Simply the best – I found Cara four years ago when I was seven months pregnant with twins and looking for a practioner to help me avoid a C-section. No no one would see me—until I called Cara. I see her still, only now I’m recovering from cancer. Now as then, she helps me help myself. She provides truly person-centered care, taking the time to listen and respond. The new office is warm and relaxing and the herbs are awesome. I would follow her anywhere—she is the best.
