My Story

Hi! My name is Celeste and I live in Crown Point, IN with my husband, James, and three children, Noah, Ian and Evelyn.

 

I grew up in Indiana and went to college at St. Mary of the Woods, graduating with a degree in Music Therapy. After working as a Music Therapist for a couple of years, I decided to go to grad school and get my special education teaching license. I taught Early Childhood Special Ed for a short time and then decided to stay home with my children. 

My birthing experiences were each very unique, but one thing that stayed the same was my doula. Her presence at my births enabled me to be stronger than I even knew possible. After my daughter was born, I decided to become a Doula and specialize in Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth.

My interest in Maternal Mental Health stems from my own personal experience with Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. I have a passion for supporting moms during pregnancy and postpartum and am looking forward to offering these services in Northwest Indiana.

 

My office is located in downtown Crown Point at 138 S. Main St., Suite 200.  I am on the second floor of the Old Bank Building.
