Family Caregiving

While caring for an aging parent or sick family member can be rewarding, it is also tough. Sacrificing your time and money can lead to feelings of bitterness and regret, causing ill will toward the very people you love and want to help. With the right support system in place, caregiving, though difficult, is made manageable. Whether you are facing a specific problem or you just need a sounding board and some general guidance, a qualified mental health professional can help with caregiving challenges.

Finding small ways to replenish and nurture yourself first provides the abundant energy to care for our loved ones. Simply providing a space to vent frustrations and perceived limitations outside of family and friends is a big beginning step. I am here for you.
