“I want my clients to know that when you are in crisis, there IS life. You have to tap into it and have someone help you through it.”  


The words of a physical “diagnosis” or “prognosis” can fall heavily upon our spirit and easily crush all hope. At age 26, doctors told me that due to my accident, I may never walk without assistance, or carry a pregnancy to term. I made the decision that I was more than my diagnosis. Compelled by my sheer determination, I did what I needed to do to get where I am today. Both my professional nursing and personal experiences provide me the wisdom to understand the pain of infertility struggles and the effects of a discouraging diagnosis. When couples feel pressure to conceive, it can be destructive to the body and spirit. Nurturing greater mind and body awareness can free couples from negativity with miraculous results.

Know that you are more than your diagnosis. I have seen the effects of health and wellness on fertility and know there is hope for everyone. Contact us today to see how fertility coaching can help you through your journey.
