Welcome! I have spent the past twenty-five years supporting clients, especially pregnant, birthing, and parenting individuals and families.  My work has included a variety of roles, including:

  • teen parent case manager

  • reproductive health advocate

  • domestic violence advocate

  • birth doula (with private and underserved/low-income clients)

  • program manager

  • board program committee chair

  • private practice psychotherapist

  • childbirth and parenting educator

  • consultant for pregnant and postpartum trauma survivors

  • when survivors give birth approved trainer

  • child & family therapist with prenatally substance exposed children and their families

  • adjunct faculty with university midwifery students


The common thread throughout my work is my desire to help people better understand themselves and/or have a better pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and parenting experience.  Sometimes that looks like working with older teens and adults who don't have children on their own childhood traumas and family of origin experiences; sometimes that looks like working with parents - from pre-conception through pregnancy, birth, and parenting; and sometimes that looks like training and mentoring other professionals who serve pregnant, birthing, and postpartum/parenting individuals.

Please have a look around my website... get to know who I am and what I do.  And then contact me if you are a client or professional interested in working with me.
