“It takes a village,” as they say, when the normal flow of life is interrupted by a terminal or life-limiting illness. The fog of grief clouds the brain, and panic can set in when the flood of questions begins: how do I even start, who do I need to call, how much time do I have? Is this really happening?
PAUSE, TAKE A BREATH
There are resources for you. Good ones. Part of my job is presenting these to you, and then handling the logistics of making it all happen. This creates the space for the client to spend time with themselves, their loved ones, maybe a higher power, and learn how to die.
Some of the benefits of hiring a coach include saving money; personal advocacy; defining and recording your quality of life standards; avoiding being taken advantage of by imposed systems; being honored and seen as a dying person.
You are not a patient. You are not another sick or old body. You are a conscious individual who has lived a special life. I am here to serve you and your loved ones as life comes to an end.
END OF LIFE SERVICES

A very personalized experience
Referrals to ethical funeral directors that offer green and cost effective options
You’ll need help and support from your loved ones, doctors, hospice and others to help you along the path. We will work with everyone to assemble roles in your plan of care so you can go feeling safe and empowered in your own style.
Paperwork and logistics are often the last thing on a dying person’s mind. It can be overwhelming, confusing, and needs to be done correctly. I help you navigate the details. I want you to have time focusing on your life, loved ones, and personal dying process. I want to give you the space to understand yourself as you transition, worry-free. I will help you complete necessary documentation, assemble your end-of-life (EOL) team, and start to plan your funeral.
