Aleta is a registered social worker (BSW, RSW), birth doula, prenatal yoga teacher and is completing her childbirth education training.
As a doula, Aleta noticed the lack of support pregnant people receive when managing pregnancy, preparing for birth and transitioning into parenthood so she decided to become a social worker. Aleta has completed training in perinatal mood disorders through Postpartum Support International and believes that isolation and lack of support during this time is a leading cause of perinatal mood disorders (such as postpartum depression). Aleta has created a practice that helps clients feel empowered, informed, prepared, seen and heard as they transition into parenthood.
The world of pregnancy and parenthood comes with a lot of noise, uncertainty, unsolicited advice (and judgement). Aleta helps you drown out that noise and tune in to your intuition.
Through her own battle with depression and anxiety, Aleta has developed a holistic approach to understanding and treating mental health. She believes that nobody should feel alone in their journey and that the key to healing starts with creating a safe space to process and explore one’s challenges.
Aleta works with a variety of clients in addition to those in the perinatal period. Her holistic and mindfulness approach to mental wellness attracts people looking to take back control of their mental health and step into their highest potential by bringing awareness their thought patterns, triggers, automatic responses, and trauma experiences that have shaped them into the person they are today. The beautiful thing about the mind is that we can reprogram it through therapy! Aleta helps her clients develop skills completely unique to them so they can manage stress, emotions, relationships, adversity and daily-life with more confidence and ease.
In her true nature as a Leo, Aleta loves to spend time in the sun and outdoors with her partner and dog. Her daily mindfulness practices include: yoga, meditation, reading, journaling, and preparing nutritious meals. She believes in the importance of community and supporting local and can be found at the local farmers markets on the weekend.
