I offer a variety of therapeutic programs and services, all of which I’ve designed with trauma-informed SOUL care in mind: 


  • The Healing After Birth Book and Program: A unique therapeutic program and book that helps mothers heal unresolved emotional pain associated with their past birthing experiences. Learn more >


  • Trauma-Informed Doula Program: Sacred Story Keepers: This blended program for birth keepers includes a trauma-informed SOUL care curriculum plus a 2-day LIVE in person event. Learn more >

  • Healing After Birth Podcast: A podcast that includes interviews by professionals in the field as well as, mothers who share vulnerably about their healing journeys. Learn more >


When I’m not in my office or leading a group session, you can find me spending time with my three amazing grown (and teen) children and my rock of a man. I geek out on neuroscience and online business stuff. And, for fun, I love writing and designing jewellery.
