Bilen is also a Doula Project full spectrum doula. Since training with Debra Pascali-Bonaro in 2011, Bilen has worked with many individuals and families throughout the tri-state area. Currently, Bilen is in the processing of re-certifying with DTI.
Bilen's practice is centered on reclaiming agency by providing pathways to reproductive choices and satisfying experiences. Bilen's 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. Bilen offers non-judgmental and culturally appropriate services across the choice spectrum. Bilen aims to be a resource by providing evidence-based information so that clients can make well-informed decisions while leveraging her extensive referral network of care providers.
Bilen is deeply committed to offering accessible, culturally competent and LGBTQIA+ affirming care. Bilen continues to develop skills in the hopes of transforming the current health care system and is truly honored to participate in this work.
Bilen holds a BA in Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College and an MA in Social Science from Humboldt State University.
