“Dementia Caregiver Specialist” – featured in Dementia Connections Magazine, Fall 2018. Caregiving can be uniquely rewarding, and incredibly demanding. Caring for someone with a mild cognitive impairment, or dementia, may leave you feeling overwhelmed, sad, anxious, and irritable. At times you may experience frustration and resentment - sometimes followed by guilt and/or shame for having these feelings? There may be historical relationship issues involved, further complicating matters. Feeling like your life is on hold - having the time to take care of yourself, do the things you enjoy, may be a distant memory.
Caregiving can also impact relationships - partners, siblings, friends - impact family dynamics and/or create family conflict. I can help. Together we'll explore your unique situation and develop a plan to help you move forward. We'll try some new things out in our sessions, that can help get you unstuck, and moving towards the life you want.
Because I already know how many balls you're juggling, I offer Telehealth counselling so that you can easily access our sessions from the comfort of your own home, by secure video or by phone. Still unsure if counselling can help - call me, we can schedule a phone or video call, for a complimentary 20 minute session.
