My practice has naturally evolved into helping women with PCOS as I began to see an influx of clients who were frustrated with the lack of support and guidance they experience while trying to manage PCOS.
Many clients with PCOS experience:
- Insulin resistance leading to carbohydrate cravings
- Mood swings, lack of energy and fatigue
- Unwanted hair growth
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Unexpected weight gain
- Depression or anxiety
The diagnosis of PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) can be very frustrating as women are often given a prescription for Metformin and told to lose weight. Weight is not a behavior, and losing weight with PCOS can be incredibly difficult. Studies show us that many symptoms can be improved independent of weight loss, which is why I focus on health-promoting behavior change with clients.
There are many nutrition and lifestyle modifications that can be made to increase energy levels, decrease carbohydrate cravings and improve fertility. My goal is to create a safe space full of empathy and compassion as we work together to come up with a treatment plan to help you feel your best.
