Hello. My name is Astrid Balzer. I am a trained end-of-life doula. I have a Master in Social Work. I have 25 years of experience working with children, families and adults in the mental health field. I retired early and moved back home to take care of my parents. I became an end of life doula after helping my father who died after a year battle with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. I also assisted my aunt at the end of her life with Dementia. I learned first hand how I could have benefitted from having someone who had been down this path before, to guide me. It became my passion.
My first language is Spanish.
