About Me

Xylem grew from a desire to support families during some of the most significant life adjustments they will experience. Becoming pregnant brings along a whole host of emotions that women and their partners often need supported through. Some families are not able to realize their dreams for a pregnancy, while others experience the loss of their baby. Still others have a healthy pregnancy and delivery only to find themselves in the throes of depression and anxiety after the baby is born. None of these experiences are simple but all are worthy of support.

I have had the privilege of working with families for 15 years and I’ve learned that each one is different but all have a desire to be well and happy.  I am a Jesus girl, wife, mom of a miracle, and a fierce advocate for making WV a better place to be a mom. We were made to thrive and live in abundance! I have dedicated my life’s work to holding space for others as they navigate the adventure of raising children in Appalachia.  My training as a therapist, Infant Mental Health Mentor, and a Certified FirstPlay® Therapy Practitioner allow me to do that in a family-centered, holistic way.
