Death Doula Services

“A Death Doula is a non-medical person trained to care for someone holistically (physically, emotionally and spiritually) at the end of life. Death Doulas are also known around the world as: end of life coaches, soul midwives, transition guides. death coaches, doula to the dying, end of life doulas, death midwives, and end of life guides.” –doulagivers.com 

My Approach

I’ve been death positive all of my life, which places me in a unique position in this moment in time. I also understand that the elements surrounding the death experience are different for every person.

My style is unique. I am sincere, honest, and thoughtful. I am an empath and quickly adapt to the people I serve. I am careful to gage emotional temperatures and reflect or counteract accordingly as necessary. If cracking dry jokes about your diagnosis is what you need, I am happy to entertain that. If you need to cry or yell, I am here to listen. If you need to hear gentle words and reassurance, I am there to give them to you.

I am agnostic and nonsectarian. Should you need me to celebrate your faith with you, I am more than happy to pray, read religious texts, or sing songs with you.
