End-of-Life Doula Services
Walking alongside you and your loved ones while providing individualized and holistic physical, emotional, spiritual and practical support.
Advance Care Planning
Advance Care Planning is the process of reflecting, communicating and documenting your values and wishes regarding your medical and personal care. This document will be used in the event that you lose capacity and are unable to voice these wishes yourself (due to unforeseen illness, accident, injury, etc.). You will identify someone to be your Delegate. This person will become your voice if you are unable to speak, ensuring that your wishes and instructions are followed.
Sitting Vigil and Companioning
Sitting vigil is the act of offering compassionate companionship at the bedside for you and your loved ones through the transitions of actively dying to the final hours of a person’s life. Sitting vigil is the act of holding space to allow for a continuous presence at the bedside to ensure the dying are never alone, while at the same time creating an environment of tranquility and peace for the dying. Vigiling may include but is not limited to: conversation, visualization, breathwork, praying, reading, music, healing touch and ritual work.

Discovering, acknowledging and processing emotions can be a challenge. Using expressive arts, whether it be movement of the body, writing/journaling, or putting markers or paint to paper - using artistic expression can be very beneficial in the process of expressing emotions. Do not worry about what the end product will look like or sound like, the PROCESS is what matters!
Are you looking for a unique and meaningful way to honor a loved one? Rituals are a powerful way to process and express our emotions and also to focus our intentions. Rituals can be created and carried out before, during, or after death. They can be simple or complex and can incorporate just about anything that you can think of.
Reiki and Crystal Healing
Alternative therapies of energy work through reiki and crystal healing can be beneficial to help relieve both physical and emotional pain.
Crystals contain metaphysical properties that can be used as a conduit to allow positive and healing energy to flow to the body as negative energy flows out.
Reiki is a method of hands on energy healing which aims to aid the flow of energy and remove blocks within the body. This process can enable relaxation, reduce pain and other symptoms of illness.
