The short of it...
I am a birth doula and a Reiki Master.
I live and am devoted to my work in the beautiful heart of the Cowichan Valley. I gratefully serve the areas of Mill Bay, Cobble Hill, Cowichan Bay, Duncan, Crofton, Chemainus, Ladysmith, Cowichan Lake, and Youbou. If you're living and birthing anywhere between Mill Bay and Ladysmith I will happily come to you at home, meet where you feel comfortable, or have you to my beautiful clinic space in Duncan for a Reiki session.
As a doula, I seek to help my clients find their options and tools, ask productive questions, and learn to navigate the sometimes intense path that is the birth journey with their whole mind, body and spirit. I believe that everyone's journey is different, has different requirements for medical interventions, and what is best for one might not be best for another. I support my clients completely in their choices.
I aspire to help my clients birth in love, rather than fear.
I believe all birth is sacred.
As a Reiki Master, I seek to shine a light into my client's bodies and souls, and in doing so, help them to release what they are holding, and move forward in their truth. I provide this service to all persons of all ages and stages, including through the childbearing year. I firmly believe that real health is deep - that in order to truly change and shift on a physical level, you must first address your emotions, habits, and connection with the world around you. The best space in which to do this is one that is deeply supported and filled with love - this is what I aim to provide in every Reiki session.
Personal growth and health come from within - the power to heal is yours!
