Light In the Valley is founded on the belief that everyone deserves deeply personal support when tending to the seasons of living. We are here to hold a light with you– holding space to help you adjust to life in transition, align in your center, and feel deeply met with compassion and care.
My intention for Light In The Valley is to hold space in community to help name and nurture the tender seasons of this living that you need support in and through. We walk together using compassionate communication, narrative medicine, and somatic experiencing as guides. I also offer postpartum, pregnancy loss, infertility support as a trained doula. I offer at-home support through post-partum or pregnancy loss and one-on-one and group sessions to support you in holding and tending challenging loss and the deep well of grief from life’s transition.
Holding Space for ALL
Holding space for any and all female-identifying persons to align breath with somatic movement with an emphasis on developing awareness of learning your body’s needs– supporting the wellness of your body and nervous system, practicing nervous system regulation techniques, exploring reflective writing and narrative medicine as a tool for self-awareness, breathwork, somatic therapies, and more in holding, processing, and exploring your sacred grief.
Deeply personal support for a birthing person and family as they navigate the postpartum period. Postpartum support meets you in your home to help care for baby, birthing parents, and family. In consultation, we’ll explore the types of support most helpful to you and your family– from batch-cooking meals to caring for baby while parents sleep to ensuring light house-work is accomplished in this critical time. A working knowledge of sleep styles, baby developmental stages, somatic therapies, and compassionate care are applied each session through out time together.
Child Loss / Infertility Support
Confidential, compassionate support for birthing person as they carry the loss of a child, whether in the difficult decision to have an abortion or through the experience of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, or stillbirth. We are here to be an advocate for you, a support system in helping you navigate holding and honoring your experience. Our sessions together can take many forms– from therapeutic talk therapy interwoven with somatic and breathwork therapies to helping guide ritual practice to honor your experience without words.
