Description

I firmly believe that healing doesn’t require perfect habits or perfect circumstances - there is such power in simplicity and sustainability.
I have two main areas of clinical focus: (1) hormonal & menstrual health and (2) cardiovascular health. I support folks who have PMS, PMDD, PCOS, painful periods, heavy periods, and irregular periods. I’m also passionate about providing care throughout the menopause transition - from perimenopause to postmenopause. Additionally, I offer cervical cancer screening (pap testing and/or HPV testing) for both new and returning patients.
