​​Back in the day when I was breastfeeding and was looking for help, I found judgment. I felt like I was a failure and a bad mother. However, as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), respect and empathy for every mama I work with is a given. I can honestly say that I have never met a mother who wasn't working hard at doing the absolute best she could. I want to support you. My goal is to build your confidence and work with your own goals so that you are successful, whatever success means for you.


I help mothers with such issues as:

Difficulty breastfeeding
Painful nipples and/or breasts
Uncomfortable/painful/difficult latch
Too much or too little milk
Baby’s low weight gain
Plugged ducts

Avoiding nipple confusion
Returning to work
Bottle refusal
Breastfeeding with flat nipples
Food allergies
Fussy/colicky baby
Medical issues/medications

Difficulty nursing an older sibling

Breastfeeding after breast surgery

Unusual looking nipples and/or breasts

Babies born early

Transition to solid foods

Helping toddlers eat healthier foods


I understand and can help. What a relief!



At one of the most tender times of your life, you probably want lactation help and also want to feel accepted and heard. I offer gentle support through careful listening about what matters to you. I draw on a variety of approaches, ranging from the tried-and-true to more integrative strategies and nutrition. Your preferences and needs guide the choices we make together.
