"Thank you for helping me reach the birth of my dreams." -ND

"She has become a powerful source of calm and compassion in my life. I feel completely seen and welcomed in Nets’s presence and have felt so safe exploring the magic and miracles of the birthing process physically, spiritually and emotionally through Nets’s leadership and support." -KV

"Nets is intuitive, and very easy to talk to and work with. She was a true blessing at my birth. As part of my birth team, she understood and respected my wishes for labor. She made helpful suggestions (but was never overbearing) and was willing to help in any way I asked! I felt so respected and accomplished!" -LH

"The coaching was unmatched. No video, class or tutorial I watched, allowed me to channel my energy the way her massage, soft spokenness and guidance, did." -AB

"Recently, I woke up in the morning with a severe and terrifying case of vertigo. I called Nets to ask her to come see me ASAP. She arrived within an hour and immediately began a craniosacral treatment... By the time she left, I felt safe, and, gratefully, about 90% free from symptoms of vertigo. The following morning, I was completely back to my normal self and deeply appreciative of her expertise!" -KG

"During a major health crisis which involved two unexpected surgeries, I was blessed to receive craniosacral therapy sessions with Nets. The sessions played a huge part in helping me to heal both emotionally and physically and to bring my nervous system back into a state of balance. Nets is a truly gifted practitioner whose calming presence, deep intuition and gentle touch will immediately help anyone to feel relaxed and at ease." -NZ
