Who I help

Whether you simply want to learn about what's coming or are already in the thick of the menopause transition, I'm here to support, educate, and coach you through it. 



I help women who are in the 5-15 year period of hormonal changes leading up to menopause. These hormonal changes impact every system of the body. This is a crucial time when education and support can make all the difference.



Technically speaking, menopause is the date that marks 12 months from a woman's final menstrual period. However, menopause symptoms can still negatively impact a woman's life even after her period has stopped. I'm here to help.


Post Menopause

As menopause symptoms decrease, I work with post-menopausal women to help them shift their health and wellness priorities and implement strategies to ensure heart and bone health for healthy aging and longevity.

Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don't. 

Years ago I was habitually making choices that led to not feeling great in my body. I knew I could do better, but I also wasn’t feeling like I wanted to expend energy making needed changes (feeling empowered to make changes is hard when the outcome of your choices is low energy and poor sleep). Then I had a realization that changed everything: either way takes effort.

Mayo Clinic Studies Benefits of Health Coaching 

Did you know that the Mayo Clinic did a study looking at the effectiveness of health coaching?  And what they found was pretty darn amazing!

“The primary aims of the study were to examine potential improvements in quality of life including physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual functioning, as well as depressive symptoms and perceived stress levels.  The secondary aim was to examine the maintenance of potential improvements over time.”

Are you missing out?


Each week I send out a newsletter, and each week I get replies from subscribers who thank me. They say things like:

"I never read email but I always read yours!"

"Your email made me teary this week. How did you know it was just what I needed to hear? Thank you!"

"Your newsletter is SO informative, helpful and fun to read. Thank you for all the effort you put into it!"

Even my own father - a 69 year old man - wrote to tell me:

"These emails are very informative. Congrats on shedding some light on a confusing subject."

(He might be a little biased, so take his compliment with a grain of salt.)

THE POINT IS ... if you're not subscribed, you're definitely missing out.
