Hi. I'm Beth (she/they).
I'm a queer registered nurse psychotherapist, a postpartum support provider and a radical listener. I'm also a parent, with lived experience of postpartum depression. I also have an intimate understanding of the unpredictable nature of birth, and of how we respond to the experience. The transition into parenthood asks a lot of us.
I am here to hold space for you and provide some extra care and support postpartum. I also want to offer you support if you're planning a pregnancy or birth and need a hand navigating fertility options or feeling out what birth choices might be right for you.
I have worked as a labour and birth nurse in a high risk obstetrics unit, and can support folks experiencing complications in their pregnancies (parental and fetal), as well as those navigating loss. In the past, I've worked as a librarian, a researcher and a sexual health counsellor.
I work to provide care from an anti-racist standpoint and believe in queer reproductive justice (king yaa). I am sex-positive and celebrate all kinds of family structures and support networks. I know that we are all the experts of our own bodies and experiences.
An attuned therapeutic relationship and presence are key to healing in the perinatal period. I draw on an various modalities including interpersonal psychotherapy, integrative somatic trauma therapy and conflict resolution training. My years of nursing experience, my confidence in lactation support and training in birth and reproductive trauma all might make me a good fit for you.
I believe in the power of stories - your story in particular. I believe in your body, in your intuition, and in your voice.
