Meet Kristina Chamberlain, CNM, ARNP, IBCLC


I began my career in women’s health in 1995, without even realizing it. I volunteered at a women’s clinic in Chicago run by a group of diverse, but like- minded women (considered radical by some). We all agreed that everyone deserved to be listened to, to be treated with respect, and to have access to health care. Unfortunately, it seemed like a novel idea to many outside of our walls. But the work done at this particular clinic inspired me to leave my job as a theater producer and go to midwifery school so that I could do my part in changing health care. I have worked with women in hospitals and clinics in Russia and Guatemala, which has only solidified my belief that we all want the same thing: respect, good health, and support. Since then, I have collected many licenses and certifications, but the original passion is still there.

I graduated from the midwifery program at the University of Washington in 2005. I continued to earn a post-masters certification in Women’s Health and was also certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Though I am a midwife and feel honored to have been a part of so many babies coming into the world, I no longer attend births. Instead, I focus my practice on working with women throughout the other stages of their lives, providing well- woman care, including, but not limited to annual exams, birth control, and breast health care. Because I want to stay in the baby world, I also specialize in lactation issues. Before opening Eastside Total Health, I provided lactation support through home visits, and worked in various women’s health clinics. I recently published my first book: I Can Breastfeed, Visualizing Your Way to Breastfeeding Success.

As ETHL grew, it became clear that it was time to expand. With that expansion came some changes, including adding more providers, and more services, such as pelvic floor therapy and family building via fertility awareness and inseminations.

It humbles me that so many women and their families have trusted me to be a part of their health care.

I am certified by or a member of the following organizations:

In my spare time (ha!), I am running around with my daughters, swimming, having date night with my husband, and experimenting with gluten free recipes.

I am excited to make Washington state my new home! I was born and raised in San Francisco, and moved to New York 25 years ago, so moving back to the West coast is like coming home.

I earned my bachelor degrees and master’s in Midwifery from Columbia University in 1998. For over a decade, I had the honor of caring for one of the most culturally diverse and underserved communities of New York where I attended hundreds of births at a free standing birthing center. There, the notion of “family” was defined by the community’s tremendous love and tenacity. The commitment to building generations based on strength and respect laid the foundation for opening an all-inclusive health center.

I later joined an elite team of high risk practitioners, where I spent six years expanding my knowledge and skill set. Although much of my clientele experienced multiple pregnancy losses, infertility challenges, and life threatening medical conditions, there was an inherent space for Midwifery care. Bridging these contrasting experiences as a Midwife has given me the expertise and inspiration to dedicate my life’s work to family building.

Family building means many things.

At Eastside Total Health, families can meet many of their healthcare needs. I offer annual preventative exams, as well as care for women throughout the life cycle from adolescence to menopause. I offer a wide variety of contraceptive choices, including, but not limited to, natural family planning rhythm method, diaphragm fitting, intrauterine device (IUD) counseling and insertion, and contraceptive pills, patches, and rings. Essentially, finding the right fit

I provide a customized holistic framework in order to maximize the opportunity for conception. For families conceiving through intrauterine insemination (IUI), at-home intracervical insemination (ICI) or intercourse, gestational carrier or surrogacy, I offer holistic modalities coupled with technology to escort families through the process with ease.

It is my mission to support all families, with specific expertise in the LGBTQ community and single parents by choice.

As a proud member of both communities, I strive to create a comfortable, non-judgemental atmosphere, while delivering quality care in order to escort my clients through their journey towards parenthood.

I am excited to create a home here in this beautiful state, and am committed to creating a safe, supportive space where we can grow strong communities by building strong families.

Cori Dixon, LMP, CST


Welcome! I’m the owner and Licensed Massage Practitioner at Evo Healing Arts. I have found my passion in massage and helping the body to find it’s natural state of health and balance. Whether it’s therapeutic massage, or assisting in relaxation and quieting the body, I love it when my clients leave feeling their best! Massage has many facets and I treat each client on a case by case basis, realizing there are individual needs for everyone that I see. I keep an awareness and presence to adjust the treatment as I need to throughout the session. Touch therapy is a powerful thing, and I have the utmost respect for it. The connection between client and practitioner is a special one, and I honor that position. *I use all organic, scent free, dye free lotions and oils to be cautious of any allergies or sensitivities.

Craniosacral Therapy is a modality of manual therapy my practice has evolved into. I find that more and more people are discovering the benefits of CST, and it’s incorporated into almost all of my massages. It’s a very gentle touch (about 5 grams of pressure, or the weight of a quarter resting on you) and it works through the energetic and electrical exchange of touch. The effectiveness of loosening the fascia (fibrous connective tissue throughout all of the muscles, organs, and other soft structures of the body) has amazing results in the realignment of the entire body. It accesses a deep parasympathetic state (peaceful/relaxation) where great healing can occur. During a CST treatment, the client is an active participant of setting their intention and “going within” their own body to focus on what we’re working on…this is very useful for making real change! *Treatment is done lying on a massage table, fully clothed, with blankets available for warmth or comfort.

