Support for the reproductive years and beyond

Informed by more than two decades of experience as a birth and postpartum doula, I have the training and expertise to support clients through all phases of preconception, pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood.

Whether planning ahead, trying to conceive, preparing to adopt, or already pregnant, your personal and family history can deeply affect how you experience this time.

Together we’ll attend to thoughts, worries, and anxieties so you can experience each phase more fully.

I’ll support you through the journey, whether it’s winding or direct.

The path to becoming a parent can be cluttered with expectations and setbacks that trigger emotional ups and downs. If you are struggling to get pregnant, have had previous miscarriages or losses, are facing fertility issues or pregnancy complications, this time is fraught with additional emotional and sometimes financial stresses.

About 80% of new moms experience baby blues.

If your pregnancy or birth was emotionally or physically traumatic, we can address and explore your experience in a way that is healing so you can thrive and fully experience a rich bond and relationship with your baby.

Therapy sessions are a gift to your child as much as they are a lifeline for you.

From baby days through school-age years and beyond, parents experience almost constant emotional and mental recalibration. I can help you ride the inevitable waves of parenthood with as much joy and connection as possible.
