STONE CIRCLES DOULA CARE
End of Life Doula
Our final passages at the end of life can be approached with sacredness, intention, and in a way that truly represents the uniqueness of each individual. We can reclaim the traditions of forgotten days and care for our own in a way that feels healing, powerful, and authentic.
I navigate my practice with a union of intuition, energy and sound healing, ritual, and psychological perception. In any path we take there is always more to learn and new ways to grow, so I immerse myself in every educational opportunity available to me. In doing this I hope to better enable myself to be a powerful companion and resource for you throughout our journey together.
I am happy to meet for a free 30 minute consultation to discuss your wishes and options. I believe in the importance of assuring we have an energetic connection and an understanding of each other prior to embarking on this journey together.
I acknowledge that we reside on the unceded ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish Tribe. To honor these people, I donate 5% of all of my earnings through Stone Circles Doula Care to Real Rent Duwamish.
I am happy to offer sliding scale services for those in need. Please feel free to contact me regarding alternate pricing and packages and we will work something out together.
This service could entail life review, small errands, making tea, reading at the bedside, sound therapy, and unbiased confidential conversation.
I will be there to assist you with health care advocacy, grief support, spiritual guidance, and family communications.
