I am a registered counsellor specializing in perinatal mental health, holding a Master of Counselling
and Psychotherapy. My expertise is enriched by extensive experience as a midwife. I am dedicated
to supporting parents and individuals by integrating my knowledge of perinatal mental health with
My primary focus is to empower parents with information and choices throughout their pregnancy
journey. I offer support through perinatal therapy and personalized, trauma-informed, and
attachment-based antenatal education. Drawing on my background as a midwife, I bring a unique
perspective to understanding the intricacies of the maternity system, informing, and enhancing my
practice in supporting and nurturing clients.
Utilizing a holistic approach, I address a broad spectrum of emotional challenges, including birth
preparation, birth trauma, breastfeeding, anxiety, depression, the complexities of transitioning into
parenthood, pregnancy loss, and infertility.
In addition, I provide informative antenatal and postnatal heart-opening packages and classes for
expectant parents, both couples and groups. These offerings aim to cultivate resilience, connection,
and self-compassion. Clients receiving my mentoring and support report feeling better prepared for
the intensity and unpredictability of birth, based on trauma-informed best practices. This includes
fostering intercultural humility, using inclusive language, and ensuring respectful and accountable
interactions with clients, course participants, and among each other.
