Chris Adams, MD, and Her Future Practice

After many years of a rich and varied practice as a family doctor, I am excited to be transitioning into a new practice.  I look forward to offering the skill, wisdom, and experience I have cultivated over many years. While keeping up with my continuing education in the realm of family medicine, I have also been following my instincts by learning other healing ways which include interactive guided imagery, journeywork, mindfulness meditation, natural medicine, tai chi/qigong, yoga, and flower essences.  These practices continue to teach me about listening compassionately and the value of being able to step into other ways of perceiving in order to grow.

My life’s work has been and is dedicated to an ever-deepening understanding of how best to care for our own lives and for each other. I look forward to being able to continue this work in a practice where we can focus on tapping into the wisdom that is inherent in each of us.

In my new consultation and counseling practice, my areas of emphasis will be open dialogue, mind-body and contemplative practices, and interactive guided imagery on issues related to parenting and development, relationships, grief and loss, life changes and transitions, and chronic health conditions. With my background in medicine, I would like to work with individuals and families that are trying to navigate the many choices in healthcare.  I am also interested in working with people that are looking for a more sustainable way to be of service in the world.  I try to create a tender and respectful space where we can discover what is true, and, once there, find ways to translate what we learn into meaningful understanding and action.

You can contact me through OSFM at 206-363-5555 x112 for an appointment after 9/1/12.  I will also keep updated information on the OSFM and SHAC websites about my new practice. I look forward to meeting with you. Until then, I wish you well.
