End of Life Doula
Death is one of life's most powerful sacred passages, as well as one of the most feared. When brought to the forefront of our awareness, death has the power to transform our lives, release energies, re-prioritize our intentions, and initiate our courage. Death, in all its mystery, invites us to consider the profound peace that we have long sought has been with us all along.
An End-of-life Doula is a non-medical professional that provides holistic support for the dying and their loved ones before, during and after death.

End of Life Doulas are non-medical holistic practitioners, and do not facilitate death, nor produce or assist individuals in having a "good death", nor help people realize they are dying. I do not place judgement or define what a good or bad death is. My primary purpose is to be in support of, and alongside individuals in their final transition and release from their physical body.
