Perimenopause Holistic Wellness Plan

Navigate perimenopause with confidence.

Ease your symptoms, smooth your transition, and set yourself up for vibrant health moving into the future.

“Nobody talks about it”

That’s the concern I hear most often when I talk with women about their experiences with perimenopause. I hear this far more frequently than anything else, including some of the most common symptoms like heavy bleeding, insomnia, anxiety, and even hot flashes.

Maybe the lack of information and lack of discussion has left you feeling alone and overwhelmed. Perhaps you’re wondering if what you’re experiencing is normal or if something is very wrong. What you do know is that you want to approach perimenopause in a way that honors this important life transition and works with your body’s innate wisdom

About the Perimenopause Health and Wellness Plan

The Perimenopause Wellness Review includes a 1 ½  hour meeting where we have an in-depth discussion about your  experiences with perimenopause, your health concerns and health history, nutrition, lifestyle, environment, and social support. I will provide an initial plan to get you started that includes a customized herbal protocol and one or two nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. We’ll meet again in two to four weeks for a 1 hour follow up to make adjustments, answer your questions, and discuss next steps.

You will leave feeling confident and supported in your perimenopausal transition, knowing that you have a plan and a partnership you can count on.

The Perimenopause Wellness Plan costs $225 and includes:

 

Initial consultation

One follow up consultation

Personalized wellness plan

Custom herbal protocol*

*Cost for herbs is separate

How it Works

Case Review & Health History

Once we have decided to work together you will fill out a Health Questionnaire and provide recent Blood Work and relevant medical records, if they are available.

I will conduct a thorough analysis of your health questionnaire, blood work & medical records and form a set of initial finding

The Perimenopause Holistic Wellness Plan

The plan includes the Initial Wellness Consultation and one 60 minute follow up consultation, a personalized wellness plan, and customized herbal protocol. Please see below for more information.

Initial Wellness Consultation

We will discuss your health concerns, medical history, health questionnaire, blood work, my initial findings and possible recommendations & strategies to achieve your wellness goals

Follow-up Wellness Consultation

​We will assess your progress toward your goals and make appropriate adjustments to your personalized wellness plan and herbal formulas, and discuss next steps.

Personalized Wellness Plan

You will receive a personalized set of herbal, dietary & lifestyle recommendations, educational resources & handouts to support you in achieving your wellness goals. 

Herbal formulas

Your herbal blend/s are custom formulated specifically for you and are compounded using the highest quality herbs at the  The Herban Pharm.  The herbs  are  an  additional  expense paid directly  to  the  dispensary. I will  consider  your  budget  when  formulating.

 

If you would like more information before you make a commitment, please schedule a 15 minute exploratory session to see how we can work together to reach your wellness goals.

Schedule a free exploratory session

During a free 15-min. phone consultation we will explore your health concerns and how we might work together to help you reach your wellness goals. During this session we will decide if we are a good fit for working together. I will send a recommendation for getting started and, if we decide to work together, an initial plan for moving forward

I’m Renata. I’m a clinical herbalist specializing in supporting women through the perimenopausal transition and beyond. I love working with women who are working for change. You’re a special group -  motivated, determined, and willing to peel back the layers, look at the tough stuff and do what you need to take care of yourself. I believe you’re working hard to bring about meaningful change in the world and supporting you brings a larger sense of purpose my to work.

I have a Master of Science in Therapeutic Herbalism and a Post Masters Certificate in Clinical Herbalism from Maryland University of Integrative Health, and I’ve been working with women in perimenopause right from the beginning, since starting student clinic over seven years ago. I’ve helped many women ease their symptoms, smooth the transition, learn how to take care of themselves in the context of new health concerns like bone health, cardiovascular health, and brain health; and decide if they need to seek collaborative care. I’ve also supported them as they wrestle with the deeper, larger questions that often emerge as they move into a new phase of life (Yes, herbs can help with that too!). If you’re going through perimenopause I’d love to work with you too.

Sliding Scale Pricing

Why a sliding scale?

Simply put, I recognize  that inequality and injustice are inherent in a capitalist economy and, to the best of my ability, I want to eliminate finances as a barrier to accessing services. 

The self directed model calls upon us all to participate together in a just and equitable pricing model. Guidance is offered to help you choose the right price tier for you  based on the economic realities of your life.

 

Sacrifice vs. Hardship

​I would like to share these thoughts from Alexis J. Cunningfolk on hardship and sacrifice to guide you as you consider choosing your rate.

“If paying for a class, product, or service would be difficult, but not detrimental, it qualifies as a sacrifice. You might have to cut back on other spending in your life (such as going out to dinner, buying coffee, or a new outfit), but this will not have a long term harmful impact on your life. It is a sacred sacrifice in order to pursue something you are called to do. If, however, paying for a class, product, or service would lead to a harmful impact on your life, such as not being able to put food on the table, pay rent, or pay for your transportation to get to work, then you are dealing with hardship. Folks coming from a space of hardship typically qualify for the lower end of the sliding scale… Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities.”

Please choose the fee tier that feels right to you. I will not question your choice.
