I received my M.D. at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, and did my post-doctoral training (residency) at University Medical Center in Obstetrics and Gynecology. I am certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and am active on staff at Evergreen Hospital Medical Center.
I have enjoyed every moment of my career, spending 30 years delivering babies and helping women with their various health issues. I stopped delivering babies in 2007 to pursue my real passion, which is to try to understand the causes of illness. I still do gynecology, which involves taking care of women with all their reproductive and health care needs. This includes contraceptive counseling, menopausal counseling and evaluation for abnormal bleeding issues, among others.
Over the past ten years I have been extensively training in the disciplines of meditation and energy healing. My own training has allowed me to get in touch with my true inner self, and to be able to gain greater understanding of why I think and function the way I do. This in turn allows me to help others more effectively and efficiently.
While I often use alternative healing methods, there are times when traditional western medicine is the best and most effective approach, and I have the experience to help you with that. Occasionally surgery is needed, and if that is the case, I will help you have the surgery done in a minimally invasive way. The patient benefits from shorter operation times, and much more rapid healing compared with traditional, large abdominal incisions.
I combine western medical practices with complementary alternative approaches, to find the most effective healing for what ails you. I believe we all should have the choice to select from the whole spectrum of healing modalities, and take charge of our own health. I work with excellent acupuncturists, massage therapists, naturopaths and healers of other disciplines, and together we will help you find the best approach for your health care needs. I welcome you to my practice!
