For new parents

New parents often find themselves on one of the steepest learning curves of their adult life, and all with a sense of immense responsibility. Coaching and postpartum support during this time can help new parents gain confidence, practical skills, and self care skills. For some, the perfect solution is having help at home when you're tired and overloaded. For others, talking it out and problem-solving is exactly what's needed.

I value authenticity, creative problem-solving, humour and kindness. My own experiences and the stories that have come from working with new families for 30 years inform and enrich my work.

I am warmly welcoming of people of all identities, inclusive of any gender expression, family arrangement, sexual orientation, body size, ethnicity, religion, and ability.
