  • As a Thanadoula I provide consultations to share your story and to determine the needs and primary reasons for seeking support services.  I assist in creating an advance care plan addressing legal and pre-planning options, advocate and mediate between individual service providers, health care teams and institutions to ensure the death journeyor and their caregiver’s needs and wishes are met, accompany individuals on their dying journey providing companionship and support throughout the continuum of care days, months or years before the end of one’s living.

    As a Home Funeral Guide I consult, educate, support and provide resources to enable a family to feel confident in performing the necessary tasks that need to be completed if enacting their own family-directed home funeral.  I support personalized home funeral ceremonies and rituals performed by family members.  If a family wishes to do only a partial home funeral and wishes to hire a funeral home to provide some services I would collaborate with the designated funeral service provider.

    As a Funeral Celebrant I would serve as a guide in the art of ritual and the healing graces of ceremony.  I officiate funerals, memorials, graveside interments and cremations.  With a family I co-create and write a personal , dignified and highly customized end-of-life tribute to your loved one that encompasses a ceremony and eulogy that accurately reflects the life and beliefs of the person who has died.

    As a Home Funeral Advocate/Educator I facilitate home funeral workshops that offer an opportunity to better understand the practicalities involved in caring for our own at the time of death.  This is also a time to deepen the truth that the greatest gifts are often hidden in the things we avoid, and that there are powerful tools and rituals to help us transform grief into a force that allows us to live and love more fully.
