Welcome!

The family continuum is committed to empowering, supporting and educating parents from preconception through the first years of life to blossom into healthy thriving families. We provide group classes, one on one sessions for emotional and developmental movement, and education to parents and adults that support bonding and attachment.

About Me

I live in lovely Vancouver BC in a very Italian neighborhood with really good espresso, immaculate gardens and large varieties of cheese! I am a craniosacral therapist, perinatal educator and counselor, and I love teaching group classes for moms and babes.

 

As a devoted parent you deserve support!

Parenting can be our greatest joy and our greatest challenge. My sincere desire is to support you in your parenting journey.

Whether you are a new parent with burning questions about your baby's sleep, looking for a group class where you can discover new ways to play with your baby while learning ways to support their movement and development, or dealing with difficult behaviors in your toddler, you have come to the right place!

PRIVATE SESSIONS & GROUP INTENSIVES

Pre & Perinatal Therapy

Are you tired of talk therapy? Would you like to get at the root issues of your problems? Are you curious about how your early life experiences in life may be affecting you today? All of us have experienced stress and trauma to some degree in our early life. Unresolved early trauma can significantly impact our current daily life. As we experience challenges in our day-to-day life, these can layer on top of our earliest imprinting.

BIRTH TRAUMA RESOLUTION

Birth trauma is real, and can result from even a seemingly ‘normal’ birth experience. Yet, there is often little support out there for women who are often suffering in silence and isolation. Mothers are expected to ‘get over it’, and be happy that they have a “healthy baby”. This lack of understanding from health professionals, family and friends can exacerbate the symptoms.

BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing where the mind, body and spirit are incorporated. Craniosacral therapy is a gentle touch therapy.  This involves listening with hands to the body’s subtle rhythms and patterns of inertia. By listening to the body’s story and identifying places where tissues are held, this therapy can facilitate the body’s own self-healing capacities.

Healing early imprints intensives

This somatic based process provides a way for adults to resolve early imprinting, and re-pattern deeply stored implicit memories that affect how we operate in the world, and in our most intimate relationships. This workshop is offered in a small group format so as to create safety, intimacy and a nurturing environment. This 4 day process workshop intensive is co-facilitated by Bonnie Davis and Kristin Sipley.

 

Summer Pre & Perinatal 2 Week Intensives 2017

I am pleased to be co-teaching this Level 1 residential intensive with my colleagues, who I have worked alongside for many years with the fabulous Myrna Martin.

This Pre & Perinatal training provides developing skills to work with early developmental trauma and is vital for anyone who works with infants, children or adults.

Level 1 focusses on preconception/conception, prenatal period, birth and the attachment process.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about how we are affected by early imprints, be introduced to practical strategies that can support clients you work with, as well as do some personal work in healing your own early attachment.
