Serving those at end-of-life & their loved ones


Hi, I’m Karen

I serve people and families at end-of-life and those grieving past, present and future losses.

I also write on living a nourishing life amid loss and change.

It’s a FREE community service.


Support for the dying (& their people)

Do you need support and positivity, a warm heart and a helping hand? I love to enhance your quality of life with reverence and love…


Companioning patients in Raglan

I companion hospice patients and their families in their own homes.

It is my privilege to sit with people at end-of-life.


Writing on life, death, grief & transformation

Writing on living life in the present moment, while not shying away from life’s hard questions ...

You turned the catastrophic loss of my beloved son into something I could accept and move forward from with love. Your empathy, compassion and understanding have helped me honour my son’s memory and to grow through grief both personally and spiritually.
