I have been providing compassionate, body-centered care to families in Boulder County over the last 30 years.
As a homebirth midwife, the most fulfilling and enjoyable aspect of my job was my relationships – the intimate connections with my clients as guide and facilitator of their journeys, and as witness to the ripening and blossoming of each family.
I am excited to continue the deep connections and the guidance for women of all ages and stages in life. We need to live in our bodies, trust them, nurture, thank and enjoy them. This embodied confidence is our birthright and it can be discovered and developed at any age. I believe it makes all the difference for how we live in the world.
I miss the babies. To be present for their births, to rest them in my lap as I talk with their parents in the postpartum weeks and to help them find their way was a joy and a privilege. When I observe a newborn’s instinctive intelligence, perfect presence and exquisite embodiment, I recognize the seed of all of us.
I love my work and I am honored to be invited into your life! I also love to teach and I am grateful for the opportunity to share knowledge and experience in many forms. As an Advanced Teacher for the Arvigo Institute, I have enjoyed traveling the world and training other professionals in these techniques. I offer community classes and professional workshops locally as well.
Education and Background
I grew up in New England and moved to Boulder in 1983. I brought with me a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies with an emphasis on the spiritual roots of traditional healing practices. I have since become a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and a Certified Practitioner of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. I have also trained in Shiatsu and Craniosacral Therapy along with many forms of yoga, dance and fitness.
