We use scientific advancements to question the dominant narrative about female aging.
Dr. Parker specializes in the care of women ages 28+ as they begin to face hormonal imbalances. She treats an array of conditions associated with menopause and female aging which deserve more attention than primary care permits. This includes conditions like menstrual migraines, mood changes, vaginal changes, lowered libido, changes in skin & hair, osteoporosis and arthritic conditions. She also works on adjunctive diagnosis & treatment of conditions indirectly impacted by hormones, in post-menopause and cancer survivors. She is a nationally certified menopause provider by the North American Menopause Society, signified by the credentials NCMP.
Dr. Parker has a focus on the effects of aging on the female brain. Mid-life hormonal changes drastically impact the dynamic mantle of a woman's neurological integrity. This occurs regardless of a woman's race, ethnicity or nationality. At least 80% of women have reported neurological symptoms associated with menopause, and yet the vast majority of these women remain untreated or are improperly educated about options to maintain brain function, support sleep and care for mood changes. Our unique approach to whole-woman healthcare embraces a systems-biology approach and critical appraisal of medical literature to curate contemporary clinical advancements for personalized menopausal hormone therapy.
We offer multi-faceted, innovative solutions for female intimacy, improved vaginal health and
sexual confidence for:
These conditions are impacted by aging and hormonal change. Using an evidence informed approach, Dr. Parker offers several options for care, including prescription medications, peptides, hormonal replenishment & nutritional and holistic therapies.
Precision diagnosis drives therapeutic treatments.
Our clinic celebrates a woman's intelligence, creativity and spirit, and helps her revive these elements when health concerns arise. Dr. Parker curated the therapeutic consultation series Feminine Medicine for Body & Mind with a woman's individuality in mind. We realize that when a woman's sense of vitality begins to fade, she may seek out reassurance from conventional medical systems which can only diagnose her with a condition or otherwise deem her as 'fine'. When a woman knows that she is not 'fine', she may require medical paradigm which is inclusive of her direct experiences and concerns, including options for care which value the way she wants to be treated. Integrative & personalized medicine bridges the gaps between alternative and conventional care to insightfully understand your health and advance your healing. We consider your unique health goals, genetics, family history, nutrition, and other lifestyle factors. We also appreciate how heartbreak, medications, developmental narratives, a collectively ill society and stress may have changed you - for better or worse. This clinic affirms the personal responsibility and self-efficacy of cultivating health and wellness.
These are phrases which healthy women facing hormonal imbalance reveal:
but inside I feel like Im falling apart"
Women work with Dr. Parker to finally resolve the biochemical gestalt of mid-life changes which have begun to thwart their happiness, confidence, autonomy and purpose.
Patients receive personalized care plans tailored to their specific versions of wellness and aspirational goals for life.
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals are the hidden culprits underlying some forms of illness, including some types of hormonal imbalance such as endometriosis, PCOS, PMS, infertility, perimenopause and weight issues.
With conventional medicine, endocrine disruption often goes unaddressed; symptoms are treated while root causes are not evaluated nor resolved, and so imbalances often accumulate and worsen when receiving standard treatment. As part of our differential diagnosis for challenging cases, we use a functional medicine approach to consider the potential impact that 'Forever Chemicals', environmental pollutants & mycotoxins may have on the etiologies of modern illness. Neutralization, clearance & detoxification of these chemicals are imparted into the healing process.
What is your hair saying about your health? We screen for important endocrine conditions which impact a diverse interplay of hormonal patterns that drive hair thinning at its root. Hair is a symptom of the health, vitality and integrity of circulatory, endocrine, digestive, lymphatic and metabolic systems. Determining the cause(s) of your unique hair loss guides your unique treatment plan and clinical recommendations. Addressing rejuvenation with root cause assessment translates difficult symptoms into a meaningful transformation in your life, and ensures that treatment results are sustained.
How we look can impact how we feel about ourselves. Stress, excessive androgen hormones, lowered estrogen, lowered progesterone, thyroid imbalances, disturbed sleep, improper diet and nutrient status all impact how we shine. Both external beauty and internal radiance face uphill battles with aging. By focusing on root causes rather than just chasing symptoms, holistic healthcare makes you healthier in the process of obtaining more sustainable beauty.
In addition to hormone balancing for beauty and well being, we offer Cosmetic PRP (commonly known as the Vampire Facelift), stem cell rejuvenation procedures, green beauty products & anti-aging peptide therapies.
Our approach to sustainably shedding body fat preserves muscle while improving metabolic, microbiomic, mitochondrial and nutritional factors. We address hormone & nutrient status, digestion, absorption, gut flora and dysbiosis, in addition to critical lifestyle factors such as sleep. Weight concerns are real and should not be attributed to mere vanity. Mid-section weight gain increases the risks for multiple diseases, including brain atrophy, depression and cardiovascular disease. Just 3-10% reductions in body fat create clinical benefit for diabetes prevention, improved osteoarthritis, lipid management and hypertension.
We are here to help with novel approaches designed for safety & efficacy.
Because hormones play a critical role in the sleep and wake cycles, middle-age women are moving targets for sleep disorders, including:
Regaining restorative sleep is an essential first step towards healing myriad ailments.
Addressing the root cause of insomnia makes the the therapeutic response sustainable & effective.

Each day our patients are reminded that 'Health is our greatest wealth'. One's state of physical, mental & emotional health is not only our greatest asset, it can also bless us or block us from accessing literal wealth. A woman's health undergoes profound shifts beginning at around age 35-50, often coinciding with what are generally regarded as her 'peak earning years'... Neuroscience data from University of Southern California has shown that 80% of peri-menopausal women experience transient states of hormonally influenced neurological dysfunction. This progresses into the variegated symptoms of menopause, including cognitive changes, elusive deep sleep, severe mood changes, new-onset interpersonal challenges such as a divorce or break-up, decreased self-esteem and lowered stress resilience. While these are notable symptoms, other 'silent' disease states incrementally occur in women whose hormones are not aligned. A small sampling of common conditions includes insulin resistance, diabetes & cardiovascular disease, all of which predispose women to developing cognitive decline.
Professional women and women undergoing significant life stressors are at greater risk of experiencing these changes.
By intervening with targeted therapies, ideally at the beginning of this transition, restored hormonal balance can help to protect against this whole-body tipping point, cultivating critical protection against neurodegenerative changes later in life while easing systemic stress. Increasing energy and vitality well into one's golden years begins by planting seeds in your thirties and forties, and attentively nourishing the proverbial garden thereafter. Let us show you how.
