I live in Eureka with my husband Shane and our two daughters Lilia and Josephine. I find parenting to be the most challenging and deeply rewarding work of my life. There are days when I feel on top of the world with these tools and days when I am profoundly humbled! I understand the demands and joys of life with children. As a local Holistic Coach and Doula, I have worked with Humboldt County families, individuals, schools and workplaces bringing my signature warmth, wisdom, humor and practical strategies for Whole Life Wellness, Conscious Parenting and relationships for over 20 years. I am passionate about consciously crafting and living the life of my dreams and helping others to do the same. My Conscious Parenting courses are a culmination of my interests, study, training and practical application with my own family. I strive to weave the best parts of my education and training in:

• Midwifery-Midwives Model of Care
• ALACE Childbirth Educator
• Non-Violent Communication
• Positive Discipline
• Simplicity Parenting

I have had the great joy of attending births and educating and supporting Humboldt County families as a Doula since 1996. In 2002 I became a parent myself and learned the importance and need of competent skills and support for today’s parents. I’ve been facilitating ongoing classes and workshops for parents, teachers and others since 2007.
