Nursing Support for Your Health

Hello! My name is Arya Pretlow. I am a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM), International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT). I combine these interests and specialties to provide primary care in the state of Washington, and Nurse Coaching, educational seminars, and Yoga Therapy around the country via online platforms.

Nurses are trained to be good listeners and to support clients in meeting their health and wellness goals. Client advocacy is a central tenet of the nursing model of care. I employ Jean Watson's Philosophy of Science and Caring in my work. This philosophy (1) emphasizes a whole-person approach to care, (2) acknowledges the value of mind-body-spirit interconnectedness, and (3) considers the client's environment as it relates to their health and wellness. With this foundation in mind, I co-create treatment plans with my clients using an integrative approach - combining current evidence and treatment strategies with complementary tools such as mindfulness practices, breath work, body work, energy work, aromatherapy, herbs, and supplements.

I am actively engaged in reproductive justice and healthcare equity. I acknowledge systemic and implicit biases and the negative impact they have in every aspect of life, including health care. Your sense of belonging, autonomy, and safety are my priorities. You are welcome here!
