We’ve got big office updates that we’re so excited to share!
We have three really fun and major announcements to share! The first two are below, the third is in the works. As soon as it’s official we’ll add it to this blog post and share it on our social media channels.
These announcements were already made through our weekly emails, so if you’re a loyal subscriber, you might already be in the know! If you’re not signed up for our weekly emails, you’re definitely missing out. Email Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her you’d like to join our community.
Now for our announcements…
1. We’re finally moving into our new office!
Can you think of a time when something didn’t go as planned?
Oh wait, that’s been all of 2020 so far…am I right!?
When I signed the lease for our new office on February 28th of this year, I had no idea that a pandemic was right around the corner.
In mid-March as my husband and I watched the news and realized what life was about to look like, I started to panic. I probably spent three days in a state of complete shock repeating “I just can’t believe something like this is even possible…” and then I would say “Blake, I just really feel like the world completely turned upside down overnight!” to which he would respond “Well, it kind of did…”
It took a few days of processing what was happening before I could really wrap my head around coming up with a game plan for functioning as a family during a pandemic. I wrote about our experience and how we managed the pandemic with a toddler and two full-time jobs during quarantine here.
While the pandemic isn’t over, we’re working towards a more sustainable form of normal in our house. Earlier this month, my husband and I decided it was time to put our son back in daycare. This decision is giving me time and space to be able to move into the new office which is super exciting and longggg overdue!
We will be seeing clients in person as soon as we feel it is safe for everyone. In the meantime, we are continuing to use Zoom video conferencing for our appointments.
Also, be sure to note our new address and new phone number (we’ve upgraded our phone system, too!)

I can already tell you this is going to be one tough little girl. After surviving cancer and chemotherapy during Andrew’s first year of life, my husband and I weren’t even sure if I would be able to have more children. And actually, in January I had lab work done that indicated I was in chemo-induced menopause. Sound unbelievable? Trust me, I wish I was making this stuff up!
I’ll be sharing my entire cancer story soon, so stay tuned for that.
Finding out I was in early menopause totally sucked – I wanted nothing more than to have more children. It’s also not good for your health for hormone levels to decline so early in life.
Once I processed the news, I pulled myself together and started taking a holistic approach. I got to work trying to understand WHY my body wasn’t producing adequate hormone levels. My first thoughts were nutrient deficiencies and inflammation.
Even though my diet has always been healthy and I’ve always kept up with a great supplement regimen, chemo is incredibly nutrient depleting. The stress and trauma that come with a cancer diagnosis are also insanely nutrient depleting. Not to mention my chemotherapy followed directly behind pregnancy and six months of exclusive breastfeeding. Both of which are very demanding on your body, requiring many nutrients.
I took a micronutrient test, and it turns out I had several nutrient deficiencies (some of the nutrients I was deficient in actually play a role in producing estrogen). Of course, I started supplementing right away. I also used LEAP/MRT to detox and reset, getting rid of any inflammation that might be distracting my body from doing what it needed to do to finish healing.
My end goal was to be able to have more children one day (you know, like in a year or two), I wasn’t expecting a literal miracle. So, imagine our surprise when we found out I was pregnant in early May!
We’re incredibly thankful, still in shock, and can’t wait to meet this sweet girl.
