About Kelly Death Doula :

A New York City based and trained doula, I embrace the fact that everyone brings their own fears, beliefs, and experiences to the topic of death and dying.  All of which can make discussing and preparing for your own death difficult and scary, especially when having to do so unexpectedly.  My mission is to provide information, support and a safe space so that you feel empowered to make decisions that reflect and honor how you want to be cared for while dying and after death.  I strongly believe that when we are able to discuss these things openly, it sheds light on the darkness we carry around death and hopefully, ease some of the fear. 

What brings you to Death Cafe?

I participated in a Death Cafe in Portland, OR for a year and miss the experience.  Wanted to host my own in my new city.
