey everyone – after a long and thoughtful process, I have left my cozy little job with all the security one needs (financially) to follow my integrity.  4 weeks ago, Willow Healing Center had its grand opening in Woodland Hills, California.

I believe in a few things when it comes to people and medicine:

We (humans) are complex.  We are physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological beings.  I believe that treating just the physical being is only part of the process…it would be like fixing a car and forgetting about the gas.

I have found that not only is the system in which we receive health care broken, but the guise in which doctors treat is severely broken as well.  I know.  My patient panel was over 3,000 patients and I was on the proverbial hamster wheel spinning away daily as patients came in and out of my office flustered and disappointed with their treatment (for the most part).  I was always one to spend the time needed with my patients but the 20 patients per day cycle became a suffering existence.

Therefore I have decided, with lots of thought, that something had to be done.  I decided that I was going to work for MY PATIENTS and NOT the insurance companies anymore.
The fix was simple.  Let’s get rid of extraneous “moving parts and red tape” offer value, time and a compassionate ear  and I can’t go wrong – even it it fail.

I started Willow Healing Center with my wonderful wife who is our in-house psychologist.

Our dream, since we met was to work down the hall from each other.  Well, check! that’s done.

The Willow Speaks

A friend of mine once said in a time of pain that he felt much like a willow branch blowing in a storm – not quite sure if he was going to break.

Do we ever really break? A willow branch is quite pliable. It can be manipulated into many different shapes, bent end-to-end in some cases and withstand significant internal and environmental stresses.  However, like most things, it has a breaking point if stressed too far.

Are You Black, White or Bridge?

Between two poles of thought lies a refuge* from ego. Think of this as a bridge separating two personally identified ideas, if you will. Some people prefer to sit on either side and not seek refuge on the bridge. Where do you stand? Continue reading Are You Black, White or Bridge?

Generation Gap, Where’s The Compassion?

BY: MICHAEL LEWIS

generations

There is a huge generation gap, between our parents’ generation and ours. I don’t just mean temporally. I mean emotionally. Our parent’s generation, for the most part, is from the time where deep discussion was rare. Issues were swept under the proverbial rug and Continue reading Generation Gap, Where’s The Compassion?
