About Me

Welcome! I have been passionately learning about women’s health for over 15 years, seeking to better understand how things like diet, stress, sleep, movement, joy, sensuality, and confidence affect our reproductive health. 

 

What I have found is that body literacy and fertility awareness are the keystones to overall health and, sadly, often the missing parts of the conversation. No one nutrition or exercise protocol is right for everyone and to assume so does us all a disservice; Every body has its own story to tell, and our menstrual cycle health directly reflects that story. All we need to do is learn to listen.

 

I am a Justisse College trained Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner and Fertility Awareness Educator, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher, and hold a Bachelors of Science from the University of Guelph in Reproductive Biology and Nutrition. I am also the creatrix of Her Mala, a line of mala jewellery inspired by the feminine.

And, above all, I am a mother.

A daughter.

A sister.

A wife.

And a friend.

 

In my practice I pull from my knowledge base to offer you an integrative and holistic approach to wellness. I create a safe space for my clients, free from bias or judgement, that supports reproductive freedom and body literacy. 

 

My role is to educate & support you in making informed choices when it comes to your fertility & reproductive health. If you are looking for a natural (and effective) birth control option, to improve your menstrual health, connect with your body on a deeper level, or achieve/maintain a healthy pregnancy, I am here to help.

About Fertility Awareness Method (FAM)

The Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) is a system of tracking your menstrual cycle using daily observations of specific biomarkers of the reproductive cycle including cervical mucus, basal body temperature (and optional cervical positioning), as well as signs that are unique to your body. 

 

By charting this information you will know, on a daily basis, whether you are fertile or not, and can use this information to make informed decisions about when to have (or not have) sex based on your actual chances of getting pregnant.

 

Your charts can be used as a highly reliable method of contraception, to aid in conception for those trying to conceive, and to monitor and manage reproductive health, the 5th Vital Sign of lifelong health.

 

FAM practice also supports the development of menstrual cycle and body literacy encouraging a positive and respectful relationship with your body, regardless of age or sexual activity, making it an invaluable tool even for very young adolescents.
