Swing dancing with my best friend and husband

For as far back as I can remember I have been a helper. My entire life people have come to me with their emotional problems. These experiences culminated in my decision to attend college, study psychology and eventually complete my Master of Arts in counseling degree. In my final year of grad school, my life was vitally changed, and its course veered completely. I became a mother. After a difficult delivery, I struggled for many months with depression and breastfeeding difficulties.

For years I thought I’d never have another child, I didn’t think I could go through another difficult delivery. Over time, through education and healing, I became ready to add to my family. After hiring a birth doula and finding a supportive provider, our second child was born. While the birth presented some difficulties, my recovery was made easier with postpartum support and community resources.

As a perfect blend of my education and life experiences, I am able to offer families a range of services. From postpartum doula support, nutritional and meal planning help, to mental health counseling. I am here to help in whatever way best suits your family. Whatever method of support families choose puts me in the position to do what I love: to support parents when they need it most, to be a listening and sympathetic ear, to give them confidence and support so they can find their way.
