CHANGING CONVERSATIONS ABOUT DEATH AND DYING
DEMOCRATIZING DEATHCARE THROUGH
SUPPORT, SERVICE, COMMUNITY, EDUCATION, AND OUTREACH
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA AND SURROUNDING AREAS. DISTANCE SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE OUTSIDE SERVICE AREA.
Understanding the options that we have in the dying process can give us a sense of control over the final stage of life. With information and support, we can take back our power over the closing of our circle. In doing so, we can find some measure of peace for ourselves and give the gift of peace to those that we leave behind.
HELLO, MY NAME IS VANESSA.
I AM AN END-OF-LIFE CONSULTANT, COMMUNITY DEATH EDUCATOR, SECULAR CELEBRANT, AND HOME FUNERAL GUIDE.
I teach individuals, families, and communities about death and dying, legacy projects, community-led funerals and after-death care, green burial options, and more. I work with individuals to create an end-of-life plan, which can include comfort measures, advance plan advocacy, vigil and companionship, and assistance with client/family/health care provider communication. I craft custom secular ceremonies for living wakes, funerals, and life celebrations. I am particularly committed to compassionately serving 2SLGBTQIA+ clients and members of other underserved communities.
Whether you are planning for the end-of-life or just want to become more comfortable talking about death, I am deeply honored to walk alongside you during this phase of life.
