ABOUT THE DOULA: | I became a HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator in 2006 and went on to become a Clinical Hypnotherapist that same year by attending and graduating from the Ohio State School of Hypnotherapy. As I worked with my HypnoBirthing® families I found my passion and continued training so that I could help them further. During 2008 I took the HypnoBirthing® Infant Massage Class and that year I became a Reiki Master. I wanted to have more tools to help families during the birthing year so I took the ICEA Professional Childbirth Educator Training in 2010. As I began to work with families in my hypnotherapy practice I was asked to help with more fertility issues. I then took the HypnoBirthing® Fertility Training in 2012 so I could have more resources for those families. I began attending births with some of my families and found that I needed more skills to help them through the birth experience so I took the DONA International doula training in 2012. In addition to providing the above services I teach families traditional childbirth education and offer hypnosis and reiki maternal sessions. My husband and I have one angel son, two beautiful daughters and two dogs.
