What Am I Up To?
I am now returned to clinical practice after a short sabbatical. During my time away, I centered my work around teaching at the University of Washington in the School of Nursing & Health Sciences and Bastyr University, writing, and taking steps in clinical research related to integrative medicine and postpartum depression. I really love teaching and will be sticking with it for awhile…
And…as of April 2019, I have resumed patient care in a way that allows me to create and maintain sustainability in my professional and personal life. In addition, I will have greater opportunity to serve you and your community more fully in my areas of passion and expertise.
I will be specializing and focusing on my work with patients during preconception, pregnancy, postpartum, lactation, and perinatal mood disorders. Thus, I will be moving away from my usual role as a primary care provider.
- I will be in clinical practice with limited hours alongside my teaching schedule. These hours will prioritize my clinical interests and dedication to adolescent and women’s health, pregnancy, postpartum health & mood changes, and lactation. You may call my office to schedule a visit, but I will not be opening my online scheduling for now.
- As part of my teaching commitment I will continue to be present in pediatric primary care via our new initiative at Eastside Natural Medicine, the Pediatric Teaching Clinic. Read on to learn more about how this will work, and also enable me to balance my love of teaching with being your family’s pediatric provider in an innovative way.
- In ongoing dedication to my midwife-life, I have developed a NEW Pregnancy & Postpartum Partnership program. Read on to learn more about how this will work and how to get started. I am thrilled to finally be able to offer midwifery care to anyone who wants a midwife and have put together a program that will allow me to do just that, and in any part of the world!
- Last but not least, I am finally getting to work on that book that many of you have encouraged me to write! Not suprisingly, it is about postpartum, grief, and storytelling. I will keep you posted as it evolves!
I look forward to hearing from and working with you soon!
