Marisa Rose Verrier
My passion is being of service to others. My journey began in a classroom setting in the Pacific Northwest, working with Severely Emotionally Disturbed children for 15 years. I took those skills with me when I moved to Los Angeles, and organized, coordinated and managed the High Noon Western Americana Antique Show and Auction, held in AZ. One of the biggest components of my job was accommodating the needs of others. In this scenario, it was special clients, including famous artists, authors, celebrities, film actors, the elite and their entourage. Though this world was fast-paced and exciting, I believed that I had a higher calling.
Those majestic Rocky Mountains pulled me back to my beloved Colorado, where I began a path of spiritual work, which included becoming an Intuitive Energy Healer, an Angelic Reiki Master, a Spiritual Counselor, Interfaith Minister, Meditation Teacher and Medium.
Through my healing work and mediumship, I found that I could help my clients to overcome their worst fears, including their fear of death. This led me to explore my own inner work around death, and the calling to be of service to others at the end of life.
Being present with a family and their dying pet is a benevolent and humbling experience. It is my honor to hold space for animals as they journey towards the rainbow bridge.
Pets are irreplaceable members of our family, and as such, their death can hurt very deeply. As a Companion-Animal End-of-Life Doula, I provide compassionate, in-home care and hospice support for senior pets, as well as those with chronic or terminal illness, and holistic and spiritual support for their human family.
I believe all life is Sacred, and in the circle of life, the end of life can be as beautiful as the beginning. I am also an LGBTQIA+ ally and advocate.

- Pet Respite Care, Pet Hospice Care, Intuitive Animal Communication

It was back in 2016 when my best friend, Christine and I took a year-long seminary program, together, in Lafayette, CO, that we first heard the term “doula.” It’s certainly not a common, everyday word, and if you’re like most people, you may not be familiar with it, either.
