Hi, I'm Mel. As a death doula, I help you navigate the dying process.

A life-limiting diagnosis or unexpected death changes the world for you and your loved ones.

As your death doula, I work with you to give you and your loved ones the death, memorial, and legacy that best reflects acts of loving connection.

I also help families who are experiencing an “unexpected death” navigate their choices of body disposition, memorial planning, and lasting legacies of love.

I'm Mel, your advocate for compassionate care at the end-of-life.

Use this section to describe your company and the services you offer. You could share your company’s story and details about why you are in business. The goal is to create a connection with the visitor and give them confidence to work with you.

Client Testimonials

With Mel’s guidance, my brothers and I were able to have the discussions we were afraid to have because we were afraid that asking personal questions may upset him. Instead, my father was relieved to be able to discuss with us what he wanted for his memorial service.
I can’t thank Mel enough for the gift she gave me in being able to have that last beautiful experience with my aunt. I will never forget the connection and deep love I felt being able to share memories and feelings with her. I’m incredibly grateful to Mel for giving me peace and acceptance of my aunt’s journey to the other side.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Mel’s expertise, compassion, and dedication to ensuring a peaceful and dignified transition of my loved ones. Mel has left an indelible mark on my heart. I recommend Mel to anyone seeking support during the dying process.
