Hey, I'm Nina!
I'm a certified Fertility Awareness Educator, Hormone Coach, and Reiki Practitioner.
My story might be a lot like yours...
I know exactly what it feels like to struggle with hormone imbalance that affects your life.
From chronic fatigue and anxiety, to extremely painful/heavy periods, my menstrual cycle was beginning to control my life. I experimented with various forms of birth control to support my symptoms, but I never felt quite right while on the pill.
The height of my hormonal struggles was during my years as a middle school choir director.
Traveling between 2 school buildings, teaching over 500 students, working on a masters degree, and planning a choir tour to NYC that same summer, it's fair to say I was a tornado of stress.
I was running on large iced coffees and protein bars to get me through the day.
Can you relate?
Eventually my body just couldn't keep up.
My chronic stress had turned into uncontrollable anxiety. I was waking up every morning feeling completely out of body and I didn’t feel like myself at all.
Soon, I began struggling with inconsistent and extremely painful periods, cystic acne, and chronic fatigue. I felt absolutely miserable and I knew it was time to go see my doctors for help.
But like many women struggling with their health and hormones, it’s hard to find the answers we are looking for.
I left my appointments with a prescription for anxiety medication and a recommendation for another form of birth control to boot.
I vividly remember thinking, “This can’t be my ONLY answer. There is something much deeper going on underneath the surface.”
That was the moment that led me towards Fertility Awareness Education and focusing on all things women's health and hormones.
I couldn’t believe how much I never learned about the women’s body and how the menstrual cycle actually operated!
I finally understood how the pill functioned in my body and I learned about the importance of my natural hormones and the 4-phases of the menstrual cycle.
For the first time in my life, I felt such a deep love and connection for my body and her cyclic nature.
Women are powerful and we can learn to harness the beauty of our cycle to live the vibrant lives we desire.
Which is exactly why I created the Healing Hormones Approach.
I was filled with a deep passion to share this information with women everywhere and to help them live in flow with their cycle, understand their body, and achieve optimized fertility.
Fast forward to the present day, I am now the mama of a spirited little Aries girl and I coach women full-time on all things Fertility Awareness Method and hormones.
I would love nothing more than to help you connect to your body and menstrual cycle in such a beautiful way, too.
