I am a Duke trained Integrative health coach. Having someone who is concerned with your wellbeing can make all the difference in the world to help you move forward with any health or lifestyle changes. I specialize in how to cope with becoming a caregiver of a loved one (child, spouse or parent). Caregiving can take a toll on a person's health. If you are feeling stressed, not eating or sleeping properly, feeling isolated or overwhelmed coaching can help you focus on how to take care of yourself. I will help you incorporate stress-reduction techniques, healthy eating and social contact into your daily routine. Fees are based on the length and number of sessions. Integrative Health Coaching can be done in-person,or by telephone, Skype or Facetime.

Learning how to do Infant Massage helps to promote the healthy development of your infant. Caring human touch is crucial for a thriving baby, and the benefits of massaging your infant are numerous. For example, many infants show improved growth and development of the brain and nervous system. Infant massage has also been shown to improve the quality of a baby's sleep, as well as strengthening their immune system and the emotional connection of baby and parents. Individual or group classes can be scheduled.
