"Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it."

~Haruki Murakami

Véronique’s approach to counselling is holistic, individual, person-centric. She is an experienced therapist, professor and advanced scholar of Social Work. Her counselling practice infuses evidence-based processes with intuitive directives based on personal experience and expertise.

As a society, we are beginning to reconsider our understanding of death and dying. We are seeking a meaningful, personal and community based involvement with the dying, death and after-death care of our loved ones. This is where a death doula can help.

Creating a collaborative community is at the heart of Art de Vivre. Our goal is to provide a safe space that infuses art therapy, healing hearts cooperative, a focus on healing practices including music, art, food and nature.

"Watching a peaceful death of a human being, reminds us of a falling star; one of a million lights in a vast sky that flares up for a brief moment only to disappear into the endless night forever."

~Elisabeth Küber-Ross
