Meet Heathir 

 I understand how it feels to be a deeply caring person in a very messy world. 

As a mother of high-needs children, I gave them all my energy while putting myself on the sidelines for years. I managed to come through the original postpartum anxiety and depression. Yet as my kids got older and challenges with autism and ADHD appeared, the anxiety came flooding back. 

I was being “Super Mom” and ignoring the stress and exhaustion. Can you relate?

My saving grace was all the healing techniques I was learning to help my kids. 

As I saw what got to happen for them when their nervous system relaxed, I learned how to use those same tools to heal myself and others. 

Now I’m passionate about helping women just like you overcome your anxiety and overwhelm — so you can embrace the peace and purpose that is buried deep within you. 

I meet you right where you are in life, whether that is beginning a fertility journey, preparing for childbirth, a newly diagnosed child, a job change, a move, an empty nest or simply exhaustion from the hustle of life.

I wrap you in care that is as unique as you and provide holistic support for your journey.

Because you deserve to feel whole again.
