Who Hires Me:

  • People that want & need assistance finding resources regarding a loved one’s or their own death.
  • Those who are overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin surrounding a death or the dying process.
  • Folks that desire to die in a way that is authentic to them if & when possible. This could mean the surrounding people, religious or spiritual needs, the environment, or getting the most out of remaining time.
  • Those who need a safe space within which to discuss the issues of death & dying.

Bedside Companion

To provide company, companionship, or to even read a favourite book aloud.

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)

MAiD is a legal choice in Canada for those who meet the eligibility criteria. Help connect to doctors or a hospice that will complete necessary paperwork. May be present during ingestion and at time of death.

Research Support

Not sure about regulations or tired of endless Google searches turning up nothing? I can help support research or direct you to the appropriate resources.

Living Funerals/Goodbye Parties

Who doesn’t want to plan one last hurrah with all your favourite things? This could mean a backyard BBQ, an intimate gathering or anything in-between. I love to brainstorm the sensory things you’d like to experience one last time.


Swedish “Death Cleaning”: this is the process of de-cluttering and reorganizing your belongings ahead of dying to ease the process for you and your loved ones.
