In addition to being a doula, Brooke is also a counselor who specializes in issues related to pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. The childbearing year is a time of great anticipation, tender transitions, and major identity shifts. Counseling focused on this unique lifecycle phase offers a space where you can safely explore your changing life, prepare for the transformation of birth, and look ahead to the joys and challenges of the postpartum.

Self-image and your changing body
Exploring hopes and goals
Stepping boldly into your shifting identity
Identifying your inner strengths and resources

Discovering labor techniques unique to your mental and emotional needs
