About me

My background is as a licensed health professional within the field of occupational therapy, so it will surprise no one that client-centered care, coupled with the provision of evidence-based information, is my default orientation. You’ll hear a lot about my passion for comprehensive women’s health throughout the human lifespan, in all its beauty and complexity. Research shows that regardless of culture or country of origin, women who are supported, who are held by their communities, who take advantage of educational opportunities and family connections -- who are given access to the things they need -- are healthier. Reproductive health is a keystone of women’s overall wellbeing, and I view birth education, combined with perinatal support, to be a key factor in setting women up for long, happy, healthy, well-lived lives. I bring a wide lens to birthwork and aim to provide support for the entire childbearing year. Above all, I have a heart for maternal mental health. People need to talk about mental health as much as they talk about physical health. We’re getting there as a society, but we’re not there yet.
