Hi! I’m Mary, and welcome to Teacup Wellness!

If you are reading this page, you are probably struggling with an ongoing health challenge related to “wacked- out” hormones and confusing health symptoms.

You are probably feeling frustrated, depressed, overweight and like you will never feel like your “old-self” again!

I’ve been there, I get it!

In 2007, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. At the time, I was chronically stressed and really not taking very good care of myself. I was more focused on my kids and my job, putting myself last. As long as they got the right food and exercise each day- I was doing my job. In the meantime, I would just grab a quick bagel, bowl of pasta or cereal and continue on my “not so “Mary” way”.

I walked around with a constant pit in my stomach, not realizing this wasn’t normal and was actually damaging my body, mind and relationships.

I had chronic allergies and insomnia which was the “norm” for me. I would pop a pill and not give it a second thought. I believed, that is how you deal with your body. You have a symptom- headache, cramps, sleep issue, you name it, and there would be a medication that “so would magically solve” your problem!

I also had a history of hormonal related issues: acne as a teen and into my 20’s, painful periods, endometriosis, infertility and breast cancer. I was known as the “allergy queen” in my HS yearbook! I woke up every morning with over 50 used Kleenex on the floor next to my bed.

And so I got my “wake up” call. A little louder then I wanted, but I guess this was the “kick in the butt” I needed to start looking at my own self-care. I thought I was so healthy. I never had a weight issue and exercised regularly. So what gives? But my body was giving me a different message!

The days that followed were a blur. I mindlessly went through the cancer treatments as prescribed by the specialists. After all, they were the experts and knew “best”.

By the end of this process though, I slowly came out of my fog and started questioning what was really going on. I realized no one was talking to me about diet and lifestyle. I knew enough about diet, exercise and stress to understand there was some connection here.

My doctor claimed she didn’t know why people get cancer (or any disease for that matter), it wasn’t my fault or anything I did, so I should just go on with my life and not worry. “They would do the worrying for me.”

Nice sentiment, but I knew I needed to take back control of my own health and no one could do it for me. I went home, quit my job (I realize not everyone can do this) and went back to school to study integrative health coaching. My family was also beginning to experience their own health challenges related to the side effects of medication over prescription, diet and stress. They were becoming a full time job!

I began my studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC and I haven’t stop learning since. I am a certified Cancer Coach and studied with Replenish PDX completing their digestive intensive program and the Hashimoto Institute Specialist program. I am an avid researcher and reader of all things healthy. I am your go- to resource for trying to dig deep and figure out what is really going on “under the hood” and what can be done about it.

You know what? As I went through my studies, and slowly changed my own food plan and figured out what my body needed and was crying for- my allergies went away! My energy soared! I was no longer chronically stressed, bloated and grumpy! I slept through the night! How could that be? I thought I was doomed to a life of sleep deprivation, worry and Kleenex. This was amazing stuff!

I am passionate about supporting you in taking back control or your health and educating you about what is really going on in your body. The answers aren’t found in your medicine cabinet and there is so much more you can do to overcome your health obstacles and get your life back!

I love hearing the joy in the voices of my clients as they realize there is hope and they really can beat it!

My lupus inflammation marker (CRPhs – which is what my doctors have monitored closely) went from 136 in March of 2015 down to 1 in May of 2016. This has calmed many of the problems that were cropping up because of the lupus/inflammation. My hair has started to come back and I have had little to no joint pain. My low grade fevers have also ceased. The digestive issues I was having such an awful time with have stopped!There simply aren’t words to say just how this, and you, have impacted my life. You have changed my life- Completely. I feel better than I felt BEFORE I was diagnosed with lupus. I’m not afraid to wake up in the morning and guess what new ache or pain I was going to have to deal with that day. Because I don’t have them! I’m confident that as long as I continue down this path I will be able to play and keep up with my boys, be able to work full time and just plain feel good.

I have Hashimoto’s and other autoimmune issues that I work on with Mary. In a few months, with Mary’s support and guidance I have changed my diet and feel and look better than I have in a long time. She helps you map out a plan that is realistic and easy to follow based on what your specific needs require. The other really cool thing about this, is that Mary and I do this all virtually…over the phone, email/online. I’m on the West Coast and she’s on the East Coast! It’s easy to connect and there really isn’t anyone around my area that does what she does…and I live in the mecca of “healthy” living.

Mary is an amazing health coach who really works to bring all the pieces of the puzzle together, and address your health on every level….physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I have been sick for years with Hashimoto’s among other health issues. Mary has helped connect me with the proper healthcare providers which has been an immense help as I have spent years searching for the proper providers for me that want to do more than just offer me another pill to mask my problems. Her knowledge of food and nutrition and helping to identify what works for me and what MY body needs is just amazing. Mary’s help, guidance, support and knowledge are just immeasurable!!!!!

Mary has been a tremendous help to me with my stomach issues. I would not be on my way to the best health ever if it was not for the time I have spent with Mary. She is organized, timely, and very informed about all aspects of my issues. Mary never leaves a question unanswered, she takes the time necessary to fulfill every issue.

I had been trying for five years to lose weight before I got in touch with Mary. In those five years I tried calorie counting, juicing, not eating and over exercising, acupuncture, Reiki, reflexology and who knows what else. I would lose a little bit of weight and then when I was tired of starving I would binge eat myself right back to where I was. When I called Mary in 2014 I was all doom and gloom, telling her all the reasons why she couldn’t help me – but she decided to try anyway. My first problem was that I wanted to lose weight, and I realize now that my health and how I feel are so much more important than the number on the scale. I started the detox kit with support, and was amazed how how good I felt after only a few days. I had more energy as my body got rid of the garbage I’d been filling it with over the years as well as feeling better mentally and emotionally! The food plan is not calorie restricted (there is no calorie counting!), and feeling satiated after I ate was a wonderful feeling. For me, feeling satisfied after I eat is critical to my success.
By eating from the extensive foods allowed by the meal plan, I was able to eat what I liked, create my own meals and recipes, and I never felt hungry or deprived. As a bonus, I dropped two sizes and kept them off. Mary was incredibly supportive as I went along on my journey, even if I wasn’t perfect. This is a lifestyle change, not a diet, and the guidance was a tremendous help to me in making that change. Now I’m healthier and my kids are too!

Mary is one of the most knowledgeable health and wellness coaches I have ever met. When I first heard her speak about Hashimoto’s and overall well-being, her passion immediately caught my attention. You can’t fake genuine passion and Mary is coming from a place of first-hand experience. I have recommended her services to others and feel confident she will change their lives fro the better!

I’m so glad that I met Mary and went forward with the nutrition coaching. I’m a person who is pretty knowledgeable about health, but I needed some guidance and support. Mary is a great listener and a very caring and compassionate person. She was able to help me choose the right nutrition choices to address health concerns I was dealing with. There’s a lot of healing that can come from nutrition choices rather than taking a medication.
She was also able to connect me with the right Primary care provider to get necessary tests taken to get more answers. I recommend her services frequently because she helped me change my health! I highly recommend her services, if your dealing with any health conditions and you want to help your body heal naturally through healthy nutrition choices she is the person you want to talk to.

I am so impressed with all the knowledge that Mary has with Hashimotos and well as many other health conditions. Her passion to help her clientsis so impressive. I would not hesitate to refer her to anyone who is struggling with Hashimotos or other many other related illnesses. Mary can really help with which labs to get to get a clear picture with what is going on and not waste money on unnecessary testing.
