The Heart & Soul

 

My path began with my own unique journey with my Angel, Easton. He has led me down a beautiful path of finding my life purpose. I am a Reiki Master, Healing Touch student, Master level Social Worker, Certified Lactation Counselor, and passionate child advocate for highly sensitive children.  I love bringing joy, insight, healing, and awakening to people's lives. My passion is working with all people by either providing Reiki/Healing Touch, Prenatal Reiki & Lactation support, or purely Lactation support, all allow me to shine some light into your life.

If you would have told me when he was born that we'd still be dancing with the nursing relationship, I would have said you were crazy! But, mother nature and Easton's intuition have led us down this beautiful path and I am so very happy and honored to still be nursing. However, that is not everyone's desired path! Our nursing relationship started out so very stressful from birth when I knew nothing about lactation, even though I took a class, I had a nipple shield put on my nipples from the first feeding after birth, and if I knew then what I know now, I am confident that our journey would have started out much more peaceful and full of bliss. I suffered with sore nipples, severe anxiety/depression, I drove to the hospital week after week seeing Lactation Consultants, talking to them on the phone, searching for in-home lactation help tirelessly. I stopped nursing, pumped exclusively, fell into severe depression for not being able to have that bond we both so dearly wanted, but I persevered. There was a warrior inside of me, demanding that I get what I desired and that was to nurse my son. I only knew one other person who had nursed their child out of my friends and family. I felt alone, scared, helpless, & detached. But, I didn't give up, even though I thought I wanted to hundreds of times. My husband wanted to help me but he didn't know how and he was just as frustrated as I was.

My reason for sharing this abbreviated story of my experience, is to let you know, this is why I am here for you, because I know how hard, lonely, frustrating, and guilt ridding nursing can be and I am here to tell you, it does not have to be. Over 100 years ago our society began detaching itself from normalizing breastfeeding and it is now coming back. The research cannot be denied, that breast is best for mom, baby, and the environment. I want to be your advocate, your support, an angel in your life, to help you reach your desired goals. I want to help bring peace & bliss to your life so that you can focus on only loving yourself, your family, and your baby. 

I am honored to be here for you!!!
