I am a healer, an army veteran, a doula & childbirth educator, an avid learner, a survivor, a mother, a partner, 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.
I believe there is no calling higher than supporting women in creating a magnificent, peaceful, and empowering entrance into this world for a child. In my own son’s birth, I created a space wherein I was totally surrounded by love and joy – my own experience was truly wonderful and I revel in the memories. My goal is to create that kind of space for the birthing people I work with - one that holds space for the birth you desire...whatever that looks like.
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 as a doula and educator is to support you in your decisions, share what I know, give you comfort and be a supportive advocate to you and your family.
When not doula-ing, I am a healer, a counselor, an advocate for women and LGBTQ+ families, a website designer and educational consultant. I love listening to audiobooks, reading, walking, yoga, cooking, DIY home projects, sailing, improv and doing nice things for people.
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.
I chose the name “Namaste Healing” 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.
“I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of Love, Integrity, Wisdom and Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One.”
