About

Bio

I am a board-certified OB/GYN and fellowship-trained in Family Planning. I have extensive experience in caring for women's reproductive healthcare needs including pregnancy planning, contraception, treatment of menstrual disorders, and pregnancy options counseling. I specialize in contraceptive care for women with complex medical histories. My mission is to provide compassionate, empowering, and comprehensive reproductive healthcare that is individualized to fit your needs. I want to provide a space for my patients where they feel safe asking me anything, knowing that they will receive the highest-quality evidence-based recommendations.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
