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...


June Fertility Retreat - Feeling Like a Failure

Oh, let me count the ways...

As a woman
   As a human
      As a partner
          As a daughter

To myself
   To others


Am I hitting a nerve?

I know. I've seen women in their darkest places. I want to cry when I think about some of the hard, hard, hard places I've seen women have to go. Places they never dreamed of. Have you gone to these places?  Do you worry you are on your way?

I am more sorry than I can say. And while it is easy for me to be kind and compassionate, I know it is not usually easy for you to do it for yourself.

Let me help you learn how. Let me help you know that you are not alone. Let me validate that your feelings are real and true and so very very hard.
