About

Are you a parent who feels like you’ve lost yourself in parenthood? Do you think birth should be empowering, yet you’re struggling with mixed or upsetting emotions about your pregnancy or birth? It’s normal and common to have complicated feelings during this time. We believe becoming a parent should be easy, yet for many people, it is not. Many people experience anxiety, depression, and loss. The more support we have, the more we will thrive. You deserve to feel nurtured and empowered during this transitional time. Together, we can help you release old patterns that no longer serve you, find healing, and reclaim your authentic self.
With my experience as a Doula, I know parents need nurtuing, too. Together, we'll gently dispel myths of parenthood, create space to heal from trauma, and navigate loss using mind-body, experiential, and relationship-focused practices. Grow deeper relationships with yourself and others, embrace imperfections and change, and learn to love your body.
All of you is welcome here. I believe black and brown lives matter, queer, non-binary, and trans rights are human rights, and health can exist at every size. I respect and hold space for families and relationships that come in many diverse constellations, and I practice using social justice, reproductive justice, body positive, and gender expansive lenses.
