The Bradley Method ® helped me have not one but 2 natural unmedicated births in what the doctors labeled as high risk pregnancies. With my son I was told that I had gestational diabetes and hypertension and would likely need a cesarian section. I attended my classes, learned supportive nutrition and became informed and able to ask the right questions. This was our first birth experience and we wanted to be as prepared as we possibly could. Our classes supported me in feeling confident and relaxed. They encouraged me to believe in what I already knew: My body was meant to give birth and knew how to do it. Ethan was delivered naturally. He was healthy and I was healthy.

What more could we ask for?............ A daughter almost two and a half years later also born healthy and naturally. I had such positive birth experiences that I share them with anyone willing to listen. I became an instructor to support other parents in feeling relaxed, confident and as ready as can be to have a happy healthy baby and mother.

I grew up in the Bay Area and live in my hometown with my husband, 2 children, our cat and our dog. I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, LPCC and work in a foster care agency in the Quality Management department on the  side of the agency providing mental health services to youth and families involved in the foster care system. I am also a belly dancer and perform as a soloist and in multiple troupes in the East Bay. you can see us around the Bay Area at festivals and other events.  My family loves to take adventures, traveling locally to enjoy our community resources as well as across the country exploring what the world has to offer.  I am a busy working mom and would not trade the joy that my family brings to my life for anything in the world.

Matt grew up in Costa Mesa and then moved to Northern California to attend UC Berkeley. He is currently working for Honda of Walnut Creek. He enjoys co teaching the class with me and we often get positive feedback from our students about having him participate in the teaching process with me.

I am now happy to announce that I have been certified as a Labor and Postpartum doula and am looking forward to offering this service to our students as well.
