Certified Specialist in Orofacial Myology, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Infant Oral Motor Specialist

I began my journey due to my own son having all of the classic signs of tongue tie, and received no help from my support team. This was such a hard time for us and I saw no end in sight.  We managed, but we did not thrive.

I started with just watching as infants were treated in the office for  lip and tongue ties.  Soon after that I began my journey learning about MyoFunctional disorders that were caused by lip, tongue or cheek ties.  Slowly I started treating patients and understanding how something that is undiagnosed like tongue ties or oral dysfunction could cause life long issues. 

I did training with and am Certified through the Academy of Orofacial MyoFunctional Therapy.  I have an additional Certification through the Graduate School of Behavioral Health Sciences with Coulson Institute for Orofacial Myology.   I then did training to become a specialist in Infant Oral Motor Therapy so that I could expand the age range that I worked with. In-between the different MyoFunctional training I did, I did training with an amazing Occupational Therapist to learn about cranial nerve dysfunctions and how it can affect infants and also became TummyTime! Method certified.  I am also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant who loves.  I have also done training in CFT (Craniolsacral Fascial Therapy) and currently offer it for ages 6 months and under in the practice.  I believe that having as much training as possible will benefit my patients.



International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Infant Oral Motor Specialist

Hey there! I'm Rachel, a Georgia native who found her way to Nashville through the music industry. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in Music Business, I settled in Nashville in 2011, where I met my amazing husband, Ben.

The journey into motherhood transformed my life in unexpected ways. Following the birth of my first child, I discovered a deep passion for breastfeeding and the incredible bond it fosters between mother and baby. Inspired by this experience, I embarked on a mission to help other moms navigate their breastfeeding journey with as much joy and confidence as I found.

During my second pregnancy, I decided to turn my passion into a profession. I pursued a Masters degree in Human Lactation and earned my IBCLC certification, driven by a desire to support and empower new families. Over the past year, I've had the privilege of volunteering at the Ascension Saint Thomas Breastfeeding Outreach Clinic, providing invaluable guidance to families during those critical early days.

To provide the highest quality care, I completed extensive training and mentorship under Chelsea, who designed a specialized infant course for me. During a comprehensive internship, I refined my skills alongside Chelsea, acquiring the expertise needed to excel in my field. Additionally, I have completed CEU training in Tethered Oral Tissue Specialty from Chrysalis Orofacial and am currently pursuing the Oral Habilitation of the Breastfeeding Dyad: A Master Class for IBCLCs.

Today, I'm proud to offer lactation and infant oral motor sessions to moms in need, helping them embark on their breastfeeding journey with confidence and ease. I schedule appointments at our offices in Franklin and Mt. Juliet as well as Lactation home visits (within 20 miles of Mt. Juliet) and insurance often covers them. You can also Sign up for my free lactation support group in Mt. Juliet. 



Orofacial Myologist- Serving West Tennessee and Telehealth

Hey there, I'm Amanda W., and I'm passionate about all things dental (except root canals, of course!). With over 30 years of experience in the dental field, I'm a Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist. Throughout my career, catering to patients of all ages.

Over time, I've encountered clients grappling with teeth clenching, grinding, jaw pain, and sensitivity, often accompanied by sleep issues, headaches, and neck pain. Discovering Myofunctional Therapy unveiled the missing pieces of the puzzle for me. It allows me to pinpoint and treat the root cause of these issues, rather than just addressing the symptoms.

As an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist, my aim is to enhance overall health by promoting proper oral and facial function, along with teaching essential breathing techniques—all with a fun and relaxed approach. Early intervention for Orofacial Myofunctional disorders can be pivotal in preventing serious health issues down the road.

In the wise words of Benjamin Franklin, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Let's work together to prioritize preventive care and holistic health.

I'm located in West Tennessee and offer flexible daytime and evening hours via telehealth, catering to busy families' schedules.

Orofacial Myologist- Serving Middle Tennessee and Telehealth

With over 30 years of experience in the dental field, I have gained a deep understanding of the importance of good oral health habits. My career has been fulfilling, enriched by countless hours of continuing education. In 2018, I began exploring Biological Dentistry, which revealed the vital connection between oral health and overall well-being. This journey led me to Orofacial Myology, and after completing my first Myofunctional Therapy Certification course, my focus shifted from clinical practice to educating clients on correct oral rest posture and proper breathing techniques for optimal health.

I am available for appointments at our Franklin office and for virtual sessions.
