No matter how she became a mother, we want to recognize her journey.

No matter how she gave birth, we want to celebrate her rite of passage.

Postpartum can be a time of great growth and fruitfulness.

Mothers are some of the greatest caretakers, but they need someone to nurture them too.

Our challenges don’t define us; they show us how strong we are as we overcome them.

We want to support one another in our choices about how we mother our children.

The more we feel secure in our own unique way of mothering, the less we need to shame or judge others.

The more we feel secure in our own unique way of mothering, the less someone else’s choices will make us feel insecure or angry.

By cultivating more grace and understanding for ourselves, we are able to give more of grace and understanding to others.

Our circumstances as mothers don’t need to be perfect in order for us to experience joy and peace.

My Bio:

I’m a registered nurse and nutritional therapy practitioner passionate about nurturing the health of mothers mind, body and spirit.

I obtained my bachelor’s degree in nursing and spent 5 years working at a hospital in pediatric and mother/baby units. Then I diversified into caring for pregnant women at a community resource center and teaching group prenatal classes. I discovered how much I love teaching!

During my own challenging experience with pregnancy and postpartum, I struggled to understand what was happening, especially when I experienced postpartum depression and anxiety as a Christian woman. It was difficult to find the right practitioner to guide me through the process. Now, I’ve made it my mission to be the voice and resource I wish would have had.

I recognize that the entrance to motherhood and its early years are some of the most vulnerable in a woman’s life. That’s why I’m committed to lending my professional knowledge, personal experience and wisdom to women during their motherhood journey.


Learn About Nutritional Therapy:

How does working with a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) benefit mothers and mothers-to-be?

  • Nutrition and lifestyle factors are especially important while trying to
    conceive, during pregnancy and after giving birth.
  • An NTP has adequate time to learn a client’s story and pay attention to the nuances.
  • During this crucial time in a woman’s life, an NTP’s knowledge of how to support the foundations is particularly helpful when small changes have great benefit.
  • Cleanses, detoxification, some medications and supplements are not recommended during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. NTPs can offer a lot of support during these times because a majority of their training is based on nutrition and lifestyle changes.

What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (NTPs) receive a 9 month certification while learning how to support the foundations of health so that the body is able to heal itself and function optimally.

The foundations of health are:

  • A nutrient-dense, properly prepared, whole foods diet
  • Digestion
  • Blood sugar regulation
  • Fatty acid balance
  • Mineral balance
  • Hydration

NTPs are trained to:

  • Evaluate a client’s nutritional needs
  • Make dietary and lifestyle recommendations that support the foundations
  • Assist clients using a unique consultation process
  • Honor the body’s innate wisdom
  • View each client as bio-individual
  • Incorporate guidance on movement, sleep, stress management and emotional wellness
  • Know when to refer clients to other practitioners such as doctors, registered dieticians and mental health professionals NTPs do not diagnose or treat illness. They are certified through the Nutritional Therapy Association.
