While there are no standard answers or steps in the complex dance of life, life experience gives a large measure of valuable insight. As a God centered, spiritual Traditional Midwife of 25 years, mother of home born children, home schooling parent, step-parent, unassisted childbirther, author, musician, wife, farmer, shepherdess, teacher, historian, naturalist, community resource & family advocate, my perspective is fairly vast, well-rounded and secure.

I am available for private consultations on an hourly basis. Please write or e-mail when you would like to arrange for a one hour phone consultation. Pre-payment is requested but not mandatory. I am available Mondays - Wednesdays and Fridays from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. No mornings or weekends please due to my home schooling schedule and family time.

Price is based on a sliding scale of $40 (minimum) to $50 per hour. The honor system guides each one to assess their circumstances. If our conversation goes beyond an hour, your heart will guide you to fairly compensate me for that time. All payments must be made in US funds only, Money Order or check - please no cash through the mail. Bartering may be a workable option. This is a donation arrangement that allows me to be available and give of my time and contribute to the support of my family.

However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.
- Henry David Thoreau
