I’m so glad you’re here.

If you’ve spent your entire life from menarche (first period) to now dreading that time of the month, living with PMS and period pain, missed cycles, side effects of hormonal birth control and hating your body…

If you’ve beenĀ  diagnosed with PCOS, trying to conceive for more than six months and feel that your body has betrayed you…

If you want to learn how to have a healthy, pain-free ovulatory cycle…

If you want to experience a pleasurable pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum…

If you want to learn how to build a life and business that honors your cycle…

If you want to build a business that centers motherhood…

You’re in the right place.

When I self-diagnosed my PCOS in 2017 I was in the midst of recovering from burnout and underearning having spent over ten years building community around food in Brooklyn and beyond. I was living with a host of symptoms, including GERD, chronic fatigue, unexplained weight gain, bursitis, hirsutism, thinning hair, and irregular menstrual cycles.

Something had to change.

PCOS affects 1 in 8 women but few connect the dots between their symptoms and this condition because most only find out about it when they are trying to conceive and can’t. Periods and fertility are for much more than making babies. Fertiilty is a vital sign, with menstruation serving as the barometer of overall health in the previous cycle.

At the time, I wasn’t looking to become pregnant any time soon and I didn’t want the traditional medical treatment, so I used my health coach training to learn more about PCOS and women’s health. I committed to balancing my hormones and making holistic lifestyle changes.

That led to me the field of birthwork, where I learned that periods, pregnancy, and postpartum operate on a continuum.

Whether you’re trying to conceive or already have children, the health of your menstrual cycle plays an integral role in your life, right on through to menopause. Unchecked symptoms can lead to long-term gastrointestinal problems, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Women rarely receive comprehensive education about menstrual cycles, so they move through the months and years in pain, taking hormones to find relief, or removing their wombs entirely.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

I’m an integrative nutrition and women’s health coach, full spectrum doula, massage therapist and mentor.
