Introduction

I have been working with individuals & their families as they move through pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and loss for 20 years. What I bring to your care is compassion and a depth of experience. During midwifery school, I worked as a labor & delivery nurse and childbirth educator. I attended births at homes, in birth centers, and in hospitals. During my 14+ years as a nurse-midwife, I worked in community hospitals and a federally-qualified health center and taught Mindfulness-Based Childbirth & Parenting (MBCP) to expectant families. In 2019, I became a Level 1 Internal Family Systems psychotherapist, and, in early 2020, I gratefully became a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. My intention is to facilitate you to access your own capacity and creativity to meet with whatever is arising during your life. In this way, I continue to midwife clients through pregnancy and the process of becoming parents. Preconceptionally, I work with people who have mental health issues to make a plan about how they will keep well during the transition to parenting. I also address issues related to infertility, pregnancy loss, adoption, stress, anxiety, depression, birth trauma, and the postpartum transition. My therapeutic approach is mindfulness-based with an IFS framework. As a mental health nurse practitioner, I have the ability to offer integrative care which means I can prescribe medication to clients who need and want it. If you are looking for Mindfulness-Based Childbirth & Parenting classes, please check out childbirth education at Mt Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA or, for national listings, mindfulbirthing.org. As of August 2022, the wait for an appointment is typically 1-2 months. Please contact me to get on the waitlist, and I will connect with you when I have space available.
