Clinical Assistant Professor, Family Medicine
Specialties: Family Medicine
Clinical Interests: Integrative health care, women's health, adolescent medicine, breastfeeding, well-child care, family planning (including contraception), prenatal care, obstetrics (including delivery) and transgender health.

My practice is influenced strongly by my family background and experience as a parent. These area led to my additional study of integrative medicine and breastfeeding. My three children have been my greatest teachers in what it takes to birth, parent, and balance stress through it all. Stress is the leading factor in the health of my patients. Using it as a tool and managing it when it interferes with physical and mental health is key. This can be achieved through a holistic look at your life and goals, and using the best of conventional and complementary forms of medicine. I am drawn toward herbal medicine but use nutrition, exercise, aromatherapy, manual medicine, mind-body medicine, and homeopathic medicine in my practice. These therapies can also be useful in balancing hormones for those in perimenopause, and use of bioidentical hormone replacement has a role when needed. Our office sees a large volume of transgender patients through our relationship with the Comprehensive Gender Services Program, and I prescribe and manage transgender hormones. My gynecology and obstetrics training includes prenatal care and births, general gynecology, treatment of miscarriage, ultrasound, and colposcopy. When not in the office, I manage my stress through mindfulness, yoga, aromatherapy, walking in the woods, acupuncture, and being with my family.
