End of Life Doula Advance Care Planning
I am a Counselor and End of Life Doula based out of Coquitlam, BC. With over 20 years of experience in the caring professions, from psychology to nursing, I am uniquely suited to work with you as you navigate through your anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief, bereavement, or health-related concerns. I have a particular interest in counselling First Responders and healthcare professionals.
Depression and Anxiety
Mood disorders such as depression and anxiety are increasingly more prevalent in today's fast-paced, pressure-driven society. I will help you develop coping strategies that assist you in regaining control and remaining an effective and functioning person, even when you don't feel like one.
Health-Related or Illness-Related Concerns
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a serious illness, or if someone you love is palliatively ill, my 20+ years as a nurse means that I will demystify the medical jargon you're being told and help guide you through your individual journey. My time spent working in ICU and pediatric critical care afforded me the insight to empathize with you. Whether you're coping with a devastating diagnosis or caring for a seriously ill loved one, I can help.
Grief and Bereavement
If you have recently suffered the loss of a loved one and need someone to assist you through the mourning process, or if you are feeling stuck in your grief and bereavement and need to talk it through with a professional, I will help you move onto the next stage of readjustment. I have been witness to and assisted families and their dying loved ones through death for over 20 years.
First Responder and Healthcare Professional Counselling
Not only do First Responders experience events that stay with them for a lifetime, so do nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals. Having been in healthcare for over 20 years, I uniquely understand what you're going through more than most counsellors, and I will help you work through those difficult feelings.
Advance Care Planning
Having been a nurse for over 20 years, I work with you well in advance of your final days to complete your Advance Care Plan that reflects your specific wishes, values, and beliefs.
