Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor
It seems that wherever my path takes me, I am led to teaching for the purpose of supporting, encouraging, and empowering people to accomplish the amazing things they don't always realize they are capable of.
My background includes hundreds of hours of training in childbirth and hypnosis. I am a Hypnobabies® childbirth educator (HCHI), hypno-doula (HCHD), and certified hypnotherapist (CHt). I also have a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and have enjoyed a decade teaching literature and languages to undergraduates at UC Berkeley as well as many years teaching French to young children. But by far the most rewarding thing I have put my teaching energy towards was kindled by my own beautiful birth experiences: guiding growing families through the incredible journey of pregnancy and birth.
I am the mom of three energy-filled, joy-filled boys, whose love permeates my home and my heart with a symphony of light. I prepared for and birthed all three --one in a hospital and two at home -- using Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis, so I enjoy being not only an instructor but also a dedicated mentor to Hypnobabies moms who choose to birth in a variety of settings. I wish all women could have transformative, empowering, comfortable, and joyful birth experiences, and I feel grateful to contribute to that by sharing Hypnobabies with the mothers in my community.
