Fertility Doctors & A.R.T. of Wellness

Bridging Medical Care with Heart & Healing

The A.R.T. of Wellness offers patients compassionate support to help individuals and couples prepare for family life by improving their overall lifestyle, fitness and well-being. As an IVF nurse and reproductive specialist for more than 25 years, I understand my client’s medical situations, as well as the negativity and disheartening emotions that can come from trying to conceive.
For over 25 years, I have collaborated with Fertility Doctors to offer care that compliments your medical regime. My mission is to help patients feel a better sense of being in control of their fertility journey by taking care of themselves. When they feel their best self, feel confident and are educated about their experience, they are better equipped to make life decisions to pursue family life, whether that be a pregnancy, an adoption or a child-free life.
Nurturing greater mind and body awareness, can free couples from negativity with miraculous results. We will point you in the right direction to find positive resources that to enhance fertility, such as nutrition, weight loss, acupuncture, stress management and support groups.
Let’s join together and live the motto,

“Never leave a patient crying in a room during a life crisis, but give hope and help heal their heart.”
