As the rest of my work, my end-of-life work is rooted in trust, honesty and touch. At the end-of-life, touch can be purely investigative. My touch is a nurturing and loving one. A touch, that is whole, sturdy, strong and unwavering, and isn't limited to physical. All that this touch embodies, is carried throughout my work.
It is carried folding laundry, brushing hair, sanitizing bathrooms, cooking dinner or transcribing letters. It is carried in planning a celebration of life, completing advance care paperwork. dressing the shroud, and sharing a hug. It is carried in the way I hold the people and families when I am given the honor to work with.
I am a Death Doula.
You don't have to be facing death to start your relationship with your Death Doula. We can get your paperwork in order, start creating legacy projects, organize your possessions and more. When we do this in advance, we get to meet once a year, or more if you'd like, update changes and share space. When the time comes for me to support your end of life experience, we will have had time on our side.
We will have the benefit of trust, knowledge and grace on our side.
