Welcome. You're here for a reason.
I'm glad you are.
Depression. Exhaustion. Anxiety. Pain. Mood swings. Frustration. Autoimmune issues. Loss of sexual desire. Body shame. Migraines. Disinterest in life. High blood pressure. Fibromyalgia. Prediabetes. Insulin resistance. Blood sugar issues. And on. And on. Does any of this sound familiar?
They are signs that your (very wise) body is speaking to you. In medicine, and as a culture, we have learned they are problems to be fixed. In this culture, we have been taught to seek answers to medical issues in the form of symptom management. If you have high blood pressure, you take a blood pressure pill. If you have migraines, you take pain meds or preventive meds. If you have heavy periods, you take birth control. If you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, you start with metformin. If your diabetes isn't well-controlled, you progress to other drugs and, unfortunately, then usually to insulin. If you have fibromyalgia, you aren't taught about the impact of your nervous system and lifestyle on your pain; you're usually given Cymbalta and Gabapentin (more pills). Then you're treated with additional meds for sleep. Then, when you complain to your doctor that you feel terrible on the meds, you're told it's all your fault because fibromyalgia possibly isn't real anyway. (it is real; I put mine into remission, but it's oh so very real. Many providers just don't know how to treat it).
The current medical model is broken.
So many "experts" out there think they have the answers. Maybe those answers didn't work for you. Maybe you find yourself resistant to following their rules, even if you suspect they might be helpful. You just don't know why you can't feel well. You don't know why you keep failing. Something inside of you knows there is a better way; you just don't know where to start.
All you do know is that you are ready for a change.
The InnerWild Wholistic Medicine & Coaching Approach
A long time in the making
I am a rebel, entirely irreverent to the current state of modern medicine when it comes to treating lifestyle and chronic health concerns. Of course, for acute emergencies, modern medicine is amazing! If we break a leg, get an infection, or have an acute heart attack, I wouldn't want to be living at another time.
That said, I don't buy into the current approach to medicine where you match a symptom with a drug. People are getting sicker and sicker and most illness is stress-related. The current medical system cannot fix this. It's time for a new way.
InnerWild is our often forgotten innate body wisdom that we use to guide healing. We remove the blocks and let the body heal. And so we begin the work of unraveling what led to the dysfunction in the first place, supporting the body with whatever it needs to return to equilibrium. We get to the root cause, which is different for each person. We order labs as needed. Sometimes other tests too - if you desire. I don't think you have to spend a fortune to heal, though.
Sometimes we use supplementation or medication; sometimes we challenge ingrained beliefs, old mindsets, or unhealthy lifestyle patterns; sometimes we introduce more play and fun. It looks different each session and for each person.
The important thing to do now is see if this is right for you. I especially encourage you to book a call if you're not used to taking up space. This is your time. We get to dive deeply into your needs.

Initial consultation is complementary
Healing happens in relationship with each other. There is never a charge to see if we are a good fit.
Root cause approach
We don't just treat symptoms; we get to the root cause of your illness.
No body shame allowed
You will never be judged because of the size or shape of your body. Gaining weight is a side effect, not a cause.
It's important that we can address the emotional pain you store in your body.
