Mentorship + Education for Helping Professionals
What is Mentorship?
Mentorship is 1:1 sessions for helping professionals including those in fields like coaching, hospice, nursing, therapy, funeral home services, chaplain, alternative medicine, group facilitators, social work, and more. I’m happy to work with you if your work is in regard to death-related OR non-death-related support.
We can explore in many ways to help you get unstuck or to enhance your creative practice and professional skills.
Using experiential, creative, personal development techniques, we can find ways for you to:
- be more present with clients by tapping into your intuitive balance,
- avoid burnout by expanding self-care to include community and relationship,
- exercise your resilience and resourcefulness,
- tap into innovative ideas that go beyond the limitations of “the stages of grief” and “closure,” and
- fuel your professional growth.
Offered as 1:1 sessions, available regardless of geographic location, via Zoom or tele-conference. Or if you’d like to schedule in-person, we can meet on Vashon Island, WA.
Sessions are 60 minutes ~ $150/session
Note to Creative Grief Studio Students: I cannot offer Mentorship to Creative Grief Studio students currently enrolled in our Certification Course. I am available to you either before you enroll or after you’ve completed the live calls for the Course.

First Friday Happy Hour
Monthly Happy Hour for Death + Grief Workers
Free but registration required.
First Friday of each month at 1pm Pacific.
As Creative Grief Practitioners ourselves, we’ve been talking about how hard these pandemic years have hit us. We thought to maybe open a once-a-month, free range, space to clink coffee cups and check in with each other as humans. We don’t have a particular agenda for our meet ups. This is a very improv kind of vibe, holding space for whatever is alive in the moment for each of us. If there is an “aim” with our Happy Hours, it is to have us all feel support and connection even as we navigate the difficult stuff of our personal and professional lives! Bring your coffee or tea cup and join us on the First Friday of each month!
