Clinical Interest for Patients
My main clinical focus is on women's behavioral health. This includes treatment of women both during pregnancy and directly following delivery, as well as during the menopausal transition. I enjoy providing integrative treatment that takes into account an individual's hormonal status, past experiences, and current challenges.
I believe in providing care that: 1) Is tailored to the unique experiences and biology of the individual; 2) Is grounded in scientific evidence; 3) Promotes healthy individual development throughout the lifespan.
