  • End of Life Planning

In 2005, personal losses and illness inspired me to investigate alternative healing modalities which led to my certifications in Reiki and a variety of transformative energy healing techniques. In doing so, I found my path and transitioned from the corporate world to the world of healing arts to help my new client base with their health and wellness.

In 2015 my mother was diagnosed with dementia, and I stepped in to manage the care and oversight of her business, medical and practical life matters. This personal experience led me to the Conscious Dying Institute in Boulder, CO where I earned the Sacred Passage: End of Life Death Doula Certificate. 

Today, I know that with planning, thoughtful care and guidance our dying process can be as beautiful and celebrated as all the other life milestones we honor. I am dedicated to educating elders and their loved ones in the final human experience, the dying process. I work with my clients to explore options both for the best months, weeks, and days remaining, as well as after death considerations while creating a plan that best serves the client in the five realms of their own experience: Mental, Emotional, Physical, Spiritual and Practical. My work with clients also includes guidance in the importance and use of legal instruments and the meaning of these instruments to ensure the wishes of the individual and of loved ones are duly considered and respected.
