I am committed to helping adults, infants, and children find a new level of health and balance. By listening to the subtle rhythms of the body, previously undetected restrictions can be addressed and removed, leading to a healthier system. CranioSacral Therapy is especially helpful for infants and children. It is an extremely safe and gentle treatment that helps your newborn get a healthier start on life. Common issues such as colic, reflux and difficulties with nursing can be lessened. New mothers benefit from the calming of their nervous system and the balancing effect it has on their hormones. These gentle treatments are a welcome alternative to drug therapies.

Pregnancy should be a joyful time for all women. It is a time to pamper yourself, a time to slow down and be mindful of the new life inside you. Unfortunately, for many women the nausea, aches and pains, emotional ups and downs and other complaints of pregnancy can cast a cloud over even the healthiest pregnancy.

Just because your symptoms may be part of a normal, healthy pregnancy, doesn’t mean you have to suffer through them. Acupuncture is a safe and natural therapy that can be an integral part of your pregnancy and postpartum care.

I consider pregnancy and birth a normal healthy passage of life for most women. While I am thankful for medical help when it is needed, I don’t accept the idea that pregnancy or birth are abnormal physiological manifestations that women need to be saved from. I believe women are intelligent and able to make informed decisions for themselves and their baby’s when presented with factual information.

Over the last 20 years, I have observed that woman are much stronger than they accept, and they are empowered as they realize this through their labor & births. We are able to care for a family member with special needs, hold the hand of a parent as they pass away and still carry on, because we are women, and we are created strong. Our bodies yield to the weight of a baby in the womb, endure the labor and delivery of that child, cry and rejoice at it’s birth, nourish the newborn from our body, and we will move the earth to protect that child from then on. What a privilege to conceive, carry and deliver another life, and that privilege continues as we influence and mold our babies into toddlers, teenagers and adults.

I am blessed beyond words to be allowed to support women through such a personal and intimate time in their life.

Birth is a powerful experience. Pregnancy is a journey; one of the most important journeys of your lifetime. As a birthing mother, do you know where you want this adventure to take you? Having a doula by your side will help you see the path ahead more clearly, and ease your steps along the way. As your doula, I will offer compassionate, knowledgeable support, while respecting your wishes. Learn more about me and my doula services at my website

Mother’s Choice Birth Education is private, personalized, birth education, custom tailored to meet your needs.
My classes take a new approach to birth education in that they are topical and specific to each family’s needs. As women’s educational needs vary, class topics, lengths, and costs vary as well. For this reason I do not have a set series of classes. That’s what “Mother’s Choice” is all about – achieving exactly what you need in efficient, personal, and custom fit classes. Simply call or email me to set up your custom class itinerary.
