Sarah Wallis, MSN WHNP-BC CNM NCMP, midi clinician
“Compassionate, engaged, accessible.” Those are the three words Sarah uses to describe the care she’s delivered throughout her twenty years in women’s health. All three values come into play with her patients in the menopause transition. She strives to help them feel validated, and put them at ease: “I see many women who’ve felt dismissed or overlooked in a health system that lacks understanding of how profound the changes of midlife can be. It’s not just about hot flashes! Our changing hormones affect everything from the immune system, to our ability to multi-task, to our intimate relationships.”
As a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and Midwife who is certified by the North American Menopause Society, Sarah focuses on health and wellness in midlife. She is fluent in English, Spanish, and Arabic, and specializes in culturally sensitive care, with a holistic approach to women’s health that is tailored to each patient’s needs.
“The most important thing we can do as clinicians,” she says, “is to help every patient feel that the working of her own body is not a mystery, nor classified information, but that it’s an elegant design that makes sense—even as it’s changing. The more we can help women understand that process, and own it, the more they can take charge of their own well-being.”
