I am a Cuban-American born in Miami. I am a dedicated, strong-willed, compassionate and passionate wife and mother of 2 amazing kids. I know what it is like to want to support your career and family, manage a home and business, while carving out time for self-care and scheduling a night out.
In 2011, I had my amazing son. I had a Cesarean Section birth, which changed my outlook on birth and motherhood. My life changed and this became my reason for the launch of my private practice, The Expression Center. In 2015, my little family was completed with my daughter, who was born via VBAC, Vaginal Birth After Cesarean. This was a powerful journey of healing, learning and growth. My family is my passion, not a 9-5 job. For this reason, my passion is transferred to working with mothers every day, who choose to put their motherhood journey and healing as their priority, because being a happy and healthy mom is a priority.
I will help you to inspire and empower your thinking and choices by releasing traumas of the past, fears and negative thought patterns, develop a deep appreciation and gratitude for growth with each small step, and bring calm and excitement back into your reality. I will listen, support, and guide you to become the mother your wish to be.
There are many books and many opinions that you will come across as you search for your place in your motherhood journey. This too often leads to doubt, distrust or second guessing yourself. I will help you to release these feeling and start living in your power.
As a mom, you have the potential to radiate indescribable beauty, strength and power. Allow me to help you shine and redefine your purpose! I believe that you are greater than your story, do you?
