Have you been told that when things change during midlife, it’s just something you have to deal with?

Have you been told that part of getting older is that things don’t work the way they used to? That it’s natural?

I see you. You’re working so hard in your business or your career, taking care of everyone around you but yourself.

You’re fighting hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, and depression, riding it out because you’re too busy to stop and take care of yourself.

You deserve to be seen… and supported in what you’re experiencing and more than that, seen for the radiant woman you are in the world.

You might not be feeling radiant right now. You might be cursing about your dry, irritated skin that can also be oily at the same time

(How is that fair?).
Your luscious hair is thinning but also sprouting on your face, and honestly, you’re just not ready for that yet.

There’s a laundry list of other things, too…hyperpigmentation. Wrinkles. Jowls. You bruise like a peach, and your body takes so much longer to heal.

Then there’s sex….You’re dry and uncomfortable, and you don’t want it like you used to. You don’t even want to talk about it because it feels awkward and embarrassing. You wonder if you’re normal or if there’s something wrong with you.

You’re aging and you feel invisible, or maybe with all of the undesirable changes, you are wishing you were.

The truth is you’re not alone.
Close to three quarters of women will experience symptoms including hot flashes, mood changes, and sleep problems that hurt their quality of life.

And what’s worse, most women don’t get help. The reality is that 100% of us go through menopause, while only 7% of women experiencing symptoms ever get treatment.

They just wonder what happened and why they feel so crappy.

So let’s talk about hormones.

Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone all decrease as women age. Progesterone begins to decrease in our mid-late 30’s which is what contributes to the increasing anxiety, sleep disturbances, and period irregularities. As estrogen decreases, testosterone may not decrease at the same rate. Your adrenal glands also produce some male hormones throughout your life, and it’s this imbalance of hormones that causes the appearance of some male secondary sex characteristics, like coarse facial hair.

Estrogen is essential for skin hydration because it increases production of glycosaminoglycans, promotes an increased production of sebum, increases water retention, and improves barrier function of the stratum corneum. 

That’s doctor speak for “When you don’t have as much estrogen, you get really dry, and your body doesn’t make the things your skin needs to look, feel, and act the way it used to.”

Collagen decreases by 30% in the first 5 years of menopause, and by 2% every year for the next 20 years. That’s partly why skin starts to sag, and you get jowling and wrinkles. The other reason is your elastin deteriorates and fragments. Your skin thins, too. It’s a lot going on at the same time. Just like your life.

Maybe you’ve tried to fix it with botox, fillers, or cosmetic procedures, but you’re still overwhelmed, stressed, and exhausted.

You don’t have to just deal with it. There is a proven method that can help you start feeling better – and fast.

I’m a dual-board certified dermatologist who has been in medicine for over 20 years and a menopause specialist dedicated to serving women just like you through one of the biggest changes any of us will ever go through.

I’m not here to tell you I can help you defy aging – I’m here to help you really enjoy midlife and show up the way you want to in the world.

My mission is to help women feel empowered to make midlife the best time of their lives.

There’s no reason to push pause on your life just because you are in menopause.

I am in this phase of life myself, so I get it. I walk the walk of my own approach, taking bio-identical hormones, working on mindset, taking midlife by storm.

Feeling comfortable and confident in my skin is something I’m learning to do on the daily, and I want to help other women feel the same.

My Story

After I hurt myself running, everything changed. What was supposed to be 31 miles turned into 35 because I got lost. Exhausted and in pain, I was never so excited to see a finish line in my life. That experience taught me so much about resilience, failing forward, power of community, and how to be still because I wound up tearing my hip after running my longest ultra marathon.

I didn’t realize the high of finishing that grueling race and the happiness on my face would soon be replaced with crushing lows, sadness, frustration, and shame.

I thought it was just the injury, but as it turned out, it was so much more. My health began to fall apart. My hormones went out of whack. I was bloated. I was constipated. My energy tanked. I had anxiety.

No matter how much I exercised, my weight didn’t budge. My breasts hurt and my period was out of whack. My sex drive took a total nose dive and my relationship with my husband suffered.

I didn’t feel like myself anymore. I wasn’t comfortable or confident in my skin or my body. I was going from doctor to doctor, getting so many labs and just taking pill after pill, masking symptoms and creating new ones. I tried magic herbal remedies and supplements. I tried it all.

“It’s just a part of getting older,” they said.

But my symptoms were out of control and I felt hopeless and helpless until…

I became my own client. I threw away all the supplements and ditched all my one size fits all plans. I seriously leaned into healing my own body.

I learned 3 super critical secrets that were the key to my success in healing my body, calming the anxiety, regaining my energy, and reclaiming my life.

I was making really positive shifts and many of my symptoms were improving, but something was still missing.

Finally, my doctors honed in on my hormones and did a comprehensive screening. What I learned changed everything – my hormones had likely been out of balance for years and now I was in PERI-menopause.

Adding bio-identical hormones to all of the other changes was the missing piece.

I totally rebalanced my body, healing the laundry list of things that were going wrong.

I want that for you, too.

These days, I love helping my clients radiate their beauty inside and out.
