Are you a Mama struggling to find your new normal now that your baby is finally here?
Becoming a mother is a journey unlike any other and while it’s a beautiful, heartwarming experience, the challenges that come with it are real. Like a lot of new Mom’s, I often felt overwhelmed and depleted as I navigated the challenges of sleep deprivation and breastfeeding, while also striving to balance self-care, quality time with my partner and the round-the-clock care of our new baby girl. All of this, coupled with often feeling socially isolated, led me down the road of Postpartum Depression (PPD).
Approximately 1 in 7 women suffer from PPD but a lot of the factors that contribute to it are within our control with the right support. The postpartum challenges I faced and overcame strongly influenced the woman and Mama I am today.
Now, it is my passion to work with other Mama’s during their postpartum journey to provide the type of support I didn’t have.
In my work as an Occupational Therapist for the past 12 years, specializing primarily in Mental Health, I support clients with taking small, actionable steps towards their goals by meeting them where they’re at and helping them reconnect to what they find meaningful in their lives. As a life long dancer and yoga student for the past 25 years, I bring an embodied perspective to my coaching to support my clients in connecting to the wisdom that their bodies can bring to the process of change and transformation. Now, as an ADAPT Certified Functional Health Coach, I harness my multi-faceted skill set to empower my clients as they work towards optimizing their health.
If you want to make your personal vision of a happy, healthy Mama a reality, I’m here to support you!
