----
What is your specialization and why did you choose to work in this area?

I am a certified nurse midwife, practicing for over 20 years. I was drawn to the nurturing, individualized care that midwives provide for pregnant women. I am no longer attending births but still am committed to providing individualized care to all my patients.

----
Tell us about your practice and specialty and which patients should see you.

People automatically associate pregnancy with midwives but in my current role, I provide care for women of all ages integrating my knowledge as a health coach and yoga teacher. I see people for GYN care and often provide health guidance to help them make changes to improve their overall quality of life through yoga, meditation, health coaching.

----
What keeps patients from trying an integrative or functional health approach?

Many people are more comfortable with a traditional Western medical approach since that is what they know. I offer them options that might help them alleviate symptoms either in place of or in conjunction with traditional care. For example, utilizing yoga poses for insomnia, osteoporosis or menopausal symptoms. I offer health counseling for people with obesity, high cholesterol or diabetes.

----
What do your patients remark upon most after their first visit? What keeps someone returning?

I think people come back because I listen. I provide care that suits their needs and not automatically prescribe medications. However, if that is the most appropriate option, I certainly offer that.

----
What is your level of support for health insurance and claims?
Our office accepts most major insurance carriers including Medicare and Medicaid.
