The deep rooted history of sexism in our society has led to a rejection and fear of womanhood and all the experiences it entails. Diet culture, thin ideals, and bias in healthcare has led many of us to feel small, disempowered, and disconnected from ourselves and our bodies - despite the immense power that we, as women, hold. My work at Roots to Leaves is to help women feel empowered in their bodies and regain their connection to health and true wellness. Whether you are facing fertility challenges, diagnoses like PCOS and endometriosis, or need some extra support during your pregnancy or postpartum journey, I’m here to accompany you
As women, we are too often dismissed.
Our concerns are viewed as "dramatic."
We are told our symptoms are "normal."
And between diet culture, beauty standards, and a medicalization and fetishization of our bodies, we are often left to battle our hormone and health concerns alone.
So I want you to know that I'm here.
I hear you.
I support you.
And I trust that you know your body best.
Because to be honest, I don't have all the answers. But I believe that at the heart of it all (and with a little guidance) YOU know what you truly need.
So my goal is to create a relationship with you that meets you where you are at, empowers you with knowledge, helps you find your inner wisdom, supports you on your journey, and holds space for all that may come up.
I understand that these stages of life can be hard. I recognize that when it comes to conversations around hormone health, fertility, IVF, pregnancy, menopause and more, it can bring forward many emotions. From disappointment to excitement, loss to joy, anxiety to curiosity, I am here to help you navigate this path, offering tools of nourishment all the while.
Because I believe that in order to move forward, we need to look inward.
In order to heal a symptom, we need to look at the whole.
In order to grow tall, we first must face and tend to the wounds.
And in order to bloom and flourish, we need to plant the seeds and lay down the roots.
Sending grace and love,
