I LOVE MY WORK. If I wake up and remember I have a Death Guide gig that day, I leap out of bed.

As seen on:

    Not only is Bones a knowledgable naturalist, coach and tracker, after three years of study, she became Maine’s first INELDA certified Death Doula or preferably Death Guide. For ten years now, she has worked with clients nearing the end of their lives to confront the fear, anxiety, and hopes surrounding death. A pioneer in this field, Bones loves introducing death work to caregivers and other health workers inspiring them through trainings to incorporate these skills in their daily work. She strongly believes in the benefits of being more open about mortality.

    With compassion and loving honesty, Bones will help guide you through a life review, create a legacy project, plan a vigil, explore options for the body after death, and discover ritual. All of this greatly increasing the chances of pulling off a good death : )

    You don't even have to be the one who's dying to benefit from this Death Guide's services.

    Bones works with family and friends of those “heading out” and has experience in post-mortem situations as well such as sudden “exits”, abortions and miscarriages.

    If it’s time to get your ducks in line so you can focus on living, dying or mourning, Bones is the human you may want to spend time with!
