So, what is a Death Doula?
“An end-of-life doula guides a person who is transitioning to death and their loved ones through the dying process...The doula will provide emotional, spiritual, and physical support to everyone involved. Above all, the doula listens deeply to the concerns, fears, hopes, and life stories of the dying person and their loved ones to bring them peace at the end of life. The doula holds the space for the kind of dying experience that honors who the ill person is and has been in their life, and helps them live with purpose up to the final breath...At its core, this model of care is about open-hearted service. The doula meets with the dying person and their loved ones where they are emotionally and spiritually.“ —INELDA

Advanced care planning (2 hours)
A good death includes good planning. Together, we will look at the options available when it comes to advanced care planning. This is not just a conversation about what you want to happen in case you are incapacitated. This is an exploration of how you want the end of your life to ideally be. We work together to create an understandable plan should someone else have to make decisions for you. This is a gift to your loved ones as there is nothing more stressful than having to guess what someone would want. When complete, you will have a notarized plan that can be shared with your loved ones.
1:1 Companioning (1-2 hours)
Many people who experience the death of a loved one desire to process all that happened. There is sense to be made in every death, lessons we want to uncover. 1:1 companioning here does just that.
*Please note this is not the same thing as therapy.
I offer a variety of workshops that explore birth, life, and death for those that work in these spaces, or people wanting to explore these topics deeper. Please check out my workshop page for more detailed information. Also note, due to my background, I am happy to work with groups to create customized workshops, courses, trainings, and retreats. If you have an idea you want to see come to life, feel free to contact me to discuss and dream a bit.
