Companioning through your journey
You are not alone. As a trained doula, I provide emotional and spiritual support for people with life-limiting and terminal conditions.
Guided imagery and meditation
I help the client manage emotions through guided meditation, including mindfulness and loving-kindness meditations, proven to relieve near-death anxiety.
My client, their care team, and I work together so they better understand the end-of-life process, how to reduce fears, and how to support a loved one through this sacred time.
Making the home or space calm/comfortable
I supply anything the client requests. Such as candles, essential oils, or soft music. This can also involve prayers or readings. Any rituals needed to help with the transition.
I have over 20 years of experience writing ethical wills, life stories, legacy letters, recipe books, and more.
Writing obituaries, eulogies, posts
I write according to the client’s wishes. So please click here for obituary, eulogy, and post samples.
I schedule visits and volunteers. This can be for grocery shopping, driving to appointments or cooking meals.
Connecting client with appropriate local resources
Every community has pre and post-death services. I help the client connect with attorneys, therapists, and more.
Creating advance care directives
I support the client’s end-of-life choices. Then I create written directives or plans for those choices.
Planning funeral or memorial service
I plan and attend services. I also make sure everything is done according to the client’s wishes.
I’m trained and experienced in leading funerals or memorial services for any faith background.
Getting personal, spiritual and emotional affairs in order
I help the client begin tender conversations with family. I also connect clients with loved ones in any way that might bring about a peaceful death.
Coordinating visits between client and loved ones
A doula also helps visitors feel comfortable. Above all, we share sacred and sometimes sad space together. Using humor and grace where appropriate.
As a doula, I support a client’s right to choose psychedelics for near-death anxiety. Unfortunately, this medicine is still illegal in most parts of the United States. Therefore, in the name of harm reduction, I offer trip-sitting services. This is in partnership with the client’s therapist.
Bereavement care for friends and loved ones
In-person or virtual visits between loved ones and I provide comfort. Certainly this involves both up to and after death, as needed.
