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. It is important to have your wishes documented and communicated with your loved ones to lessen stress during difficult times.

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.


Respite Care

Respite care allows caregivers an opportunity to restore a sense of balance in their lives. Being a caregiver often comes with stress. Without adequate self-care and time away from the caregiving role, caregiver burn out is possible. I am able to spend time with your loved one, allowing you time away from the caregiver role. This time can be spent replenishing your cup or attending appointments that you might not have had the opportunity to attend.

Navigation and Advocacy

Being faced with a life limiting diagnosis can be difficult for everyone involved. The healthcare system can be quite complex to navigate on your own. With navigation and advocacy support I am able to help you find and access the services that you require, without the challenge of trying to figure everything out on your own. With this assistance, you will be better able to focus your attention where it matters most - on you and your loved ones.

Ritual Creation

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.


I offer Reiki through in home visits as well as through distance healing.

Legacy Projects

Legacy projects are activities or projects that can be done to honor the life of your loved one. Legacy projects can be completed with your loved one or after their passing to honor them in memory.

Grief and Bereavement Support

Grief is the last act of love we can give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief there was great love.

Experiencing grief in anticipation of a loss or after the loss of a loved one is a very individual experience. Despite studies on the stages of grief, there is no specific timeline or a set way to navigate the grieving process. Having a safe space to express your emotions, connecting with others, and having tools at your disposal are all wonderful ways to traverse the waves of grief.
