About Me

Who I am, what I do, and how I move through the world have been shaped by many forces. I've birthed and raised three wonderful children to adulthood. I am an artist, storyteller, mentor, traveler, healer, coach, writer, dancer, trainer, and business leader. My passion, focus, experience, and talent is in offering compassionate creative processes and deep inquiry to those courageous enough to pursue a wholehearted life.

For over twenty years, I've been educating, supporting, and counseling expectant and new families as they transition through birth and into parenthood (as a lactation counselor, doula, and childbirth educator).  As a trainer and managing director for Birthing From Within for ten years, I've developed and led many trainings and programs, giving me the amazing gift of traveling the world and working with thousands of parents and birth professionals.

"Virginia has a balance between gentleness and strength, which allows me to push myself into deepest process. I feel her heart is completely open."

- Marcela (Cali, Colombia)

"She moves beautifully from a serious, focused mode to a fun, light-hearted style during group sessions. Gentle, challenging, and focused, Virginia held us, nurtured us, challenged us, calmed us, and gave of herself above and beyond what I expected."

-Amanda (Orange County, California)

"With the gifts of warmth, presence, clarity, and sharpness of mind, Virginia exudes embodied knowledge and is an exquisitely honed storyteller."
