Like many New Yorkers, I came to this city in pursuit of a professional ambition. Along the way, I had babies of my own and instead of an ambition, I now have a calling -birth! My philosophy is simple. You deserve to feel safe and supported. You deserve evidence based information so that you can make the best choices for you and your baby. In addition to being an experienced birth and postpartum doula, Certified Lactation Counselor and Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator. I have attended trainings with Ina May Gaskin and Penny Simkin as well as other complimentary education including neonatal resuscitation, rebozo and yoga for birth. When I'm not helping new families, I am spending time with my own 3 children and my husband, Kip. I love passing the time watching historical costume dramas and films like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings -basically anything fantastical and heroic.

I moved to New York City at the turn of the century to be a professional actor. I quickly settled down, had a family and became a Licensed Massage Therapist. I consciously made the decision to do something good, live a more balanced life and help others do the same. I custom tailor each massage to address your specific pains and discomforts to promote health and wellness. I am a graduate of the Swedish Institute and I am Prenatal Certified. A runner, extreme sports enthusiast, and sometimes surfer, I can also be spotted on various softball fields throughout the summer months. As a former actor, I consider being the father of my 3 children the role of a lifetime.
