Are you or someone you love dealing with a life-threatening illness? Whether newly diagnosed, in active treatment or nearing end-of-life, the uncertainty and fear can be overwhelming. I offer counseling to help you find peace and fulfillment in this experience, to enable you to give and receive love in ways that might previously have seemed impossible. We can explore the impact illness is having on your life and develop strategies for managing the challenges you are facing. I work with families to improve communication and I offer guidance and support to caregivers, enabling them to provide the best care possible.
My approach is compassionate and collaborative and draws on more than 30 years of experience providing person-centered, comfort focused care as a licensed clinical social worker. I have helped thousands of patients and families and I will provide you with expertise, guidance and continuity as you navigate through these challenges.
I am passionate about improving my clients' experience as they live with illness and am flexible to meet your changing needs. I am available to meet virtually, my preferred platform is Zoom. I look forward to sharing my wisdom and supporting you on your journey.
