Hello, I'm Joanna
I have loved supporting families for over 20 years!
Originally from Annapolis MD, after living in San Francisco for 10 years, I moved to Mexico with my partner Amos and dog and cat, River and Fabio.
Currently expecting our first baby this summer, 2023!
I have a very small family. Having lost both my mother and my father and been alienated from sister, I intimately understand the depth of grief and loneliness that comes with losing family. For me, the practice of holding space for big emotions fills me with a sense of purpose. I've been on a healing journey for almost 15 years that incorporates movement, breath, connection with nature, and mindfulness, keeping me grateful every day. I support my clients on the full spectrum of mental, physical, and emotional health on their journey to becoming parents.
Joanna is a CLD/PP Doula, Sound Healer, Art of Circling Graduate, and home owner in Tulum, Mexico. She believes in the importance of setting up couples today for healthy babies tomorrow, so the world can have safer, healthier families and communities.
