RN, BSN, Certified in Hospice and Palliative Care
End-of-Life Educator / Reiki Practitioner
I teach classes about how to care for someone at the end-of-life. Using personal and professional anecdotes, I draw on my 24 years of nursing experience. Though dying is unique to the individual spirit, personality, and disease process, we can generally anticipate how one will decline and what to expect when they are dying. When we know what to expect, we are not operating in a crisis state, we can function from a place of love and presence.
Reiki is a complementary healing technique that promotes stress reduction and deep relaxation. When you are in a relaxed state, it's easier to access your body's innate wisdom and your body's ability to heal. Reiki can also offer clarity and insight, soften anxiety, lighten suffering, and improve overall mood.
I teach classes and offer individual Reiki sessions in Portland. My services are on hold right now due to COVID-19, but I am always sending love and light and blessings to you all.
