Coaching (in person or by telephone)

I work with mothers, fathers, couples and grandparents. In our sessions, we work together to understand what is going on with you and your child at each stage of development, even starting before conception. I then offer you fresh perspectives and specific suggestions for positive steps you can take to help your baby and yourself. These may include setting new priorities and ways to strengthen communication with your child, your partner and other family members.

Many new mothers experience periods of fatigue, isolation, anxiety, or low self-esteem. I work with them to understand the situation, break these patterns and make positive, creative changes.

Self Care Sessions (in person)

I am a registered dance/movement therapist. I can work with you to help you become more present with yourself. Learning how to relax is an important skill for childbirth and parenting. As you get in touch with your breathing, your body, and your rhythmic flow, you open up to your maternal instincts and sense of well-being.


I offer classes through different organizations and settings.
        • Baby-toddler classes
        • Parenting Prep
        • Professional training for day care providers
