Meet Your Mentor

Hi! I'm Eryn 😃🦋

I've been working in the healing arts for almost 25 years, and got my "10,000 hours" of hands-on contact with breast and chest surgery patients years ago, so I'm now helping other people get their hands-on to this very unique and beautiful population.

I'm super passionate about bringing resources to people who have previously been "invisible' in society. Breasts have been very taboo to treat for most of modern history, and they're feeling the lack of care.  We need to change that!!

As Founder of The Mastectomy Guide, I now teach and guide therapists towards reaching new potentials in their practice, being able to help a new clientele, get new breast and chest patients into their practice and developing relationships with surgeons and doctors. 

Supporting women's health and trans health is so important, so they feel validated, seen and heard, and are having their needs met by caring individuals.

I also help patients know what they can do at home to prepare for and recover from breast surgery, usually due to breast cancer but also elective breast surgery.
