newborn specialist + day doula

Newborn Specialist + Certified Day Doula, I provide care, in your ​home, for newborns up to age one, as an early childhood ​specialist + certified day doula through Birth Arts International. I ​am available for part time, full time, short term care during the day ​and evening. I believe my experience, dedication, intuition and ​passion is a gift. I would like to share this with your family.​ I offer a ​holistic approach to child care. I hold a masters degree from ​Sonoma State University, California with a specialization in ​Psychology, Child Development + Expressive Arts. My educational ​background is deeply rooted in a natural approach that ​incorporates the RIE + Reggio philosophies of parenting. I enjoy ​setting up engaging learning environments that encompass the ​elements of how children truly learn through a nurturing routine, ​respect, support, curiosity, experimentation, research, ​collaboration, exposure to nature and love.
