Julie provides practical, emotional, & spiritual support to clients living with life-limiting conditions. She offers trained grief support to adults and children as they navigate their journeys.
Julie often works with clients who are still completely healthy but are interested in planning ahead. She facilitates important conversations which explore their values, wishes, and criteria for a meaningful quality of life. With her knowledge and expertise, they work together to create a plan which leaves them feeling empowered and their families feeling relieved. A couple will create individual plans but share in the conversation so that each can ask questions or offer suggestions, and both will feel involved in the process. This plan is a working document which can be altered at a later date as circumstances change.
Julie is dedicated to helping her clients prepare for their own death, or that of a loved one. She is committed to helping them reframe it, from being a medical experience to a personal and meaningful experience which brings a family closer together. She will make suggestions, help to relieve some natural anxiety, offer compassionate listening and non-judgemental support. If asked, she will offer vigil support at the very end of life. She will also provide current information on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) and support any client who is declared eligible for this program.
