I began training and volunteering with Hospice at North Hawaii Hospice in 2008 and am currently affiliated with Hospice SLO County, Central Coast Hospice and Wilshire Hospice in Central Coast California. I did my training as an End of Life Doula and Lead Doula with the INELDA organization beginning in 2013.
My work can include assisting with death documents and memorial planning; planning for the vigil; life review and legacy work; Reiki; guided imagery or visualization; planning for disposition or remains; use of rituals; processing the dying experience and most things that a dying person and/or their family may want to prepare for.
My goal is to help terminally ill patients and their families make the death as beautiful, peaceful, personal and sacred as possible for them whether they are at home or in a facility.
