“Where do we begin?”

STEP 1: Everything starts with a quick call

Let’s spend a little time getting to know each other and discussing your situation. This call usually lasts 30-60 minutes and is 100% free. Think coffee with a new friend.

STEP 2: Identify your greatest needs

If we feel like there’s an opportunity for me to support you, we’ll schedule a discovery session to dive more into your needs, fears, and aspirations.

STEP 3: Create a roadmap or wellness plan

Whether you need support post-diagnosis or have a loved one nearing end of life, having a plan allows us to walk the path together one step at a time.

“It's been such a relief knowing Lily is in good hands, receiving the love and care she needs when I'm away. I can’t say enough about how awesome that feeling is after the ongoing challenges to find respite care for my daughter. It's really hard on parents who need to be available 24/7 for a child who needs assistance, so for Michelle to arrive and make the transition flawlessly was both wonderful and astounding. In such a short period of time, Michelle became an integral part of Lily's care team…her village.”

“I could not have imagined how valuable Michelle's services would be. Because of her presence, I was given the space to fully say goodbye to my mother on her last day. This process would not have felt complete without Michelle and I am eternally grateful for her.”
