I am a DTI-certified doula, Certified Lactation Counselor and Certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner. I am also a Doula Project full spectrum doula. My practice is centered on reclaiming agency by providing pathways to empowered reproductive choices and experiences. My primary role is to offer physical, emotional and informational support in the process of crafting the reproductive experience, as defined by the individual or family. I offer non-judgmental and culturally appropriate services across the choice spectrum. I aim to be a resource by providing relevant, evidence-based information so that clients can make well-informed decisions while leveraging her extensive referral network of care providers. I am deeply committed to offering accessible, culturally competent and LGBTQIA+ affirming care. I continue to develop skills in the hopes of transforming the current health care system and am truly honored to participate in this work. I hold a BA in Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College and an MA in Social Science from Humboldt State University. 

“We absolutely loved how thorough you were throughout the entire process leading up to and during delivery. You never took a break, were extremely focused and were committed to helping out however was needed without hesitation. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without you!”
