An uplifting space to learn about menstrual cycles, pelvic anatomy, physiology of reproduction, healthy sexuality and cultivating a mindful approach to lifestyle choices. We will explore the real self vs the social media self and the impact on her mood, sleep, friendships, pursuits and well-being – Let’s make her gynecologic experience one that fills her with acceptance, support and information so that she may cultivate a lifelong sense of curiosity about her body and intentional decision making.
Infertility is a medical condition that has psychosocial facets as well. The emotional and relational distress of patients undergoing fertility treatments is well described and mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) are both useful and becoming increasingly popular – I am able to guide with an understanding of both the medical condition & procedures involved. Together we cultivate tools for coping with the unpredictable nature of the journey.

We are often engaged in the practice of meditation without even knowing that we are- perhaps it’s in those moments that we become aware of our longings. When we bring intentionality to the practice, we reap the benefits- and with the growing body of research, this list of benefits is getting longer every day. To me, mindfulness is a quality that can be cultivated to transform our longing into intention.
“Obstetrician–gynecologists have the opportunity to provide holistic care for their patients. This includes taking a comprehensive history, diagnosing and treating conditions that are identified with a comprehensive history and focused examinations, and providing evidence-based and evidence-informed clinical preventive services. Although components of a physical examination may not be required at a well-woman visit, obstetrician–gynecologists can play a critical role in engaging patients in shared decision making, encouraging and facilitating healthy behaviors, and counseling about a wide array of effective preventive health practices. There is great variability in how these services are offered among health care delivery systems, and obstetrician–gynecologists should work within their local systems to promote their role in providing primary and preventive care services for women.”
