Services and support are tailored to your unique, individual needs, as you see them.
They might include:
Individual & Family Counseling
It is normal for emotional and interpersonal issues to arise during stressful times. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker & therapist, I believe you are the expert of your life, and I utilize a client- & heart-centered, Humanistic approach to assist you in uncovering your truth and accessing inner resources to meet your emotional, mental, and spiritual needs.
Ritual, Ceremony &
Creating Sacred Space
Sacred space, ritual and ceremony are integral to building bridges between life and death. If you feel drawn to integrate these elements, we will work together to infuse the sacred in ways that feel most connective and meaningful to you and your loved ones.
Planning & Logistics
A terminal diagnosis can leave you feeling out of control of your life. Advance care planning allows you to regain a sense of control and empowerment over your life and affairs. I have assisted with clarifying care preferences, advance directives, medical power of attorney, determining where you'd like to die, accessing fiduciary services, planning rememberances and interment.
Death Education & Guidance
The dying process is full of uncertainties which often increase stress and worry. I seek to normalize the dying process and provide insight on biological and emotional aspects of death and dying to support informed decision making.
Care Coordination & Advocacy
End-of-life care often entails numerous systems of care working together. My background in social work enables me to coordinate with other providers to organize and advocate for care that meets your wishes and needs, as you see them. I have experience working with primary care, specialists, palliative, hospice, alternative care, spiritual leaders, shamans, and energy workers.
Assistance Navigating Death with Dignity
I have extensive experience navigating Oregon’s Death with Dignity process and coordinating support for Medical Aid in Dying and VSED (Voluntarily Stopping Eating & Drinking.)
