Hi, I'm Gena,
I’m here to support you to build bridges between your heart and your womb, between your birth imprints and your present life, between your personal, parenting and professional paths and between traditional perinatal health care and perinatal integrative health care.
I am committed to teaching skills that reduce and prevent trauma through education and community building. Experience and research show us that when we address trauma triggers and become trauma informed, we can prevent, reduce and heal trauma. From there, we can reclaim and cultivate our physiological innate capacity during the perinatal period for wonder and connection.
I am an RN, MFT #32708, a perinatal psychotherapist, a certified EMDR (PTSD treatment) provider and the developer of multiple community and county maternity emotional wellness care networks and integrative health programs for HMOs and Public Health Care Hospitals and Clinics.. I have been a consultant and educator for maternity care clinic staff in psychological/spiritual self care and growth for many years. I am trained in cross-cultural Shamanic and Buddhist ways of healing, perinatal psychology and trauma healing. I support Perinatal Professionals and Parents to be trauma and wonder informed, prepared and sustained.
