I teach the Creighton Model System, which is a mucus-only method. Couples can use it to achieve or avoid pregnancy. Women can use it to learn more about their fertility and to identify issues with their cycle. Specially trained medical professionals (NaPro medical consultants) can help them address these issues in a way that works cooperatively with the female body.

I went on my own journey of learning more about irregularities in my cycle while I was single. I was frustrated that doctors wouldn't listen to my concerns about my cycle. They offered to prescribe birth control and just told me to wait until I wanted to conceive. I wanted to get to the root of these issues to improve my own health and to hopefully making conceiving easier in the future. That's when I decided to chart my cycle with Creighton. I saw a NaPro (Natural Procreative Technology) doctor who listened to my concerns and included me in my own treatment plan. My husband and I now use the system and were blessed to be able to conceive shortly after our wedding. We lost our first baby to a miscarriage but are currently expecting our rainbow baby in the spring.

After a wonderful experience learning Creighton from my practitioner and working with my NaPro doctor, I knew I wanted to teach Creighton to other women and couples. It combines my education in biology and my passions for teaching and women's health. Since I am recently married, I love teaching engaged couples. I also enjoy helping women and couples to navigate issues with their cycles and to find the compassionate and cooperative medical care that they deserve.

Creighton works for all cycles (long, regular, irregular, post-pill, etc.) and for all phases of a woman's reproductive life. All follow up meetings are individualized to your particular cycle and where you are at in the learning process. I love to see my clients learn more about their bodies and cycles and gain confidence in charting and using the system.
