Get to know me...
I live in Northwest Denver with my husband, two daughters, and our dog. We love to ski and play in the mountains any chance we get. I also love to travel, cook, do Crossfit, and ride the peloton. I can easily get lost in a good book for hours.

We value your commitment to us as your primary care provider and wanted to inform you about important changes at DOPC. In 2020, many of our members had more acute health needs and required deeper support. Some of you put your health on hold and now have a lot to catch up on. Since last year, we have met the demands of an evolving pandemic while continuing to provide exceptional, personalized patient care.
Our team knows that a new level of care and support is required of us. As with many organizations, the cost of doing business continues to increase. Direct Osteopathic has absorbed price increases over the years without raising prices since 2018.

I did not think I had any doctors in my family as I was dreaming of becoming one. Recently, my 92-year-old grandmother told me that her aunt was a doctor. She mailed me the obituary article about my great aunt, Dr Sippel. I cried when I read it to my kids; knowing from this article that indeed this woman is my relative, practicing from the heart with determination and compassion. Click the link below to read more.

SELF CARE PART 3: Seeking Joy
By Gretchen Frey, MD
We’ve talked about reducing stressors, and about implementing practices to focus on the positives in life. For the final installment in our self care series, I wanted to look at increasing sources of happiness, or what I would classify as seeking joy. Sometimes it’s not enough to banish the news and count our blessings. Sometimes we have to actively seek experiences that lift our spirits and/or cause us to forget the various dark clouds hanging over us.
