To learn more about my personal experience of death and
dying, read Death and Dying - A Personal Adventure
in Friends Journal, August 2017.
Creating happiness amid bereavement is a high calling; one that speaks to me as an End of Life Doula and Life-Cycle Celebrant. The passing of a loved one is difficult time in our life's dance. Sudden loss can be almost unbearable in its surprise; the death of an elder after a long life gives us time to say our good byes.
Having accompanied friends and family members in their end-of-life journeys by serving as an advocate and friendly council, I was inspired to train and become certified as a "Sacred Passage Doula" through the Concious Dying Institute. I've learned a lot about this rite of passage through personal experience and study. This life experience ensures clients have a caring and compassionate partner as they navigate their end of life journey and plan Celebrations of Life, consider home funerals and address the many physical, emotional, spiritual concerns that arise during this time.
I look forward to helping you during this time.

I just want to take a moment to thank you again so very much. I had many many people ask if you were a relative or family member. And extremely shocked that you were not! Asking where did you find her. You made it a very special day and I will be forever grateful.

My sisters and I were so happy to have you perform our mother's Celebration of Life ceremony. You delivered the eulogy with grace and feeling. Your gentle, caring manner was a lovely addition to a day that wasn't easy for us. We appreciate all the time you spent beforehand planning the service with us so that it would be just right, and it was. Our guests commented on the loving atmosphere in the room where we all gathered - and of course you were a big part of that. Thank you so much.
