As a mom and grandmother, I understand how important it is to be truly heard in times of transition and crisis. We all appreciate being in a warm inclusive environment in which to explore all the options. With over 30 years in an acute health care setting, I’ve helped thousands of people through their struggles, finding hope, building resilience, and growing beyond their life situations.
Changes in physical health, mental health, or relationships necessitates navigation into foreign territory. This process may feel confusing, overwhelming, even devastating. Whether this is your own health or that of a loved one, there is good reason to be optimistic with my skilled and caring guidance.
