My Story

The experience of dying and death at the end of life has evolved over the years, especially in today’s modern era. I believe that the need for caring, sensitive and knowledgeable support during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see end of life as a witness to ones' life, and as a credentialed Gerontologist and certified Death Doula, I feel honored to be able to contribute my expertise to individuals and families in Maricopa county areas.

It gives us great joy to have helped so many families. It’s a special connection that is built during those months, and I am happy to share with you some of the feedback I’ve received from clients who I’m still in touch with today.

Contact me to discuss how I can best serve your needs.


"We all thought dad was prepared and he wasn't. There are so many things we didn't know to do, questions to ask, or discussions to have with each other until you came into our lives. Sitting vigil was difficult for some of us and you never left dad. Our family is so grateful and will never forget you."


Our Services

A Death Doula at End of Life

All lives and deaths are different, with each experience being special and unique in its own way. That’s why I work with you to customize my support services, always striving to meet your needs and expectations. I invite you to view the services I offer below, and get in touch with me.


End of Life

Holding Space

I request to be contacted by phone any hour of the day and will provide everything you require to make sure your vigil experience is sacred and the Vigil Plans are followed as you've requested. For any reason, an individual plan isn't prepared in advance best practices are followed.



If you or a loved one could use our professional support, it might be time to get in touch. One of our care coordinators will be happy to discuss a wellness plan and coordination of care that’s most suitable for you and your wishes.
