I believe in gentleness, understanding, individuality, openness, and wild free spirit. Creative inspiration and honesty are important in the partnership I build with my clients. But I am also very science and fact based. I love blending science and fact as the starting point with inspiration to begin and continue a journey. Knowledge + Creativity = LightI believe that we all have instincts and intuition, and that ‘mommy gut’ is very important. A woman’s body was specifically designed to create and birth life. All too often women are made to feel as if they are infirm while pregnant. It’s quite the opposite! Not only is your body taking care of you while you take care of others, but it’s growing a life. Pregnancy should make you feel like Superwoman.”If a woman doesn’t look like a goddess during labor, then someone isn’t treating her right.”-Ina May GaskinI want to inspire people to live the best life they can, to have the best birth they are capable of. I find that this takes work and preparation, you don’t just wake up one day and it magically occurs. Working towards something and feeling accomplished once it is complete is such an amazing feeling. No one can take that from you or give it to you, it’s yours for the creating and the taking. The path is not straight, it winds, there are circles that take you back to places you’ve been, and shortcuts around some things that maybe you should continue your journey through. You are the one that knows deep down where your path leads. I would be honored to help you find your light to travel your journey.As a birth worker and a health counselor I’ve thought long and hard about what my philosophy was going to be. There are so many things I want to do, ways I want to help, and differences I want to make in my pocket of the world. I want to be able to do all these things while remaining open enough and authentic enough to reach all kinds of people. If I had to pick one thing that has really shaped who I am and how I came to be this way it would be reading. I love reading. I love learning and growing and finding new depths to myself and my interests. We live in an amazing time where written works are infinitely available on every topic imaginable. If you are searching for direction or answers someone has written something that can help. However, in this time we also have a plethora of fakes, self-touted know it alls, and misguided do-gooders. I strive to be my most authentic self while using my education and the tools I’ve developed to help each person with their needs. The way I approach things always begins the same, but since no two people or two issues are the same I have to keep a creative flexibility. I’m brave enough to walk through vulnerability, and want everyone to feel capable of the same.While my support for each client will be different depending on the client’s needs, in each individual time and space it will always come from the same place. Gentle, intuitive, encouraging, inspirational, free spirited, loving, science based support. I will be as invested as you are in your success. I like to learn the interests and beliefs of each client so that I can support them in the best and most meaningful way possible.
