I am a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, volunteer, hobbyist, and women's health occupational therapist. I, too, have been humbled by the life-altering trials and tribulations brought about by tiny beings. Having experienced, firsthand, health challenges in the pre-conception, natal, and postnatal periods, I am passionate about helping mothers cultivate knowledge and skills necessary for developing, maintaining, and/or restoring healthy emotional and physical balance. For me, it's not about "losing the baby weight" or becoming "supermom". It's putting those societal goals and accolades aside, and looking at only you and your story. And helping you get out of survival mode and into thriving mode.
Years of practice in healthcare, mostly in medical settings, has fueled my fascination with science as it relates to our health; the why's. The exposure it has given me to a wide spectrum of individuals' struggles, the ways in which they try to cope, and their experiences of healing has deepened my awareness of just how intertwined mind/body, mental/physical health is.
It goes without saying that becoming a mother is an enormous life transition. The well-being of your little baby depends on YOUR health and well-being. I'm here to help you become skilled at knowing how your changed body works and nourishing it with what it needs, navigate strong emotions, secure confidence in your new identity, and learn how to enact achievable self-care habits.
Ultimately, I will help you find ways to feel stronger, more grounded, and more empowered to thrive in your motherhood.
