Hormonal disorders

PMS, PCOS, menopause, and hypothyroidism are just a few of the hormonal issues that individuals may experience. My focus is on understanding the whole person as I assist my clients—identifying the root cause of their symptoms and developing a holistic treatment plan.

Common triggers can be various life events, both significant and minor, such as stress, trauma, work life, and overall lifestyle. Together, we assess your entire life situation and provide you with the necessary tools to regain a sense of well-being.

I aim to assist those facing problems today, who may not have received the appropriate help, by equipping them with the tools needed to achieve their goals—whether it be conceiving, navigating through menopause, or recovering from exhaustion.

Below, you can read about various hormonal disorders that I help clients with on a daily basis, along with the most common symptoms. If you find yourself relating to any of these, you are warmly welcome to contact us for an initial free consultation.
