Hey there, Luna here!
Transitionary experiences have cracked me open time and time again, bearing a thunder in my heart so loud it became impossible to ignore: "Be vulnerable. Let go. Fail and try again. Always center authenticity." And so, after a long journey walking as witness as well as having intimate encounters in and out of life's greatest thresholds, began the most potent work of my life: weaving together experiences as seemingly distant from one another as birth, grief and death. These rights of passage are points of light living on the same spectrum, intimately woven together as the warp and weft of our individual and collective lives. They call us to listen, mine their lessons, and journey up the trail until we make it to our new normal on the other side of the mountain.
Points of Light Doula Support offer families an opportunity to create grounded & meaningful peak life experiences across Birth, Grief, & Death. Points of Light clients seek this out.
I am profoundly informed by honoring, healing, and serving through my queer identity, androgeny, history of trauma, neurodivergent world view, and an ever expanding dedication to resilience and spirituality each and every day. Outside my professional life, you will encounter me singing, running, closing my eyes to see and feel the color of music, lifting my face to the sun for a few warming moments, leaning into the big feels that bring up all the tears, actively engaging to center the voices of those who everyday are invisible and/or stigmatized, and recommitting my relationship with joy and all the possibilities that come with it over and over again even in the face of great mountains. What I know for sure: you are your best guide and I commit to meeting you at the center. My cup is overflowing with gratitude to be invited on this voyage with you.
In great honor and light,

POINTS OF LIGHT PILLARS OF SUPPORT
f o u n d a t i o n
Every point of light is a sacred opening and a potent ingredient to your strongest expression of self. When you stand on the doorstep of birth, grief, or death you will find opportunity to hone courage and learn to let go and welcome in the great mystery on the other side. These points are rights of passage holding sacred information for your individual spirit and our collective cultural lives. When we engage them, we are more equipped to shift and thrive away from expectations and closer to our own authenticity. Points of Light Doula Support uses this as a foundation from which we will love and care for you.

Naming what you want, envision & dream is a potent ingredient toward change. The professional framework employed in our practice leverages advocacy based on what you seek for a meaningful experience. We are excited to bring modalities to you and your family that explore the intersection you currently stand in, and how that positioning might effect your overall process physically, physiologically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. And! we will work together to infuse your experience with a powerful foundation grounded in the strengths of joy, justice, and authenticity.

Keen awareness and resilience are potent ingredients for change. The core of our practice is rooted in trauma informed care, harm reduction, cultural competency, and anti-oppressive work. Points of Light Doula Support is fiercely committed to meeting you where you are at and honoring what will bring you authentic meaning to this experience.
In relation to birth specifically, rising health disparities are on the rise and disproportionately landing in communities effected by oppression including people of color, LGBTQIA2S+ folks, and those who live with anxiety and trauma as well as the stigma that comes along with it. Birth is an opening that begs you to jump in the rough waters head first, do meaningful work, and come through to the other side with more compassion and a stronger resolve to show up fully as the most potent expression of yourself.
s p i r i t f u l i n f u s i o n
Spirit and joy are potent ingredients for change. What would it look like for you to infuse a practice that is full of spirit into your experience? Many of our clients have incorporated a spiritful and/or spiritual practice at points across their time with us. We are living in a world full of all sorts of noise and distractions that detract from the meaning we can make from sacred experiences. Finding ways to create authentic spiritful practice helps you take the time needed to lean-in to sacred ritual that facilitates connection, welcoming, letting-go, resilience and healing. Spiritful work can be religous in nature, earth based, or an expression of your already established mindfulness practice. It is our honor to work with you in this way so that you may open and engage a stronger alignment with your process.

Movement is a potent ingredient of change. In some moments, slow and nurturing movement holds generous amounts of power to facilitate change. Othertimes, a sharp spirit rupture promotes rapid and necessary shifts. The rising tide of awareness surrounding health disparities illuminate the need for well informed, multilayered, comprehensive care that can hold the right kind of space for you to move and change effectively. While movement of the body is literally a part of the work we do together, it is also used as metaphor to punctuate the need for change. Together we ford through physical, mental/emotional, physiologic, and spiritual movement that open opportunities for you to relax, expand, and create space for change from within. Our work integrates a variety of modalities including continuity of care, empathy, gentle guidance, hands-on support, mantra/visualization/breath work, and focused encouragement when the waters get choppy.
The human experience of life and death and all that is in-between are the forces that bind us within cohesive communities....[These are moments] when you feel your compassion and desire to love and protect your community rise up inside you. You're flushed with oxytocin, which is the hormone that allows you to bond with those around you--you feel connection.
