About Larissa Popov
I was a very sensitive and intuitive child, and I knew that medicine was my calling from a very young age. I had a deep conviction that doctors should really know their patients; their lifestyle, their challenges, their coping strategies and support them in their unique circumstances. I felt that my health consultation should ultimately result in me feeling empowered, informed and of course, stronger in health. I believed that medicine should treat the whole person; mind and body, and that the role of a doctor above all is to listen, to care and to educate.
My unique skill set is well-suited for working with others who are struggling with anxiety, depression and emotional imbalances. I have been maintaining my own daily meditation practice for 15 years and teaching these practices as a volunteer for 10 years. Needless to say, I feel that developing an awareness of the body and mind, skillful stress management, and personal self-care practices can be tremendously helpful to overcome mental/emotional blocks and trauma as well as heal the body.
