I am a mother, writer and author, post natal doula, teacher, integrative art therapist and herbalist. Find out about Healing House of Eden, my space for holistic and full spectrum postpartum support here.
Ive long had a passion in cultivating and restoring wellness through ritual. As tools to navigate through life’s experiences, I promote self care and self love using the art of body awareness and breath management, plant medicine and sacred self expression.
After a career in primary education focusing on inclusion, pastoral care and child mental health, I saw the origins of behavioural and emotional challenges displayed at school were often rooted as early as birth. After having my own child, I further understood the importance of social care, community support, connection and compassion, and shared experiences.
I aim to continue to support others achieve their emotional and mental wellness and optimum health through my own embodiment of this healing work and in my service to others. Using various therapeutic and reflective modalities I am passionate about helping parents rewrite their own narratives and heal family and generational wounds rooted in early childhood trauma and attachment issues.
My knowledge for healing and herbalism is inspired and informed by my deeply spiritual and religious Jamaican parentage and ancestry.
