You've come to the right place if:
Support & Comfort for the Terminally Ill
Supporting a terminally ill patient may look more like life coaching, with an awareness of end of life planning. I help clients transition from a cure mindset to a comfort mindset and support them in having tough conversations with their families.
Death Rites for the Dying
Just like a birth doula sits with an actively laboring woman and provides comfort, support, and advocacy, an end of life doula who offers active vigil care does the same—but for the active dying phase.
I help facilitate sacred moments during this phase to help the person passing and their loved ones to be complete. This creates profound healing for both..
Death Rites for the Deceased
Over the past 2 years, many of our family members have died alone due to COVID or other sudden unexpected circumstances. Many living family members are still looking for closure and a way to have a more meaningful and personal good-bye with their deceased loved one. This is also the case for the deceased loved one.

Frequently asked questions
Here are a few answers to our most common questions
In a nutshell, hospice is medical clinical care and end of life doula care is non-medical compassionate care. They may provide some of the same services, such as deep listening and practical support.
However, my service is grounded in contemporary shamanic practices, which make it very unique.
You can work with an end of life doula long before you reach the end of life. Many doulas offer services to help you get your affairs in order ahead of time before there is a need.
You can also start working with an end of life doula when you've been diagnosed with an terminal illness and may have years, months or weeks left to live.
Caregivers can also work with an end of life doula to create a plan of support for their elderly or dying loved one.
Yes, we can work together even if you are not local to the area. I have access to materials that are specific to each state as well. Most of the services I offer can be done by Zoom video calls.
I'm also available for out-of-state clients for an additional cost.
End of Life Doula services are not covered by insurance. This is a valuable private pay service.
I learned a long time ago that healing doesn't always mean being free from disease. It can come in the form of death.
I've been helping people have tough conversations regarding death since my early 20's. As a Contemporary Shamanic Guide and Energy Practitioner, I use various holistic modalities with my clients to provide comfort, peace and release unwanted beliefs and emotions that can weigh heavily on a person when the end is nearing.
I help individuals plan and prepare for their transition from this life by facilitating conversation between them and their family, helping them get their wishes understood and documented and providing a grounded, comforting presence to the client and family during a deeply intense and emotional time.
