Areas of Practice
I specialize in the care of women, teens through menopause. My practice is a blend of well-woman annual care, problem-solving visits, prenatal care, labor and birth care.
Water birth, unmedicated birth and helping you with self care and healthy pregnancy behaviors is my passion. I am always supportive of women making informed choices about their care. I enjoy having the full range of resources available as needed for your birth and utilizing the interventions that are available when appropriate.
Assisting you with a healthy and happy relationship with your new baby is important to me and a big part of that is supporting your pregnancy and post-partum mood changes. I encourage you to access the many resources that are available in our vibrant childbirth community including prenatal education and movement classes, accessing doula care, lactation support, mom's groups and early childhood development education.
Beyond the childbearing years, I offer bone density education and advice for women in the menopausal years.
