Welcome to my blog!

I'm an acupuncturist, teacher, fertility specialist, patient centered advocate, mom, activist and more! This blog is a place for me to write down the things on my mind, the things I discuss over and over, and the things I find helpful, interesting, and inspiring all in the hope that someone else out there, maybe YOU, will find some of these things to be helpful, interesting and inspiring too. I love learning, I love sharing, and I am passionate about helping others lead more balanced, fertile, and healthy lives - while trying to do the same myself. So here goes... The Blogging Life...


Fertility Retreat - The Stories We Tell Ourselves (and other lies, falsehoods, and rottenness)

"If I adopt I won't love my child quite as much."
"I am less of a woman if I don't have a child."
"A real family has more than one child."
"My husband secretly wishes he wouldn't have married me."
"I'll never be happy if this doesn't work."
"An adopted child will have so many issues."
"I'm going to ruin a child's life because I choose..."

Sound familiar?

Sometimes far worse than the insensitive, misguides, and hurtful comments that we hear from others are the ones we tell ourselves.

Yet we all do it in one way or another.

What to do when logic and fear are duking it out for hold over your heart & mind?