I see many newborns, babies, and toddlers for Craniosacral Therapy. Some of the treatments include; torticollis, cranial/facial molding, colic, tongue tie, feeding problems, disruptive sleep patterns and general fussiness. I truly love working with my littlest of clients! CST is very useful for newborns, as their systems are so open and available. I’m grateful for the opportunity to aid in helping these new little people have the best possible start they can, helping them to adjust after the birth process and while they are changing so rapidly. *It’s best to have your child able to be in a thin layer of clothing for treatment. It’s done on a massage table, as well as many different positions being held by both the parents and myself. Treatment while breastfeeding is often a good time to be sure the baby is calm and relaxed.

My education and background include:

I have always been drawn to and enjoyed health care. Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves. I’m here to help facilitate that innate connection to wellness by gently reminding the body of what it already knows. I believe in holistic care and love working as part of a team with your other health care providers to achieve optimal care and results.

BreAnne Marcucci, ARNP


A Northwest native, I began my pursuit of higher education at Seattle University, earning a degree in international studies. It was not until working in education and a year travelling abroad in Latin America that I discovered my true passion in healthcare. I completed my master of science in nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Pacific Lutheran University. Primary care nursing is the perfect union of my interests: people, science and holistic medicine.

During my clinical experience, I fell in love with working with women and infants and sought out further specialized training in lactation and breastfeeding support. I believe that breastfeeding is the first preventive health measure a family can take in the care of their newborn and in the promotion of healthy postpartum recovery. After specialized training and dedicated hours serving as a lactation consultant at a local inpatient and outpatient setting, I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and now dedicate much of my practice to science-based, gentle and sincere breastfeeding and postpartum support. In addition to this specialty training, I have experience in primary care and pediatrics which aids my care for the family as a whole. In my free time, I am absolutely immersed in the transition of motherhood as I care for my 3 month old baby boy with my husband of 8 years. The experience of childbirth, breastfeeding and ongoing postpartum recovery have only grown my passion for working with women and infants during this complex and vulnerable time. My other loves include enjoying the outdoors, hiking, paddleboarding, and spending time with my many local family members.

I am so excited to be a part of Eastside Total Health and Lactation!

I am passionate about health, especially prevention of disease, and can think of no better area to focus on than mothers and their newborns. I am happy to return to my roots, while adding powerful healing tools from the Energy Medicine world—a world I did not know existed when I entered nursing school.

In 1986, I graduated from Georgetown University’s School of Nursing and have spent the last 3 decades working as a nurse in various heath care settings including; University of Washington’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Public Health Nursing in Seattle, Overlake Hospital’s Women’s Clinic as a postpartum follow-up nurse and lactation consultant and in the Renton School District as a school nurse.

In 2006, I began learning about Energy Medicine after being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and debilitating back pain. Within a few years, I not only healed my symptoms, but along the way I became a Reiki Master, Yi Ren Medical Qi Gong Practitioner, a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, and Holistic Health Coach.

My search for improved health empowered me to help others transform their own chronic pain and energy depletion. I have seen amazing transformations including lifting chronic anxiety, depression and physical pain.

My goal is to facilitate your healing journey by helping you better understand where your stress is coming from and teaching you tools to let it go.

As Biologist Bruce Lipton states, “Most illness is just stress from not living in harmony.”

I look forward to supporting you in exploring new ways to improve your health, vitality and happiness.

Hi there! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor specializing in Women’s issues and life transitions. I am so happy to have my counseling practice at Eastside Total Health & Lactation. During times of transition or change it is helpful to have support. Motherhood (and Fatherhood) is one of those times. I believe that raising up ourselves and our children takes place in community. This is the main reason I am excited to be here at ETHL to work with you. As a society we have become more isolated than ever before. We need connection but often our family and friends may be unable to take on that role. It is in these moments of needed connection during many of life events where I can help.

I believe having someone to talk with is invaluable. This is the relationship that I would like to provide. Someone safe to share in the newness both the sorrows and joys. I care about your emotional and interpersonal health. I hope to help you unpack the unpleasant stuff you are feeling. I want to help you find relief. Let’s create a life boat together and steer towards buoyancy. Treading water is fine for a time but buoyancy creates the ability to rest when you need it. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

My Background and Education:

Therapeutic Approach:

My theory of practice is Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). IPT has been empirically proven to be an effective treatment for mood disorders / depression, anxiety, eating disorders and relationship disturbances. This theory and practice is grounded in attachment theory and borrows from Cognitive Behavioral and Family Systems theory. I work one-on-one or with families to support positive parenting, emotional regulation, insight and flexibility in life. I will partner with you to create a treatment plan that meets your goals. I hope to support and encourage you in finding solutions for the challenges you may be facing. I believe in our potential for growth and importance of interpersonal connection.
