I'm glad you're here! I am currently on Maternity Leave and not accepting new clients until 2020. Please email for referrals. Thank you!
My passion is supporting families in their life's transitions with therapeutic touch and compassionate care. I have been practicing massage since 2012 and have been a doula since 2014. I have a strong foundation in anatomy and kinesiology through massage as well as education in Spinning Babies, Optimal Fetal positioning and Prenatal Yoga. As a birth and postpartum doula, I have served all combinations of families and love to help facilitate the bond between parents and their babies.
I see pregnancy as a time to reset one's life and evaluate habits, goals, desires, needs and everything you thought you knew about life, and perhaps cultivate a new way of living to pass down to your child. I teach the importance of nourishing one's self before others and feel that changes in our communities start with new parents, even before a baby is born. I always feel so honored and humbled to witness a baby's birth into the world and those moments are proof that love is the one thing that matters.
I believe that both massage therapy and doula work allow me to live patiently, enabling me to nurture and cultivate relationships with people while providing them relief from the stresses of everyday life. I also offer Postpartum Belly Binding and Bone Closing Ceremonies. After many years away, I am excited to be back, serving the families of Portland!
In my free time, I enjoy hiking in the PNW backcountry, creating handmade clothes, cooking new vegan recipes and lounging around with my husband and our two fur-babies.
