About Us


Aaron Kromhout, M.D.

I am so happy to welcome you to Creating Harmony Women’s Healthcare. My staff and I have worked hard to create a center for women to receive the healthcare they deserve. At Creating Harmony we take the time to listen to you because we care about you. Our role is to help a woman understand the choices she has in her healthcare so that she can choose the option that best suits her needs.

I am a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist. I was born in Santa Cruz, and raised in the Bay Area. After graduating from Yale University with a degree in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, I received my medical degree from the University of California at San Diego. From the beach I moved to the desert where I completed my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. My proximity to Tucson allowed me the unique opportunity to train with Dr. Andrew Weill in the Integrative Medicine Program at the University of Arizona. It was in Arizona that I started a family of my own and began to develop ideas about what kind of practice I might create.

Following my residency, I worked at a community health center in South Phoenix, where I served as director of the Women’s Health Department. Seeing an opportunity for a better sense of community, my family and I moved to San Luis Obispo in September 2004. Wanting something even more special, July 1st 2006 I fulfilled my vision by creating Creating Harmony.

Helen Cominos, C.N.M.

My name is Helen Cominos and I was born and raised in Salinas, CA. I worked as a nurse at San Luis Obispo General Hospital before moving to San Francisco to become a nurse midwife. I graduated from University of California San Francisco in 1994. After working in Santa Cruz and Denver, I returned to San Luis Obispo in 2002. Besides, “helping babies get born” (as my son calls my work), I enjoy hiking, cooking and spending time with my family.

Lisa Winick, C.N.M.

Hi, my name is Lisa Winick. I am thrilled to be a part of Creating Harmony Women’s Healthcare. I have been interested in midwifery since 1989, when I apprenticed in a birth center in Taos, New Mexico for two years doing birth center and home births. I graduated from the Columbia University School of Nursing in New York City with a bachelors of science and masters in nursing in 1995. When I finished my degree I worked at the Ryan Community Health Center in New York City for five years as a certified nurse midwife. Two days before 9/11/01, I moved to California from New York City. I came to California because I loved the hot springs, the weather, and I had family here. At that time I took a position with another local physician. Working mostly at General Hospital we were able to offer water births. In May 2004, on Mother’s Day, I gave birth to my son, Isaiah Diego Bueno. I live in San Luis Obispo with my son, and father. My passions are my family, midwifery, yoga, going for walks on the beautiful Central Coast, farmer’s markets, and reading. Pregnancy, breast-feeding, and midwifery are some of my favorite topics of conversation. I urge you to call me if you have any questions. I would love to speak with you.
