About

If you are caring for an older adult with whom you have a relationship, you may find that it can be quite complicated, regardless of how good the quality of the relationship is or has been. The emotional and physical demands of caring for older adults are often overlooked and underestimated and I am here to help support you during the ups and downs of this journey. By providing therapy for caregivers who are working through the complexity of their caregiving role, I can help them maintain their sense of self-worth, integrity, and identity.
I have over 17 years of experience working with older adults and their caregivers in a variety of settings (inpatient psychiatric care, hospice, palliative care, and bereavement). I have worked extensively with various community supports in the Greater Boston area and can help connect you to resources for yourself and/or the person you are caring for.
Living in a society that does not recognize the importance of informal caregivers can further perpetuate confusion, stigma, and loneliness for caregivers. I have a passion to help support people in taking on this tremendous responsibility. I welcome you to call me to see if we would be a good fit and see how I might be able to help.
