My hope as your doula is that when we go through vulnerable and new experiences together, you always feel informed, supported, and cared for by the people surrounding you.

I never had a ‘this is my calling’ moment because in my bones I’ve always been a doula, a giver, a sister, a person to lean on. I love all aspects of what I do, whether it’s physically holding hips or emotionally holding space.

Within my practice I try to achieve a 50:50 balance of the spiritual, energetic with the scientific, evidence-based. As I learn more about you, our conversations shift to augment the type of support that best resonates with you and supports your goals. I fully believe that all pregnant persons have an innate inner-knowing that is a powerful guide through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Our time together will emphasize self-discovery as we listen to your intuition, practice mindfulness & breathwork, energetic healing & support, and prepare for a birth as unique as you.

I live in Washington, DC with my husband and our two pups. When not attending you can find me holed up in a coffee shop, baking something new, trail running, or sharing cuddles with my family.
