Honoring my ancestors is an important aspect of my work. 

I cared for my great aunt and uncle in the last years of their lives, and created my grandmother’s funeral ceremony. The experience of being close to the dying process showed me that death is a powerful teacher. I was able to witness the mysteries of the end of life. They allowed me to walk with them right up to the edge and they taught me what dying with dignity meant. I learned how to advocate for that. I was trusted with companioning them through the sacred rite of passage and honored to have witnessed vulnerability, suffering, beauty and forgiveness in the process.

How it began…

I realize that a Death Doula is hired for who they are and how they show up in the world, not by their credentials.

I strive to show up with an open heart and without judgment. We don’t have to do this alone.

Now that I am a professional End of Life Practitioner, I carry the trust of my ancestors with me as I support and guide others through this process.

Retreat Facilitator

I'm a Jiu Jitsu practitioner and Yoga instructor

I am committed to honoring the beliefs of others and very often include prayers in the ceremonies that I create, if requested. However, I am a Funeral Celebrant which is a non religious role. I also believe that It is possible to create a sacred ceremony and rituals for clients looking for non-religious ceremonies as well.

Do you provide religious funeral services?

No. As of right now Death Doulas are private pay. I offer packages for visits and can offer a sliding scale if necessary.

Are your services covered by insurance?

I absolutely experience sadness at times, but I also witness so much beauty and emotional healing that it reminds me of what is important in life.

Isn’t it depressing to be with people at the end of their lives?

Her calming presence and innate knowledge of what people need at such a sensitive time in their lives is what makes her so effective in her role as an end-of-life doula."
