    COUNSELING AND CONSULTING SERVICES FOR AGING ADULTS, THEIR FAMILIES, AND CAREGIVERS

    Together, we can transform the aging journey.

    WHAT IS FIRST-CLASS AGING?

    First Class Aging is what happens when older adults and their families move from merely coping with and surviving the aging journey to truly living and thriving. It’s time to say goodbye to worry, indecision, anxiety, and depression — and increase your overall well-being.

    Gain the tools, support, and guidance you and your loved ones need to live and age with more vitality and happiness no matter the circumstances.

    I am passionate about helping older adults and their family members and caregivers experience less stress and more joy during this ever-changing and unpredictable stage of life. Through my experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I’ve discovered a way for people navigating the journey of aging to have the best possible experience — emotionally, physically, and spiritually, and beyond.

    I’d be honored to show you the way.

    COUNSELING FOR SENIORS:
    I would like No matter what you’re going through or where you want to go, I am here to help with a personalized, goal-oriented, and compassionate approach. Whether in your private residence, an assisted living community, nursing center, via telehealth, or in my office, we’ll work together to tackle it all — from grief and anxiety to depression and loneliness.

    SUPPORT FOR CAREGIVERS
    Being a caregiver for an aging parent is an overwhelming — yet important and rewarding — role to fill. If you’re in the “sandwich generation,” it can be even more difficult, and caregiver burnout is very real. Let’s talk about what you can do to take care of yourself in order to be emotionally and physically available for everyone who needs you, including Mom or Dad. Don’t live near your aging loved ones? I can also be the eyes and ears on the ground for adult children and family members who live at a distance.

    WALK-AND-TALK THERAPY
    Life is about moving forward — physically and mentally. Why talk while moving? A growing body of research shows that physical activity can decrease anxiety and depression, and improve overall mood, which is where walk-and-talk therapy works wonders. And for those who use a wheelchair, we can roll-and-talk. Whatever your ability, you set the pace!

    TOUGH CONVERSATIONS
    Every person and family is unique, which means there are unique challenges that can pop up. Families and can often benefit from an objective, skilled, and compassionate professional to help facilitate “tough conversations” that are often needed during this phase of life.

    HEALTHCARE LIAISON
    As an experienced Medical Social Worker, you can rest assure knowing that the lines of communication between doctors and other healthcare providers are wide open — whether for you or your loved one.

    EMPOWERING EDUCATION
    Knowledge is power. I help educate older adults and their families about what resources are available for healthcare and other relevant services, as well as make referrals and connections when needed.
