About Marcela

My work with mothers and babies started with my doula services in 1997 in Austin, TX.

I received  bachelor’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, CO.  It was there where my foundation in holistic health and wellbeing started, and it continues to inspire and excite me.

When I completed a level I Birthing From Within training, it helped enhance my view of the childbearing year and beyond. I led childbirth preparation courses for years, including with groups and private individual clients.

Bodywork for the childbearing year was one of my offerings for many years. I love the whole person approach to supporting my clients.

In August 2017, I completed a Master’s of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology.  I will be offering counseling services as an intern under the supervision of Ann Stoneson, LPCS.  My interest is in attachment, trauma, post -partum depression, early parenting and early childhood development.

My wonderful and full life  includes being married to Eric, and being the mom of a fantastic 12 year old boy and an amazing 9 year old girl.
