Thank you for your interest in this series and for the want to uplift, guide and support your child through these somewhat tender and confusing years.
Sister Moon is slowly evolving into a new embodiment to make sure it is equipped to support all girls, non-binary and questioning youth who need a safe space to ask questions and get honest answers.
Thank you for trusting me with the honor of witnessing your child evolve into themselves.
A little bit about me...
I am a deep feeling, multifaceted, queer, Chicanx human; who loves color, movement and supporting young people and their parents towards their truest embodiments.
I am a successful, self-employed Sonoma County resident who owns two local, heart-centered businesses: Alma Rising Doula Care, and this series.
In 2014, I began to delve into my deep calling to become a Doula and immersed myself in books learning all that I could about the body, reproductive health and justice. After almost a year of training, I certified through Doula Trainings International as a Birth & Postpartum Doula in and I have been supporting families in Sonoma County, Marin and The Bay Area ever since.

At the time of my certification, I had no idea where else my Doula practice would guide me to creating, but I knew I needed to some how bring my knew found knowledge and tools to the youth in my community. I wanted to find a way to support them through the intense transitional time of puberty and teenage years so they can be strong resilient adults in the future. Helping them find tangible, healthy and safe ways to support THEIR growth and THEIR passions, while simultaneously learning the importance and power of connection, language and how we talk to ourselves and others can effect our mindset.
Sister Moon was created to support and lift up the amazing and bright young humans of the future...for they will help carry on these important teachings and tools of inner strength and self love. A lot of the topics that are gone over during the series were pulled from current topics and events going on in our every day lives as well as basic information I felt every growing young human should know during this huge transformational time in their lives. This series was hugely based off what I wish I had growing up as a hormonal, curious and emotional young pre-teen and teenager.
Another big part of the series I wanted to include was supporting parents in helping their children navigate this sometimes confusing and emotional journey of puberty and growing up. Next to holding space for the youth during this series...holding space and being able to be a listening ear for parents is one of my biggest honors. This part of the series is what I am hoping to grow and turn into a deeper resource.
I really hope that Sister Moon continues to spread throughout the county and maybe one day the world, to help reach every growing child and family who may need it.
Thank you for showing up in this way...
For you and your young one.
