“The symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are like a rollercoaster ride,” says Lia. “When I tell my patients, ‘no, it’s not you, it’s just a hormonal imbalance that we can correct,’ they are so relieved.” 

Her 10-plus years treating women throughout the lifespan gives her the expertise to “empower and educate women, allowing them to really know their bodies.” Lia’s own perimenopause journey helps her empathize as well: “I’ve had horrendous night sweats that resulted in insomnia, irritability and brain fog—I absolutely talk to my patients about that experience.” 

She also talks to them about sexual health. “I don’t wait for patients to bring it up. I ask them, and make them feel comfortable being open, because the more info you provide the better I can help.” That includes asking about previous trauma. “I’m a trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, and research shows that a history of psychosocial stressors can lead to worse menopausal symptoms.”  

The bottom line, says Lia: “Every woman is built differently, so I work with them until we find the right solution. I want to get you back to where you were with sex, because we can!”
