My father was a pioneer in the nursing home business. Throughout my upbringing I worked and bonded with residents facing the challenges of their last stage. World travel led me to contemplative studies and a degree in Dance Therapy. For decades, as a practitioner in cognitive and somatic integration models, I’ve trained and coached groups in communication, relationship skills and systems work. As a Craniosacral practitioner I set up programs with Hospice. I facilitate “Speaking of Death...”Cafes throughout Sonoma County. As a Death Doula and, in collaboration with other health care professionals, we provide comprehensive training and guidance for caregivers and individuals to honor and navigate end of life. The guidance of a Death Doula has been with us since the beginning of time. Now we are called in our communities to reclaim, at a grassroots level, the sacred passage of our dying.
