Family Practice Nurse Practitioner

Caring for People of all Ages

Family Practice Nurse Practitioner

As I developed the clinic services, I wanted to offer a unique model of care that optimizes my skills and expertise, without duplicating services that can easily be obtained in Winona. So, while I would like to provide a well-rounded care experience, there won’t be “knives or needles” at Tincture of Thyme Healthcare. We treat:

  • Individuals & families
  • General wellness exams
  • Skin problems such as acne and eczema
  • Illness: sore throat, ear ache, cough, sinus infections, etc.
  • Disease: high blood pressure, cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, irritable bowel, arthritis
  • Anxiety, depression, confusion, insomnia & such
  • Menstrual, menopausal, prostate & sexual concerns
  • Side effects of aging
  • Weight concerns
  • and more
