About me

Hi parents! My name is Krystal and I am a Certified Lactation Counselor, Pre & Postnatal peer counselor, and Maternal Mental Health Advocate with over ten years experience in the medical field. My goal is to empower the families I work with and set them up for success in a judge-free zone! As a mother of 3 children I have found myself in much need for trustworthy support and decided I would fill the gap myself to help parents- because no one should walk this journey alone! If I am not with my family, listening to music or doing art- I am helping families like you! ** I use Hands-Off in person support. This means I do not have to touch you when we do feeding assessments or anatomy assessments. I will help you learn techniques not do them for you by touching your body. I understand this can be triggering for some individuals, especially those with sexual trauma in the past. Please reach out with any questions you may have or to schedule with me!

The passion Krystal has for mothers and their babies is beyond what you would expect from a typical lactation consultant. She approaches everything without bias so that everyone feels included and well cared for.

Krystal is a bubbly, upbeat and super kind human who has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to breastfeeding, formula feeding, latching, and anything you need to know about taking care of your tiny human. She always makes sure your questions are answered and does so with a smile. Her pricing is extremely reasonable and I highly recommend booking with her!!

Krystal is incredible. My first two breastfeeding journeys were terrible. I had no support, no help and a month into both my mental health plummeted and with my third I was dead set on just doing formula because I didn’t want to experience that again. But they I found Krystal. I took the jump and invested in myself. Before baby even came we had our first consult and she shared information with me that if I’d known before would have helped. I am now a month into my third breastfeeding journey and I have never felt more confident in myself and in my body. I genuinely feel like I won’t. And I couldn’t be more thankful for Krystal for helping me get to where I am (:

I met with Krystal after having difficulty nursing #2. She took time to listen to ALL the techniques I had already tried and made sure to find more than one solution to my problem. I saw a different LC with #1 and I felt that Krystal gave me more personalized solutions. You can tell that Krystal truly cares about her patients and wants them to succeed. Thank you for helping baby and I on our journey!
