More than just a way to capture attention, the spelling of Inner Fōkus also carries a personal meaning to the founders.  The name is a nod to the German heritage shared by both Dr. Lori and Dr. Patrick, since “fōkus” is the correct spelling of “focus” in German.

Our heritage, culture, and environment can have great impacts in shaping who we are. Our name, Inner Fōkus, also serves as a prominent reminder of the importance to occasionally break from current patterns and try new things.

Our business name also embodies the philosophy behind our approach to treatment. It reflects the importance of looking within to identify and move beyond challenges and pursue health.

There are many layers to an Inner Fōkus. It can reflect looking at ourselves as individuals, members of a family or other group, or at our behaviors and how we interact with others.
