WELCOME

Life is filled with transitions - some are joyful; others are more difficult. In either case, a doula can help by supporting you with dignity, by honoring your decisions, and by helping to make your decisions known.

Birth Doula Services

As a birth doula, I am dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment for expecting parents. I understand that each birth is unique, and I help to create a personalized birth plan that matches the needs of each individual. Furthermore, I am honored to be an LGBTQ+ friendly service that provides compassionate support for all families.

I guide parents through labor and delivery, offering care and comfort before, during and after the birth of their baby.

End of Life Doula Services

As a death doula, I provide end of life support to those facing a terminal illness and to their families. I specialize in providing emotional, physical, and spiritual comfort and support through the end-of-life process. In addition to providing companioning services, I also offer guidance through life reviews, legacy projects, death plans, and am able to provide vigil services.

My mission is to create a sacred and safe space that honors the dying process, while helping to ensure that the wishes and needs of my clients are respected and met. I am here to provide unconditional love and compassion during a time of uncertainty and grief.
