My services are for all moms. From those who have experienced difficulty during or after pregnancy, birth complications or birth trauma, to moms who may be struggling with the daily tasks of parenting, chronic pain, self care, managing the home, or work.
Individual sessions, which are personalized to your needs, focus on topics including self-care planning, counseling, decision making, parenting concerns, communicating with your doctor, and communicating with your partner. Treatment plans will be client-centered and may include both a physical and mental health focus. I do not diagnose illness or disease but rather serve as a support for your health and prevention of further illness.
Together we will develop a plan of action to help you feel empowered and supported in your motherhood journey, and to ensure you have increased community support, have plans for adjusting to changing family roles and expectations, and engage in activities that bring you joy.
Services may include:
Assessment of occupational needs, obstacles, and functional difficulties
Screenings for mental health needs
Ergonomic recommendations to reduce discomfort and avoid injury including nursery set-up modifications, pre- and/or post-natal exercise programs, and establishing healthy sleep and breastfeeding routines
Treatment plans to promote recovery from birth, increase community support, adjustment to family roles and expectations, and engaging in activities that bring you joy
Help you find and connect with experts such as nutritionists, physical therapists for pelvic floor or other birth-related needs, lactation consultants, and functional medicine doctors.
60-minute in-home sessions and 30-minute phone sessions available.
