“I started working with Rita in January 2021 after a few tryouts with other Grief Doulas. Within the first five minutes of us connecting over the phone I knew she was someone who could really dig in and help from a cellular level. She was soft and warm. She listened to me intently, but she also, right from the bat, made me tap into my own strength.
Rita came into my life at one of the most difficult, painful, fearful, and grief-stricken times when my mother was critically ill with complicated circumstances. Where every day was a roller coaster and the long-term outcome was completely unknown. We started working together 3 days a week, as an only child, losing my father 5 years prior, and having 2 young children to raise, the support she provided was critical. We developed a deep bond over the course of the past year that I can now look back on and see as one of the most profound support relationships I have ever experienced.
Rita has not only helped me navigate the last year of my mother’s life, her death, and the immense grief that came with it, but she also stepped in as a Life Coach as we naturally and simultaneously did deep inner work that has literally transformed my life.
Rita is someone that has been through real deal grief, the ups and downs of life, and has come through a transformed, ascended woman. She has a gift that is absolutely awe-inspiring and is meant to be shared with this world. She has tools, practices, and many techniques in her toolbox that can help you through whatever it is that inspired you to seek support. If you are fortunate enough for life to have brought Rita into your world, know you are blessed, you are held, and there is light on the other side.”
