“Six in ten adults in the US have a chronic disease and four and ten adults have two or more.” That comes directly from the Center for Disease Control & Prevention. That means that our chances in the United States of having a chronic disease or caring for somebody with a chronic disease, or both are more than 60%! Regarding therapy, that means: - You are not alone. - There are lots of tools out there to explore to get you through, and a therapist may be one of them.
I focus on listening to your grief story and supporting you in whatever comes next – because only you may decide that. I offer active listening, supportive presence, and emotional support as a baseline, and then we go from there.
We begin aging from the moment we're born. Naturally, that concept looks different for somebody in their teens versus somebody who is in their 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s. I focus on aging as a developmental stage and assist you in designing a plan and approach that works for you regarding whatever you are dealing with - whether it's mental health, social health, issues related to physical health, grief and loss, or all of the above.
