Terminal Illness Support
Meeting you where you are on your journey with kindness and compassion. Facing one’s mortality can cause us to question many of our beliefs. I provide spiritual guidance and empowerment to strengthen your faith and embrace your soul’s wisdom. Even though our physical body may be declining and will not be able to provide a home for our soul any longer, forgiveness, deepening our love for self, creating peace with our mortality can bring profound healing at end of life. Helping to support grieving loved ones better understand the process, respecting decisions that you have been made.
ADVANCED CARE PLANNING
It is said that planning is an act of love or a “gift”, for our loved ones and ourselves. When you create a clear plan, everyone involved in your care will be aware of your needs and wants. Reviewing what is in place, you will receive clarity to create what else is needed to ensure your wishes are honored. You can feel at ease everything will be taken care of that is important to you. Facilitating discussions while using “My Voice Advanced Care Planning Guide” regarding your values, wishes and beliefs, ensuring they will be heard, respected and honoured.
Most people face difficult decisions at end of life. For some, understanding the options and resources can give them a sense of control. Open, honest heartfelt conversations are critical so that you can make informed decisions. I can facilitate those conversations with your loved ones and healthcare providers so that your wishes are known.
Depending on where you are on your journey or how much support you have from loved ones, I am here to companion as needed. I will be there to support, listen, be in friendship, someone you can trust to hold confidentiality.

Our medical system is challenging and many times we are required to be our own advocate. In times of illness it can be difficult to do this and some may not have family support available. I will work alongside you to help navigate the system, advocating to ensure you receive the best care and respect you deserve. It is of the utmost importance for you to have all the options to make informed decisions and ensure your wishes are heard and honoured.
