About

You don't have to go it alone. Are you an older adult or the caregiver for an older parent or spouse? Struggling to keep your balance while dealing with chronic illness or pain? Dealing with changes to your health or reduced ability to get around? All of these challenges bring fatigue, isolation, loneliness, and feelings of loss. With help, you can better understand you feelings and better meet your challenge. If you are stressed and feeling burnt out, depressed, or weighed down by anxiety, reach out for help. In therapy, you can get the support that you need to build on your strengths and thrive.
In a warm and supportive atmosphere you can get the support and practical tools that you need. As a director of the non-profit Assisted Livings, I learned first hand just how difficult it can be for caregivers and for people with health and mobility challenges. In therapy you can safely process difficult experiences and emotions. Pet therapy available
You can expect expert holistic care with compassion. Connection is important and I provide home visits (where feasible) and telehealth support for caregivers, older adults and people with chronic health and mobility issues. Your challenges affect your mind, body, and spirit. I am looking forward to helping you recover the balance that you need!
