I worked for several years in the field of community mental health before relocating to the Pacfic NW for medical school. I am a graduate of Bastyr University and completed a 2-year post-graduate training program in integrative women’s health. I am credentialed by NAMS as a certified menopause practitioner, ABORM as a fellow of oriental reproductive medicine, and PSI in perinatal mood & anxiety disorders: the only physician to have this combination of education & training.
I have been in clinical practice since 2003 with a special focus on women’s health; emphasizing nutrition and exercise in health maintenance and disease prevention and treatment. I am committed to the mental and physical health of women of all ages and I believe that our goal for health & wellness is a matter of progress, not perfection. Education and empowerment can help us take a proactive, preventive approach to the treatment of any condition.
I specialize in hormonal changes in women of all ages, including, but not limited to:
Vaginal health and sexual concerns.
With an emphasis on physical health and mental wellbeing in preconception, prenatal, postpartum, and post-childbearing, my goal is for all women to flourish throughout their reproductive years & beyond. I want to hear your story. I want to help you reach your goals.
In my free time, I try to walk the talk: doing yoga, meditating, bike commuting, gardening, cooking, hiking with my dogs, and traveling with my husband.
