My life’s purpose, the focus of my studies and my work for the last couple of decades has been to develop my innate gifts as a bridge between the physical and subtle realities, specifically in relation to Death and its mysteries.

I do not see Death as The End; I see it as a journey of transformation, a journey of healing, and a journey of possibilities.

It continues to be my honor to guide and support those who wish to engage with their end of life, those caregiving for their loved ones at the end of their life, as well as those who are grieving a loss.

Educational Background

To come to this knowledge and understanding, I have studied most intensively with Kathleen Leeson, RH, a Shamanic Healer and Clinical Herbalist in the Ottawa area who has guided me to embody the Wise Woman Tradition and taught me Shamanism of the Celtic Tradition.

I have a Palliative Care Certificate from Algonquin College, as well as have volunteered at a hospice and have worked with clients at the end of life as a Shamanic Death Doula and Shamanic Practitioner since 2008.

In 2019, I graduated from the Carolyn Myss CMED Institute as a Certified Archetypal Consultant. Becoming knowledgeable about archetypal patterns has been integral in expanding my experience, knowledge, and understanding of patterns in the cycle of life, death and rebirth.
