Services

The purpose of an end of life doula is simple: to bring comfort and support to those that are dying. The goal is to help the patient feel the best that they can for as long as possible and greatly improve the quality of their life that remains. To be a grounding support system for the patient and the family during this transitional time.

Please note that you do not have to have a terminal diagnosis or be actively dying in order to use my services. Often people just want to have a conversation about the concerns they have around death and dying, or they have questions about what to expect when a loved one passes. I can customize my services to meet the needs of you and your family. Please contact me to see how I best can support and serve you.
