End of Life Doula
As an EOLD, I provide people an advocate to allow them 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."

Why Meditation and Yoga for end of life care.
During my second year post stroke, a Neurologist, suggested yoga. Yoga, having the ability to be adaptive, gentle and restorative is the perfect exercise to enhance focus and relaxation.
So, I started slowly, incorporating meditation as apart of my healing process. When I started back into formal physical therapy, my balance, strength and flexibility had improved, even though the same pains remained in various degrees. What I noticed most during this time was meditation helped me deal with the pain I was not able to escape.
As my practice increased, I completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance approved yoga teacher training to increase my knowledge, practice and teach others.
Services I provide to individuals or to a group are:
What I don't do are inversions, jumping, long held poses unless supported and on the floor.
Wedding Officiant and Notary Public

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 weddings. Although self solemnization is legal in Colorado, I am mobile and ready to make your wedding special at affordable rates.
