I've been teaching Fertility Awareness since 2001, and in that time have taught hundreds of people to confidently chart their cycles for pregnancy prevention, pregnancy achievement, and to gain insight into their health, sexuality, or fertility. I have also taught sex ed to teenagers and given talks and trainings to dozens of health care professionals. Fertility Awareness is tied to some of our most intimate concerns, such as sexuality, fertility, relationships, childbearing, and health. Trained as a social worker, I employ a highly individualized, client-centered approach that respects your values and sets goals that reflect your specific needs and circumstances. That's why I offer individual consultations, and not pre-set "packages.” Nor do I tell you what type of health care you may want to pursue, or what choices to make around contraception, pregnancy achievement, or anything else. My job is to educate and empower you in your fertility awareness practice so that it works for you, easily and without confusion. I respect all types of relationships, all gender identities and sexualities, and try to be culturally competent and anti-racist in my work. Evidence informs my practice, as does a sex-positive, body-positive approach. I will meet you where you are, and help you get to where you want to go!
