WHAT DO I OFFER?
Im sure you have many questions about what a Death Doula does; for as many questions you have, the answer is almost always "yes, that too." Death is a part of culture that touches us in many ways - large and small - and we often do not see how much we are touched by death every single day.
END OF LIFE PLANNING
My clients are my number one priority, and making sure you have peace of mind in your end of life planning assures I leave no stone unturned to assist you in that journey.
GRIEF COUNSELING AND RESOURCES
My services are customized to meet the specific needs of each client. I work collaboratively with other professionals to make sure you have all the support and resources you need to heal.
VIGIL AND DIRECT CARE
Do you need a shoulder or a helping hand? For extended, direct hands on care - I can offer housework, cooking, deathnesting, or just being a supporting person at your back when you need it most.
CHILD LOSS, MISCARRIAGE, ABORTION
The loss of one so young, no matter the reason, can often be traumatic. I am here in this sacred space to keep you and support you.
SUICIDE AND TRAUMATIC DEATH
Sometimes we do not get to plan for the end - sometimes it is thrust upon us. I will help you navigate those deep, still waters and make sure you dont go under.
There arent words to describe the loss of a beloved companion. I can accompany you to the appointment, help you with interment options, and assist in creating legacy projects to remember your precious friend.
Whether it be assisting in organizing cultural rituals, preparing shrouds, body washing, home viewing, or anything related - I can assist with any traditionally ancient death doula task.
Have a list of things you or a loved one wish they could have done? Lets get creative and bring the bucket list to you.
The internet is a wild, confusing place. Allow me to help manage your or a loved ones digital legacy - including emails, social media, online subscriptions, and more.
Help create a legacy for your loved ones - I can assist in tactile projects such as letter writing and creative outlets, as well as digital records such as audio video recordings of memoirs.
AFTER DEATH ESTATE WORK
So, what now? Once you or a loved one has passed, I can help with estate tasks such as guidance through probate matters, physical estate properties, etc.
DEATH CAFES + EDUCATION
Death is something we dont talk about anymore. It is a huge part of our culture that we have made taboo and to be feared. I can host Death Cafes or educational chats about death and all things related.
PUTTING AWAY A PAST SELF
Is the person who has passed you? There are many ways to lay an old self or a deadname to rest - allow me to support you through the process of manifesting who you are but putting away that which you were.
Do you have questions about what options are available to you for interment, ceremony, wills, estate planning, or other more technical/legal aspects? I can help!
CELEBRATE, GUIDE, ASSIST
My husband calls me a "wedding planner for death" - let me be your point of contact, to guide the experience and helm the heavy lifting so the journey is comfortable and calm for you and your loved ones.
