At Associates in Women's Health, I believe in the positive powers of presence and listening. I recognize that a woman's needs must be addressed within the context of her life. Thus, I strive to integrate body, mind and spirit into the care I provide. I desire to help each woman meet her highest level of health and well-being. I value family and social support and welcome those who choose to participate in women's health care.
I am committed to personal attention, gentle inquiries, tender examinations and client-directed problem solving. I feel that each woman needs a respectful atmosphere where she can blossom and mature in self-esteem. My goal is to explore the unique person and her life in a holistic manner. I am committed to the education of myself and my clients regarding alternative approaches.
I provide quality, comprehensive health care throughout a woman's life cycle. I recognize the special needs of young women and the importance of a positive introduction to women's health care. As a health care provider, I take responsibility for making gynecologic visits comfortable, nonthreatening, respectful and informative. I regard the process of pregnancy, birth and maturation as normal, healthy life events that bring wonderful opportunities for personal growth.
