A Message from Mary Joan

I love working with people to help them move forward in whatever way that means for them. I am inspired by people who are willing to take an honest look at where they are, and even though they may be gripped with fear, take the courageous first step to say, "I don't like where I am and I need help." You may be struggling with how you feel about yourself, how you feel about the important relationships in your life, or dealing with an illness, loss or other unexpected experience that has left you shaken. Wherever you are, my purpose and passion is to be your guide so you can connect to what really matters.
Let's connect so you can begin feeling better.

Postpartum Support

Postpartum Support For the past 20 years, I have been on a journey to understand what women need to discover who they are as a mother without losing themselves as a woman. As part of this journey, I have created the opportunity to educate, support and nurture women through their own journey of pregnancy and motherhood.

I'm here to help. If you are struggling with feelings you did not expect to feel during your pregnancy or after giving birth, I know what you are going through. And, I know exactly what steps to take to help you feel better. Healing begins with one small step.
