Emily began her nursing career as a Labor and Delivery RN in 2001 after she received her BSN from UNC-Charlotte. In 2008 she graduated from Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing with her MSN and Women's Healthcare Nurse Practitioner degrees. Since 2008 she has been working as a Women's Healthcare NP in various OBGYN offices in several states. Emily is board certified with the National Certification Corporation and is licensed to practice in both Tennessee and Alabama as an NP. She has been practicing in Alabama since 2010.
Emily lives in Meridianville with her husband, step daughter, and her son and daughter from a previous marriage. She also has two loving dogs to keep her busy. Her passions outside of gynecology are gardening, hiking, yoga, playing guitar, dancing, singing, puzzles, and a huge love of travel. Originally born in Asheville, NC she has lived in TN, AZ, and now AL since 2009.
Emily has completed a 6 month training program to become a certified Flower Essence Practitioner. Flower essences are helpful in a myriad of ways on the physical, emotional, mental and energetic levels. These essences are particularly effective in helping women work through sexual trauma, abuse, and the general suppression of sexuality which is so common especially in the deep South. In April 2022 she became a Certified Flower Essence Practitioner after completing the credentialing process.
The summer of 2020 she took a training program through Huntsville Crisis Services to become a forensic nurse examiner with both physical and sexual abuse victims. Her knowledge of how to interact and help victims of abuse is unique as a practitioner in gynecology. This knowledge and skill set is not taught in traditional medical or nursing schools. She has always had an interest in working with women as a sexual counselor not just in instances of abuse but also for relationship guidance, sexual difficulties with orgasm for example, and educating women on their bodies and making them comfortable discussing their sexual wants and needs with whomever they choose.
Flower essences are liquid, energetic medicine derived from flowers, plants, and trees. Mother Earth has so many natural remedies to share with us that have been forgotten but were always available to us. Basically, a flower essence helps shift and move deeply held patterns or beliefs imprinted in childhood that are now affecting us in adulthood. They bring awareness to these patterns and help us release them so we can heal. They have been used for centuries in ceremony, for spiritual development, and to heal.
Flower essences are dispensed in glass dropper bottles and usually taken several times a day under the tongue but can be applied topically or used in a bath or humidifier. Results to essences vary from profound and immediate to subtle shifts of mental and emotional states. These essences do not interact with any other medications, herbs, or drugs the person may be taking and are completely safe. Emily will meet with you for an interview about why you are seeking treatment and create a unique formula for you to take home and use per her directions. This process takes several months and several different formulas usually as you traverse your healing journey.

Yoga classes, pharmaceutical grade health supplements, women's health products I recommend that are eco and womb friendly, women's circles and more to come! I am now carrying my own custom yoni (vaginal) steams which are a mix of herbs and flower essences to promote health and well being in the womb space.
I perform flower essence evaluations and distribute unique formulas that I make to clients for any problem but with a focus on gynecologic problems, specifically womb healing from any type of sexual trauma or suppression. This is a three month commitment as the healing process is a journey and not an overnight fix. The initial consultation is 90 min and is $111 and includes 1-3 custom flower essence formulas you will take for one month or as needed in some cases such as an anxiety formula. There will be 1 month and 2 month follow up sessions of 60 min at $88 each that includes 1-3 custom flower essences each time to continue your healing.
Over a thousand years ago yoni eggs were practiced with in the ancient Taoist tradition to increase sexual energy, promote reproductive health and extend longevity. The Yellow Emperor had three female advisors who created these yoni egg practices for the royal dynasty of China.
Benefits include: building vaginal strength, improved muscle control of the pelvic floor, decreases menstrual cramps and PMS symptoms, balances and regulates hormone levels, fosters feelings of connection and self worth, improves a woman’s understanding of her anatomy, decreases stress, improves concentration, enhances sleep, boosts immunity and overall health, promotes connection and self-worth, heals emotional and physical womb trauma, and increases passion and feminine sensual energy.
This process that is centuries old combines steam, herbs, and relaxation to create a “steam” that transports the medicinal benefits of herbs directly to the vagina and reproductive system. The moist heat provides direct healing to the reproductive system by opening the pores of the vagina to allow amazing absorption into your bloodstream. Vaginal tissue is the most absorbent tissue of the body! A woman would sit over the "steam" for 15-45 minutes at a time. Timing and frequency of yoni steam use is very individual and depends on each woman's unique situation. My custom yoni steams also have flower essences in them for added medicinal benefit for the womb space.
This ancient practice has been practiced through the centuries in many cultures including Mayan, indigenous African peoples, Native American, Asian, and Caribbean cultures. You may also know it by other names such as Womb Therapy, Yoni Steam Bath, Womb Sauna, Vaginal Steaming, and V-Steam. After a yoni steam women report a new sense of youthfulness and well-being. Benefits are numerous and are not limited to the following:
At this time I carry four types of Yoni Steams:
Conception is to aid women struggling with infertility.
Renew is for menopausal women to assist with issues such as vaginal dryness.
Refresh is a general steam for all women to maintain optimal vaginal health.
Balance is for women who struggle with frequent vaginal infections.
