Experiences of death and grief can expand our capacity for connection, interdependence, and love. When we are able to show up for each other, despite our fears, we honor life and become more awake in our own humanity.”
I provide practical information, compassionate presence, and artful strategies for people at all stages of life and health as they prepare for and navigate death and grief. I bring more than a decade of experience as an educator, oral historian, and hospice volunteer to this work. My approach combines a working knowledge of the current medical, legal, and social landscape with individualized strategies based on your values, resources, and goals.
I hold a certificate in Thanatology from the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC) and am a member of the National End of Life Doula Alliance (NEDA).
