"I love delivering babies, talking with women in clinic, operating and seeing my patients improve after treatment."
Dr. Stenson is passionate about helping women improve the quality of their lives. She focuses on listening carefully and understanding her patients’ needs as they change over time. She aims to offer informed guidance to enhance health, identify the root causes of any disease, and provide the best treatment possible when necessary.
Born in Northern Minnesota, Dr. Stenson recently moved to Oregon from Los Angeles to be closer to nature and family. She chose OHSU as an academic institution that leads the state in medical advances while prioritizing compassionate, loving care for patients.
Her medical interests include teaching, global women's health, integrative medicine, pregnancy care, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, vulvar health, sexual health, and gynecologic health in cancer survivors.

In her spare time Dr. Stenson enjoys hiking, running, yoga, spending time with her puppy and family, cooking, camping, and traveling.
PREGNANCY & CHILDBIRTH PHILOSOPHY: “I emphasize wellness in pregnancy and advocate for patients to pursue healthy lifestyle practices that will optimize health.
