What people are saying.

  • Jennifer Harding

    Kristen was an amazing teacher – she showed me how to deeply relax and trust my body, baby, and the birthing process.  The techniques she taught us were extremely helpful for labor.  As a result of Kristen’s guidance, we had a beautiful, natural childbirth and are so happy with the birth experience of our baby boy.

    Kristen has an in-depth knowledge of the childbirth process and her personal experience using HypnoBirthing during the labor and delivery of her son brings confidence and a personal touch to her teaching.  As a doula, I am very confident referring my clients to her knowing that they will be getting a complete childbirth education, combined with a proven method for approaching labor and delivery positively.

HypnoBirthing®, Hypnotherapy, and Pregnancy Coaching

Northern Virginia Hypnobirthing®

I am a Certified HypnoBirthing® Educator and a Certified Hypnotherapist. Having leveraged the HypnoBirthing® method for the natural birth of my first son, Emmett, I experienced the amazing ability of the body, mind, and one’s inner knowing. Shortly after Emmett’s birth, it became clear what my new path would be – to encourage women to trust in their bodies and natural instincts, and to provide education so that they make informed decisions to have healthier, safer, calmer and more positive, satisfying birth experiences. My focus is on the care of women in childbearing years, their families, and, anyone who is desirous of transformation.

My professional background is in corporate marketing and communications, most extensively with a Big 4 Accounting firm and a premier advertising agency. I also have a graduate degree with certifications to teach Elementary Education, Special Education, and have experience teaching students on the Autism spectrum.
