Emily Webb

 

Emily's greatest joy in life is in service and connection. 

         Her life has been a lattice with the threads of medical work, meditation, and end-of-life spirituality            weaving together in sacred ways.    

As our current healthcare model becomes more industrialized, more people are finding it difficult to afford good health insurance. Even with insurance, many services are not covered. Dr. Webb opted out of the insurance system so she can provide compassionate, personalized care to her patients. For some people, they do not want their medical records to be in the insurance system, and they choose to self pay. Dr. Webb sees patients of all income levels, whether they have insurance or not. 

 

Recent studies have proven that our physical health is tied to our mental health, which is also connected to our spiritual health. These aspects of ourselves are intrinsically connected, as one affects the others. Without understanding and embodying this awareness, we cannot live a joyful, fulfilled, and meaningful life.  

 

After she completed her Bachelor's degree from UCLA, Dr. Webb received her Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from New York College of Podiatric Medicine, Summa Cum Laude. Thereafter, she completed her surgical residency at Scripps Mercy in San Diego and Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento. She has been in practice in Fort Collins since 2000.  

 

Dr. Webb is Board Certified with American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. She also  served on the Colorado Podiatry Medical Board from 2008-2012 and 2016-2020.

Meditation

We normally function out of our survival fight-flight-freeze mode when we are under stress.  Without retraining our brain, when we are triggered, we would most likely react from a fear-based model rather than respond with clarity, compassion, and wisdom.  The fear-based model is our primitive way of thinking, mainly for survival purposes. If we remain in this mode of operation in our day-to-day life, no matter how much money we have accumulated, or how many achievements we have accomplished, we will never feel satisfied or enough. There is always the feeling that "something is still missing."  

 

In meditation, we come to know our true self - the part of us that does not die, the part that is connected to All. When we realize our true existence, peace and joy become our nature. 

 

Emily is a certified mindfulness meditation instructor, MMTCP.

Spiritual Support

End-of-Life transition

Facing death can be the most challenging and yet a spiritually evolving process one can go through.  Instead of the society's way of avoidance and resistance, we should honor this process that each one of us will face one day.  

 

Death is not the opposite of life. It is part of life.  Our modern society tends to view death and dying as something abnormal or worse, a "failure."  This view of resistance adds unnecessary suffering to the dying and the family.  In fact, it is a natural process and it is something we will all go through.  

 

Just as any other phase of our life, e.g. growing up, getting married, having kids, retirement, we should prepare and honor this transition of our life as well. We don't have to wait until we receive the diagnosis of a terminal illness before we tell someone we love them, or we forgive them.  We should also learn to love and forgive ourselves, and to let go of expectations, regrets and things we have no control over.  

 

Facing this transition can bring fear and anxiety undoubtedly. It can also be a healing process for some.  

 

Emily received her psychedelic-assisted therapy certification at Naropa University. She is a trained end-of-life doula with the International End-of-Life Doula Association (INELDA). She also completed her certification at End-of-Life and Existential Distress in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy with PRATI. 

 

Emily supports people with a terminal diagnosis or the family who may experience fear and anxiety during this phase of life. Or perhaps, people just want someone to talk to because there is unfinished business. And sometimes, we don't need any conversation because a silent, calming presence is all we want.
