End of Life Doula
As an EOLD, I provide an Advocate to allow an individual to transition consciously with dignity. My duty is to provide choices to individuals and their families and non-medical support to empower them to envision and create plans and actions to have inner peace in the middle of their storm.
What does an End of Life Doula do?
"End-of-Life Doulas complement the care provided by family members and friends, as well as medical, palliative, and hospice professionals, within the settings of hospitals, senior care facilities, and homes. EOL Doulas support clients with individualized, compassionate care in a number of ways, including emotional, spiritual, informational, and physical support, which greatly helps to lower stress levels, aid in comfort, and promote personalized, even positive, dying passages for clients and their loved ones."

Energy Work, Meditation, Aromatherapy, Hemp Oils
Energy work, meditation, aromatherapy, Hemp oils can all work alone or together to improve:
Errands, Tasks and other
There are things you need done. Perhaps at this particular time you are unable to get someone else to commit to your needs. I am here to help.
Not that other YOGA.
Yoga, having the ability to be adaptive, gentle and restorative is the perfect exercise to enhance focus, relaxation, flexibility, strength and pain reduction.
As my own practice increased during a life changing event, I completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance approved yoga teacher training to increase my knowledge, practice and teach others. I was also certified as a SilverSneakers Flex Instructor, and teach adaptive group classes.
Services I provide to individuals or groups:
What I don't do are inversions, jumping, or long held poses unless supported and on the floor or bed.
Officiant and Notary Public
I performed my first wedding in 2001, Couples in Illinois, Georgia, and Colorado have trusted me to guide their special event and put my signature on their wedding certificate. Although self solemnization is legal in Colorado, I am mobile and ready to make your wedding special. From a quick civil ceremony to a couple's exchange of their own vows, to a full blown custom event, it is always my honor to officiate special events.
As a mobile notary I am available to notarize OR witness your legal documents including those related to end-of-life, such as Wills or advanced planning documents. U.S, research states that less than 40% of Americans have their Advance Directive documents completed, These documents can be completed by the individual for free or I can provide a low cost resource to have these and other estate documents completed by an attorney.
Living Wake, Living Funeral/Memorial,
I am here to support you or your love one in the final hours...mind, body and soul. By this point, wishes have been expressed. I am an Advocate for the dying. Candle light. Favorite music. An open window. Religious or spiritual observance. Or, perhaps silence and darkness. Someone to understand the visions. Video call to say goodbye. Whether having someone near, or time alone, the goal at end of life, is comfort and peace. Research provides evidence that depending on the circumstance, the brain may not cease consciousness immediately at death This is a time to help the dying understand and release into the final Circle of Life process.
