Who We Are

You may have heard of a birthing Doula or midwife. They provide support and assist folks laboring life into the world. Well, an End- of -Life Care Specialist / Death Doula helps individuals labor out of this world. We can provide a wide variety of support services for people who have a chronic or terminal illness, people seeking to have a clear plan for their end of life journey, or folks nearing the end of life and require comfort care and so much more.

We can help educate what happens to the body at the end of life and what to expect during this process in hopes of reducing fear and the unknown. We will assist individuals and families consider specific customized options to empower and help individuals make peace with their circumstances and lessen the burden on those left behind.

We can also help educate about different burial options from traditional to green and everything in between. We also provide respite care. We provide comfort care such as Reiki, to help with pain management and reduce stress. In addition, help plan an Advanced Care Directive and /or Legacy Project. We can also participate in the active vigil process of the dying and are on call for this.

When life becomes dark and scary there are two types of people in this world- those who run away, and those who run towards. We are the ones you call in the impossible times…We do not fear death but hope to empower you to not fear it either. Just as birth can be hard, scary and full of unknowns, so is death; none of us will escape it;  so my hope and mission is to bring hope and light and share the beauty in these tender moments. I’m so honored to do this sacred work.

You may have heard the term “reiki massage or reiki treatments” more recently. But what is it? Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.  As an Advanced Reiki Practitioner under the 
USUI SHIKI RYOHO of Reiki Method of Natural Healing. I am specifically trained in this practice and I use this method of healing with my patients to lower stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure and cortisol in the body, and lessen chronic pain and reduce inflammation throughout the body . In addition, my patients have reported better sleep, lifted moods for longer periods of time and reported to have over all higher quality of life after receiving these treatments.

Reiki is not just for those later in life or terminally ill, quite the opposite in fact. Many Reiki clients are young, active, healthy individuals looking to add holistic treatments into their lifestyle. Many athletes and individuals recovering from surgery or other injuries often use Reiki Treatment to lessen down time, speed up recovery and improve pain, soreness and stiffness.

Why Choose Healing Hearts House?

I am a certified and trained counselor with dual degrees in Psychology and Interpersonal Relationship Management. I am also a certified End of Life Care Specialist and certified Advanced Reiki Practitioner. It is through the unique combination of all three of these therapeutic modalities that the Healing Hearts House LLC  can provide multiple disciplinary approaches to individuals and their families looking to improve their lives or end of life care. In utilizing all of these tools and resources we can provide a comprehensive understanding of what our clients and their families need in order to serve their individual needs. The Healing Hearts House is here to hold your hand through life changes; whether you are looking to improve your over all health through Reiki and mindfulness; or you are later in life and wish to start planing out your Funeral Arrangements or Advanced Care Directives to your final days where we can provide comfort care, respite care and so much more.

One of the most important ways we can assist our patients and their families is through advocacy. The medical community can often times be overwhelming and disconnected to say the least. It is my job to help assist and support my patients in asking the hard questions.  Having conversations with patients and their families about how they would like their last few months to look.  It is my job to navigate the inter complexities in communications between hospitals, palliative care, hospice and more.  As well as execute their wishes to the best of my abilities.
