Sara Zwink proposed for membership
I know you want to read my bio but you're feeling stressed out from life so go ahead and let's pause, take a slow breath in... hold it for 4... slowly let it out. There, feeling better? Then you'll probably love what I do. 
Hi, I'm Dr. Sara Zwink and my passion is helping those who struggle with anxiety or other chronic health issues, via nervous system care, so they can live the life they deserve without being at odds with their own body. When I'm not changing lives, I'm often found reading, trying new restaurants, or desperately finding a place to hike in this great state of Texas, that's just a bit flatter than my home state of Alaska. Happy to be here, happy to help you.
