My Story

Parenting was something I once thought I could just skip—“I’ll just have a dog or 2!”

Eventually, I did become a parent – a scary thing at the time for someone who did not feel she could manage herself very well – so how then could I be a good enough parent!

Parenting humbled me and broke my heart open in ways I never would have imagined. It required and grew my courage—no more hiding and playing small.  

When I needed to advocate for my children's health, I had conversations with strangers, confronted Doctors and spoke my truth like I never had before.

In taking a stand for my children’s health, we found a remarkable way for them to thrive. I also found a strength, love and determination I would never have thought was inside me!

Fast forward 25 years.  

I’m holistically-oriented, pretty clear that menopause is a natural transition a woman’s body goes thru, not the big deal people seem to be making about it.

I felt angry at people who treated it like a disease, or a miserable experience until…

Suddenly my brain went offline, my moods and energy were one big unpredictable roller coaster.

For 2 years my life felt messier than ever, my memory went  awol, my self-esteem tanked.  I wanted to run away and hide in a cave.  Bit by bit  I discovered ways to befriend my changing self, relearning to love and accept who I was morphing into.

From the physical, mental and emotional symptoms to the void of being between 2 different versions of who you thought you were and were supposed to be.

The changes are unsettling at best, and often deeply disturbing.

I will walk it with you so that you can:

Find your breathing space

Learn how to be a good friend to yourself

Connect with what does inspire and motivate you

Align with who you want to be / become

Stop defaulting to an old version of you.

Discover what you choose to consciously create now in your life

Enrich your relationships.
