For Your Life

End Of Life Guide ~ Bereavement Support ~ Grief Coach

The dying remind us to live.

Natasja Fischer

 

Death isn’t the opposite of life, it’s is the opposite of birth.  Death is part of life.

For most of us in North America, we are so far removed from death. We fear it, we avoid it and we don’t know how to talk about it. 
We don’t want to talk about it.

It takes a village to raise a child, but it also takes a village to support the sick, the dying, the caregiver and the bereaved.  I am honoured to be a member that village.

Like grief, this kind of work does not fit neatly little boxes. It really must be customized for each person’s needs and values.  Please keep that in mind as you review some of the ways I serve my clients and their families.

Grief is not a feeling, it’s an action.

I support people who are: 

  • going through a divorce

  • adjusting to changes in their health after a critical injury, or long term illness

  • who are experiencing accessibility challenges and need their home reconfigured to better support them
    ex: transforming a main floor office to a master bedroom

  • creating systems for medical support staff while keeping your environment peaceful and beautiful, not clinical

  • planning a funeral – their own, or someone else’s

  • terminally ill and dying

  • grieving the loss of a loved one, including a pet

  • grieving and overwhelmed by sorting/packing up an estate

 

The great healer of our grief is validation, not time. 
All greif needs to be heard.
