Single Mother by Choice, Life Coach, author and founder of Motherhood Reimagined.™

I began helping women navigate their own unique path to motherhood after I was forced to let go of the fairy tale vision of my life, and embraced a path to motherhood I never imagined. And, now I wouldn't change a thing.

My work with mothers to be and mothers combines a life long passion for women's reproductive rights and my training as a life coach, mind/body healer, lawyer, patient's rights advocate, childbirth educator and postpartum doula.

I look forward to helping you find clarity in your own unique path to motherhood.

The Embodied Clarity Approach uses body mechanics, and energetic practices, to quiet the voices and uncover your clarity and desires.  More importantly, you learn to discern the voices that are dead set on holding you back from your inner knowing and desires.

It’s not easy work. It takes courage.  But my approach will help you harness the ability to find your truth and let go of the doubt, indecision, and blame.

From that grounded, clear place we can begin to evaluate options for pregnancy and parenting.

The result is a feeling of certainty and conviction as well as a willingness to put down the voices and messages that do not serve you on your path so you can open to what's possible and get down to becoming a mama.

Do I Wish I Had Frozen My Eggs?

By | July 31, 2017

I feel at the same time, very cynical about companies paying their employees money to freeze their eggs so they can put off starting a family and thrilled that this technology is available to provide more opportunities for women.

Single, 42 and Infertile But I Still Gave Birth To My Baby

By | March 4, 2017

As a child, I was obsessed with babies. If anyone asked me if I wanted kids when I grew up, I would exuberantly respond that I wanted eleven babies (I know, right? Eleven??).
