Women’s health consultations

A Collaborative approach allows us to look beyond symptoms to discover and heal root causes of illness.

Integrative Medicine principles and practice help us to look for root causes of illness and dis-ease to engage in a healing process there, drawing from a rich ‘toolbox’ of therapies. We work to simplify choices of treatments to be most effective, most safe, and most resonant with you.

Total health is a weaving of many factors. In addition to clinical assessment, physical exam and labwork as needed, we may assess and support lifestyle routines, nutrition, sleep and relaxation, sense of purpose and fulfillment, family and social life, mental/emotional/spiritual health, physical movement, time in nature, and sense of safety and security.

Please note - I do not offer clinical gynecology care services at this time - gyn exams, testing, pap smears, etc. Our work focuses on integrative approaches and options for treatment of conditions that may have already been identified and for preventative care.

Natural medicine

I work as much as possible with natural remedies such as botanical and nutritional therapies and self-care practices. When pharmaceutical medications are part of your care we are careful that these are integrated thoughtfully with your other treatments.

This is a partnership and patient-centered model of care. We take a deep dive into the unique map of your health history, intentions, life circumstances and needs, and what nourishes and uplifts your healing and well-being.

Together we set out to create a plan of care, we stay with it together, and we refine it as we pay close attention to how you respond to the therapies you choose.

You may have multiple doctors, therapists, and other health care providers with whom you are working. I can help navigate, advocate and coordinate the process of working with other healthcare providers so that you have a team that works together efficiently and attentively to your over all goals.
