My job is to support you in your decisions, share what I know, give you comfort, and be a supportive advocate for you and your family.
Who I Am
I am a healer, a bodyworker, an Army veteran, a doula & childbirth educator, an avid learner, a survivor, a mother, a partner, and a vital participant in life. The experiences I’ve had – both challenging and joyous – have paved the road toward my own healing and ability to be compassionate & intuitive with others.
The women I have had the honor of supporting and witnessing in childbirth are amazing and have my utmost respect, admiration, and humble appreciation. My job is to support you in your decisions, share what I know, give you comfort, and be a supportive advocate for you and your family.
My formal university education is in psychology and chemical dependency counseling. I spent many years working with addiction, behavioral issues & domestic violence. I was driven by a strong desire to help people whose lives reflected my own history. I have been trained in many healing modalities, but have chosen to specialize in those that have been consistently effective and resonate strongly with me.
When not doing birth or bodywork, I am a healer, a counselor, an advocate for women and LGBTQ+ families, and constantly learning. I love listening to audiobooks, reading, walking, yoga, cooking, DIY home projects, sailing, improv, and doing nice things for people.
I chose the name “Namaste Birth” because it reflects one of my core beliefs… that we are all good and sacred beings at our core. That we are partners on this journey & the more we help and honor each other, the better our world becomes.
