Hi! My name is Carla, the owner of A Venerated Death: End of Life. I am an End of Life Coach, Death Doula & Midwife, Home Funeral Guide and Funeral Celebrant. I received both of my End of Life Coaching & Death Doula certifications through my course work with the Conscious Dying Institute in Boulder, Colorado. I also studied under Olivia Bareham from Sacred Crossings in LA, where I was given the wisdom and tools to help advocate and support families wanting to give their loved ones the sacred art of home funerals and after body care. I also received my Funeral Celebrant Certificate through my course work with Olivia as well.

I am currently a volunteer at Denver Hospice where I continue to learn and expand my understanding and experiences working with the dying. This work and the wisdom it holds is and will be a life long journey for me and I am always continuing to broaden my learning, education and knowledge in the Death Doula field.

I host a monthly Death Discussion and a Parent Loss Grief Circle for individuals like herself that have lost a parent in their 20's and 30's. I am passionate about normalizing the topic of death and dying in our everyday conversations. I have sat bedside to many people in their final days and I hope to help my community bring death back to its scared place through my End of Life Care Service offerings. I meet people within this part of life with a radical presence of non-judgment, support and a bold vulnerability.

"My role is to be a supportive advocate for you & your loved ones choices and needs at end of life in a seamless and intentional way.”
