A Family Tradition; Doctoring with Love
by Dr Brie
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.

Self Care Part 2: Reframing
By Gretchen Frey
“It’s not having what you want, it’s wanting what you’ve got”
- Sheryl Crow, Soak Up the Sun
The last installment I wrote dealt with becoming more present, by focusing on the breath (for example) and removing distractions. Once we’re present, it’s a good time to “change the channel” on our usual thought patterns. If we look at life through a different lens, we can come away with very different feelings. Below, we’ll talk about some reframing practices; then, we’ll examine some specific focused meditations and prayers for those who are cultivating a daily practice.

Hello everyone, and welcome to 2021!
It seems fair to say that the hard times are not yet behind us. With that in mind, let us focus on some self care techniques to help us all get through the dark days of winter. This month we’ll discuss calming; next month, reframing or shifting our perspective; and in the third installment, we’ll look at seeking out and increasing joyfulness. Click below to read more!

Uninsured? You've got options!
Did you know that the Connect for Health Colorado has re-opened the insurance health exchange to allow those that are uninsured to find coverage now through May 15, 2021.
Perhaps you are looking for something different?

We know that navigating health care can be complicated and expensive.
ACCESS+ from @Sedera offers a refreshingly different approach for managing large healthcare costs free of third-parties and networks. Medical Cost Sharing allows you to enjoy a direct relationship with your medical providers while taking control of your costs.
Sedera is available to anyone. You don't need to be a member of our practice.

What a year 2020 has been! It will go down in the history books for sure! How we choose to reflect on it is entirely up to our perspective. Here’s a little look back from the perspective of YOUR doctor, a mom, and a business owner.
First of all, thank you! There is absolutely no way we would be here without our forward thinking members who wanted to approach their health care in an innovative way. It reminds me how we have practiced in line with our vision:
