I am a student of massage and Classical Ayurveda and Panchakarma in Albuquerque. Since obtaining my certification as a postpartum doula with DONA International, I am thrilled to serve new and growing families through the transformative and nourishing time of postpartum. I have my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Philosophy from the University of Oregon. I hold trainings in Nonviolent Communication, the Nurtured Heart Approach and Creative Art Therapy. In growing up on a Biodynamic farm in Southern Oregon, I learned early the value and strength of tending to and preparing seasonal and nourishing foods right from the land. For me, traditional cooking is a story in song with an incredible capacity to heal our bodies at the deepest level. My understanding of substance and qualities of foods, herbs and environment allows me to help you through recovery in planning, nesting, self-care and nourishment. I believe pregnancy through postpartum is a time of initiation, transformation and connection that ripples far beyond the heart and bellybutton of the immediate family. I look forward to putting my heart, hands and skills to good use as your growing family makes your way through this fruiting time!
I am a lover of swing dance, capoeira, world music and community meals. I have a herd share and sew clothes and seeds.
Special trainings in Marma Therapy and Women’s Health in Classical Ayurveda to be completed this fall and winter.
