About stephanie

Drawing on my lifelong love of food and holistic wellness as the foundation for my own life and support of my clients, I have a deep passion for women’s health and wellness and believe that food plays a vital role in healing the body. I began my journey as a holistic chef, cooking for individuals suffering from autoimmune diseases and cancer, and I learned the impact that food can have on someone’s healing process and overall health. During that time I met Erica Chidi Cohen who trained me as a postpartum and loss doula and continues to be a dear friend and mentor (she was also my birth doula when I had my second!). Earlier this year I completed my Reiki certification for levels 1 and ii and have incorporated that into my practice, specifically when supporting my pregnancy loss clients. I’m deeply passionate about this work and helping women heal thoroughly and gracefully so that they can be their most radiant selves. 

My own reproductive experiences, from unexpected pregnancy to pregnancy loss to having two children, have all led me to and through this vital work. And it’s from that space- the magical, superhuman, darkest before the dawn space that we bleed and create and birth from- that I show up for my clients. I sit with women in the transition space, when they’re finding their way to the other side of whatever they’re experiencing, and I look in their eyes and they see that I’ve been there, too. These are journeys we’re meant to take together, as women. Providing doula and chef services across Los Angeles for the past five years has given me unique insights into the needs of women and it fills my heart with so much joy to be able to share all of that wisdom with my clients. 

I believe in practicing radical non-judgment and that the most important offering one can make to another person is to allow them the dignity of their own choices and the support to create whatever life they want to lead.  Everyone has the right and the ability to heal themselves, be radiant and live a life they truly love. I would love to support you on your journey.
