IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE
Things are not how they used to be, YOU are not who you used to be, and you are ready for the kind of support you know you deserve.
Whether your cycles have changed, or still occur regularly, you suspect hormonal fluctuations are partly responsible for what is unsettling you.
Your body and hormones are changing and you need a solid strategy to help you feel well in your own skin again.
YOUR BODY AND NEEDS ARE EVOLVING, YOUR HEALTHCARE SHOULD TOO.
BEING A WOMAN IS NOT A DIAGNOSIS
While menopause is a healthy and normal life event that half of us on this planet will experience, your quality of life matters. You deserve support at any age or stage of life. You also deserve information and decision making power when it comes to how you navigate your own perimenopausal transition.
You are fed up with feeling like:
Sleep is a thing of the past
Your mood is a rollercoaster starting to affect your closest relationships
Anxiety is taking over and keeping you from doing what you love
Sex has become painful and/or your libido has vanished altogether
Your "BONUS" periods just won't give up
Your body and skin are changing and you no longer recognize yourself
Your joints are suddenly screaming at you
Your internal thermostat can't decide if you live in the Arctic or the Sahara
You are slowly losing your mind because of vague unusual sensations
You are not being offered options to address your concerns
You are ready to feel strong, confident, and grounded again. You know options exist but you have questions and need help figuring out what would be both helpful and safe for YOU. You are ready to learn about solutions or strategies that consider ALL of who you are and what you are dealing with. You are ready for a transformation.
YOU ARE ALREADY STARTING TO REIMAGINE YOUR EXPERIENCE!
"I have met myself and I am going to care for her fiercely."

NOT SURE YET?
If you are like many of my patients who have spent decades being told this time of their lives will inevitably suck but are desperately seeking support for help they aren't finding elsewhere, you are not alone. A new generation of menstruators is elevating their expectation of care around all things hormonal and I'm glad you are showing up to learn more! For those of us who have been fed the narrative the perimenopause is something we simply must grin and bear, we may hesitate to expect anything different and might not even know what parts of the experience can actually be reimagined! Many of us are also chronic givers raised in a culture of self-sacrifice and making an investment to elevate your quality of life might feel selfish or indulgent. Having concerns with this process is normal and often this first step is the hardest, but once you can finally recognize you are worth it, you can start building a life you enjoy again!
This is not like saying yes to an occasional massage or mani-pedi as "self-care". This is your life, your body, your health, your future, and your commitment to more quality time with the people you love.
