“Who Am I Now?”

On the day your baby was born, a different version of YOU was born also. The transition to parenthood is a big one and it can have profound effects on your self-identity. While there can be tremendous joy and satisfaction in raising the next generation, it’s also normal to feel like you’ve lost yourself in this new role.

There are profound changes that occur in the maternal brain – often referred to negatively as “Mommy Brain” – that encourage positive maternal behaviors that are adaptive to your new role. But modern-day parenting is not supportive of these changes. Knowing how your brain works is empowering and can be important for the health of your whole family!

For these sessions, an open mind is all you’ll need as we take on YOUR particular struggles in self-identity to identify what and how your circle of support can help you integrate who you were then and who you are now into a cohesive whole.

“Birth Integration”

Giving birth is a life-changing event for everyone in the family! And it’s an event that usually doesn’t go “according to plan.” On the other side of your baby’s birth, you may feel like you need to tell your story to someone who will really listen. Especially if you feel like your birth went a little or a lot sideways! You deserve to be the protagonist – the hero, really – of your own birth story… Let me help you find your way.

In this 1-hour session, you would tell your story in whatever detail you are comfortable with and I will take notes. Using the tools of resonance and empathy, we will explore the hardest parts of your birth story to see if we can release anything that’s being held in the body. Many people will report that they feel like they “can breathe again” after doing this work together.

What I believe: ALL differently configured families deserve support as they navigate their unique pregnancy, birth, and parenthood journeys. With over 25 years of experience helping thousands of families move from feeling stuck to thriving in their new roles, I’m lucky enough to still feel as passionate about this work as when I first started.
