Hi, I’m Dr LaReesa.

I am a women’s hormone expert, integrative health coach, and consultant with nearly two decades of experience in women’s health as a board-certified OB/GYN physician. Nothing gives me greater joy than having the privilege of being on this incredible journey with other women. 

I once heard someone say that when you think about your life’s passion and about gravitating toward your destiny, it’s helpful to start with what frustrates you. Ask yourself – What gets under your skin? What drives your inner spirit? 

As an OB/GYN, I have an impactful job that I love because there is nothing I love more than working with and helping women. I have shared incredibly private moments with my patients, where they bare their hearts and souls and secrets that often aren’t shared with spouses or other loved ones. Even after the clinical visit ends, I have lingering thoughts about how I can go beyond the office visit to continue the dialogue – a dialogue that will impact countless women and the quality of their lives. In medical training, you “see one, do one, teach one.” Oftentimes, however, it is only the “see one, treat one,” with little time left to “teach (and transform) one.” This is what we need more of today—teaching, inspiring, empowering—so that others can make their own transformations. 

And this is why I created Thrive Beyond Medical Wellness.

It's time for a more Integrated Approach.

Be brave and finally seek out the care you deserve. We go beyond the typical 10-15 minute annual medical check-up. It’s not just a quick “hello” and “goodbye.” Instead, it’s a true partnership to help guide you in making medically informed decisions that set you up to prevent bothersome health woes that impact women and get the most out of trusted expert advice and accountability.

This is a guided experience that doesn’t just entail a regular pap smear or getting your tatas checked. It’s all about living healthier with more vitality and independence for today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Take a new approach to your health and life. Be brave, bold, and courageous when it comes to taking the bull by the horns and taking back control. With our Hybrid Health Approach, it’s like attending an annual check-up but more. This can help determine if we are a good fit, as well as help you get the attention and care you crave to get your health on track.
