Light In The Valley
Compassionate Support through the Ever-Shifting Seasons of Living
Light in the Valley is founded on the belief that everyone deserves deeply personal support when tending to the seasons of living, the challenges of transition and the grief experienced through loss. 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.
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
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 breath-work therapies to helping guide ritual practice to honor your experience without words.
Grief Support for ALL
Holding space for ALL female-identifying persons– to share what’s coming up in their life and resource with breath, somatic movement, compassionate care through active/reflective listening with an emphasis on deepening awareness of your body’s needs and supporting the wellness of your body. Together we practice nervous system regulation techniques, exploring reflective writing and narrative medicine as tools for self-knowledge, breath-work, somatic therapies, and more in holding, processing, and moving through grief.
