Meet Amy

Welcome!  I’m Amy and I’m passionate about helping women heal their hormones, manage their stress, and cultivate some self-love.   My goal is to empower women with knowledge about how their bodies work, with diet and lifestyle suggestions to help their bodies function at their best, and with self-awareness to help them tune in to and listen to what their body needs.  My own journey with health has taught me so much and helped me heal my body, mind and heart.  I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned with you as we walk together on your journey to health!  Come find your beautiful balance with me today!

My Hormone Story

I’ve had hormone problems almost as long as I can remember.  Over the years I’ve dealt with everything from extremely heavy periods, acne, weight gain, and debilitating period pain, to miscarriage, exhaustion, and HPA Axis dysfunction.  When I turned to my doctors for help the only solution I was given was the Pill.  They told me this was just normal for some women.  I was desperate for relief from my symptoms, so for years I took their solution.  Eventually, I found myself wanting to get to the root of what was going on.  There had to be a better way!  I didn’t want to put bandaids on the issues anymore.  And I was tired of believing that suffering was just part of being a woman.

I’m not going to lie, it was not a quick process to get my hormones, and my body, back in balance. Over time, I learned that there are so many options and lots of ways to heal.  I found that it’s possible to address the root problem and not just cover up the symptoms.  Even though it takes time, I saw that it’s not always complicated to get your body functioning well.  Maybe even more importantly, I’ve learned to honor my body and her wisdom rather than despising her.  I recognize my body’s strength and beauty instead of seeing myself as weak or broken.  I see being a woman as a gift rather than a curse.  I’ve learned so much and picked up so many tools along my journey, and I am so excited to be able to share them with you!  If anything in my story speaks to you, reach out and let’s explore how we can do more together!
