Navigating grief is a skill and the only way out is through.
And this path is one that many people have not learned to develop a relationship with until faced with loss, as it is happening and unfolding in real time.
As your Grief Companion, I offer a different form of support than that of traditional Grief Counselors or Therapists. My philosophy of grief is not based in a pathological model (i.e mental health) but rather, that grief is a normal and natural human experience that must be witnessed and expressed.
It is my intention to support your personal grief journey through storytelling, somatic expression, ritual and meaning making.
Sessions are available virtually or in-person depending on location.
$850 for 10 hrs of total support
$1,920 for 24 hrs of total support
First step- Explore– Our first step is to Explore. This is a free 30 minute consultation. During our time together, I will ask some questions to learn about you/or your loved ones needs, challenges and obstacles. I will educate you on the services offered by New Dawn Comfort Care. I will provide basic information for resources that are needed acutely to keep you/your loved one safe.
If you decide to continue working with me, I offer 2 follow-up sessions that allow us to put a comprehensive Comfort Care Plan into place so the process is not too overwhelming. From there we can schedule visits as often as are needed.
Second step- Plan Together. In person or virtually, together we will create your personal Comfort Care Plan that meets the needs of the seriously ill person. I encourage families to invite core supports to this first meeting (anyone who will be in the primary caregiving role). This holistic plan is based in understanding the individuals physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and practical needs. This step is best made while the ill person is still able to speak for themselves, however it can be made during any point of the end of life process. From there, we may set a tentative visitation or check-in schedule.
Each planning session takes about 2 hours. However, you are in the lead in this process.
Third step-Ongoing Support. After our Comfort Care Planning session, and after we have set a regular schedule, I offer a third session to explore ways you can receive additional support you need as a caregiver along with additional resources and educational offerings provided by New Dawn Comfort Care. This session we may explore legacy projects, planning for time of death, and grief support. These follow up sessions can be scheduled for as long as is needed.
End of Life Doulas do not replace hospice care. Hospice is the medical manager of your loved ones’ care. Doulas cannot dose or administer medication prescribed by hospice. Because hospice is not present 24/7, doulas become an additional eyes and ears for the patient and family that can help bridge gaps in hospice care by:
The amount of support I can provide is entirely up to you.
There are no contracts, no commitments and no obligations to work with me.
