Thank you for visiting On the Other Side!


Hello! I am Talaya Dendy, The Cancer Doula and I am dedicated to helping people that have been diagnosed with cancer, whether they are recently diagnosed or in survivorship, take care of the emotional side of cancer so that they can lead a more vibrant life in spite of cancer. 



As a cancer doula, I offer individual doula support and group coaching services. My role as your cancer doula will be to help you feel supported, learn more about your options, find hope, and take action to move forward. Your doula sessions will include the following:

  • An individualized approach to your needs, which leads to the results that YOU want.

  • A complete overview of your diagnosis and situation.

  • We will go through a questionnaire, which will allow you to go into more detail about the topics that you want to be covered during our doula sessions.

  • I will share information regarding lifestyle, self-care, and integrative approaches to help improve your quality of life and survivorship. Yes, SURVIVORSHIP. Your future!

Some of the BENEFITS of working with me as your cancer doula:


  • It's all about WHAT MATTERS TO YOU!

  • I serve as a skilled doula and support person who understands and is FOCUSED on cancer patients and their families. I am dedicated to LISTENING and ENGAGING with you to help address your needs.

  • I save you time, effort, and energy by doing the research to find information about your type of cancer and the treatments that are recommended by your doctor, resources available, etc. This will prevent you from drowning in information.

  • I help to bridge the communication gap between you, your oncologist, and the healthcare team. Therefore, maximizing your time in short doctor visits.

  • I help you understand your cancer treatment and survivorship plans so that you can take control of your health and make informed decisions.

  • I help you feel more satisfied with your quality of life in recovery by providing techniques to manage your emotions, reduce fear, and create peace of mind.

  •  I help pick up the pieces after your cancer treatments are complete. Let's figure out what is next and how to get there because there is LIFE during and AFTER cancer!

  • NOTE:  I am NOT a doctor and I do not offer medical advice. These services are not intended to be or serve as a substitute for, professional medical/psychological advice, examination, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health providers with any questions you may have regarding a medical or psychological condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of any information received in a session or on this website.

What is a Cancer Doula? - Talaya Dendy & Mama Bear Cancer Coach
00:00 / 00:00

"I was pre-mastectomy when I first got introduced to Talaya. I was a mess trying to put pieces together before I even knew what to do, trying to make decisions before I really had enough knowledge to forge ahead with confidence. I needed help with my lack of self-worth, self-confidence, and a purpose in life. I didn't feel like I belonged on this planet. After working with Talaya I am more confident, it shows and it attracts people. I have achieved a feeling of self-worth. As far as cancer, I feel like it was almost my obstacle I had to overcome in order to get where I am now. It takes a person who wants to forge ahead, but if that person wants to, this Doula (Talaya), can help you get to those places and provide you the ear, the research, suggestions, answers, and advice."
