Speaker – Keynote, Small Group

Stories, experiences, and information gently encourage people to soften their hearts and minds to death and dying. I help audiences to reimagine death and dying to be more than doom and gloom, rather a natural, honoring, and sacred part of our life cycle that’s been with us since birth. In fact, we are dying a little bit each day. There is nothing to fear.

I share information, enhanced by PowerPoint slides; field questions; and empower people to shift and transform their views on these sensitive topics. Leaning into death and dying, revelations come to us, and we release things that no longer are true. This helps us to feel prepared and at ease. We can fully experience end-of-life living with greater peace of mind.

Remergence Workshops: Beginning the Journey, Going Deeper, and the Remergence Tookit

Beginning the Journey, the initial workshop, is available both online and in-person in October 2023.


The Beginning the Journey workshop consists of five, two-hour modules that explore the relationship between energy centers of our body and loss, death, and dying. Understanding the energy centers of connection, courage, communication, and spiritual empowerment and how they impact us, or our dying loved ones, shifts and transforms our anxieties and fears, so we can move toward ease and peace of mind. How do revelations, thoughts that no longer are true for us and need to be released, and remergence—the time when our spirits leave our bodies—affect preparation?

There are two ways to experience these workshops: Online or In-Person.


Participants sign up for the workshop on my website, inthethickofthings.com. There, they find a link to teachable.com. The cost of the initial Beginning the Journey workshop—accessible 24/7 online—is $300.


On-site delivery of the Beginning the Journey workshop is accompanied by PowerPoint slides, stories, experiential exercises, and a workbook, plus ongoing Q&A sessions. For group presentations, with a minimum of 15 people, the cost is $3000. Larger groups? Let’s discuss.

Death Midwife

Certified and NEDA Proficient (National End-of-Life Doula Alliance)

A holistic companion, I offer service and information to dying loved ones and their families by providing emotional, spiritual, and non-medical, practical assistance. I work alongside healthcare and deathcare professionals, offering a caring presence, expertise, and resources that enhance their care. Examples of what I provide include listening; reading or running errands; information on the dying process; Advanced Care Directives, wills, legacy letters, and obituaries; setting sacred space; and options for body disposition and home funerals. I support dying individuals and families as they bond, forgive, find beauty, and celebrate this sacred experience. Everyone has unique needs and wishes.

I begin with a no-fee, hour-long consultation to see if there is a match with personality and services. From there, services are customized and needs estimated. Fees are bundled, generally ranging from $450 – $1200, plus mileage expense outside a 30-mile radius. I also network with colleagues in the Rochester area.


Energy Healer

I offer in-person and remote energy sessions. Gifted as a conduit for healing energy, Source energy flows through me in healing vibrations and tones, offering potential for a greater well-being of people and animals. Energy healings may create greater relaxation and focus, address pain, or offer a spiritual tune-up. The demeanor and vibrance of those receiving the healing energy often improves. Clients may recount images, colors, or feelings that hold special meaning for them. Additionally, I may use a combination of essential oils, sound, and stones with healing properties.

In-person healing sessions with check-in are $100/hour + mileage outside a 30-mile radius. Remote healing sessions with check-in are $50/30 minutes.



Nature is a grounding force and an effective healer. If you can’t get outside to let it soothe you, we have taken images and sounds from nature to inspire you. Now that your heart and mind are full of affirming possibilities to help you walk with loss, death, and dying, please enjoy these two calming music videos below to help focus, settle, and uplift you.

Remergence Workshops

I was so moved in the presentation of everything is energy. I learned of other methods of burial, death, loss, and that change is growth. I loved the PowerPoint slides. It made the flow easy to follow. I love the way the class shifted to accommodate everyone. I will use the pre-work activities again to see my growth. It made me think. The program was so valuable for the emotional and evolving space I am in. Helped me more than words can say!


Confidential  Conversations 

Thank you! I’ve had a great cognitive and emotional breakthrough thanks to you.


Remergence Workshops

Certainly I felt “shifted” by this work in a positive way. I valued the questions posed, activities suggested, and tying it all into the Chakra Centers. I like your calm and inviting teaching style, and you inspired my thinking along these lines. I valued my experience in taking this class and am interested in taking the next program.


Remergence Workshops

The workbook is an incentive to pursue your careful, meticulous, even rigorous program to focus on end-of-life issues with less fear and apprehension.


Remergence Workshops

I know the concept of greater energy…but this course helped me identify the work I have yet to do. Wonderful meditations and list of resources to explore!


Remergence Workshops

This course was so much more than I expected. I feel less separation in life. This incredible experience has put me on a new journey.


Remergence Workshop

We took the Remergence Workshops in 2018, and now, three years later, we face the reality of Mark’s mortality. Those workshops really helped us to make some hard decisions and deeply explore our feelings. Mark signed the POLST (Physician-Written Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment) and is now DNR/DNI status. The work you did to create such a special avenue to verbalize, we are at peace. THANK YOU!!
