Team Bio

Heather Cook, FNP-BC, Midi Clinician

A focus on long term health: “During my 30 years as a nurse, including 24 as a Family Nurse Practitioner, I’ve worked in many different settings from public health to internal medicine. I have always been interested in longevity, with a special focus on thriving during midlife and far beyond.”

From patient to provider: “In my late thirties, I faced personal health crises that led me to seek treatment from an integrative medicine doctor. After a couple of years as his patient, I was inspired by his approach and joined his practice, spending six years learning not just about prescribing treatments, but also about holistic and collaborative patient care. Midlife care should involve a partnership between providers and patients, where we work together to create tailored treatment plans.”

A positive menopause mindset: “I encourage my patients to approach menopause with a sense of curiosity, humor, and self-compassion. The menopause transition is a wonderful time to learn to care for yourself in new ways, dedicate yourself to your health and wellbeing, and to advocate for yourself.”
