For me, birth is a sacred rite of passage–for mother, newborn, partner, and family. Itʻs an opportunity to to claim and experience the juicy richness of life. As a Student Doula, having completed the 90 hour Sacred Birth Community Doula Course, I serve families who seek support for their childbearing year.As an Energy Healer and Massage Therapist for six years, my capacity to hold space for anotherʻs experience is strong and practiced. My healing work has focused especially on restoring the nervous system, helping clients to find profound relaxation. I am trained, through Capacitar International, in teaching a series of simple, embodied tools for releasing fear, stress and trauma. These techniques have been irreplaceable in my six years of nannying for infants and toddlers.My approach is practical, reverent, fun-loving, and ever-evolving to meet your needs.
