I believe that giving birth can be a beautiful, spiritual and natural experience. I am deeply committed to assisting my clients to prepare for and experience birth as a positive and empowering event. Every woman has the right to be supported and nurtured physically, emotionally and spiritually during the labor and birthing process, whether they have the resources or not. A doula’s presence at a birth provides the ultimate supportive care and advocacy for both mother and father.
In addition to doula work, I have a private counseling practice at the Alternative Therapy Center where I see clients for pain management, stress related issues and life transitions.
DONA Birth Doula training; Professional training in hypnosis for pain management and relaxation techniques; Basic Swedish Massage training; Master’s in Social Work; Bachelor’s in Psychology.
Over ten years of experience counseling women and families. In addition to my experience in coaching women through labor and birth, I also conduct private “hypno-birthing” sessions with birth clients that prepare them with deep relaxation skills for effective pain management tools during labor.
Self, three; as Doula, 18.
