If you're looking for help then this is probably a very stressful time for you and/or your loved one. There is major transition going on -- and some of it might not be welcome. I want to add to your ease, decrease your burden, make this transition easier. You're looking for someone to entrust yourself or your loved one with. You probably want someone you can depend on, who's on time, reliable, conscientious, experienced, dedicated, professional, competent. I am. And I imagine you also want someone who has "soft-skills": intuitive, compassionate, deep listener, empathetic, honest, considerate, patient. That's me too. Put them together and that means you or your loved one will receive care from someone who can hold compassionate space, listen deeply, respond to needs, anticipate what's needed, while also providing competently for health and daily tasks. In addition, I respect the people I work with. Too often, people and professionals treat sick, disabled or elderly people as incompetent, invisible or childlike. I talk to them as adults (if they're mentally capable) and people. I ask health professionals to address the person directly, ask their questions to them, and give them eye contact. I have counseling, facilitating and coaching skills, as well as caring for people with injuries/aging. I am not scared of people being ill on mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual level. I can "hold space" for what comes up. Resparking the will to live after a major life change or physical trauma is something I excel at. It's a lovely dance to find the balance of inter/dependent, and try not to figuratively "step on toes" finding it. I am a certified Holistic Healthcare Practitioner from AONH (Association of Natural Health), which means I can often share healthy advice, while also working within the parameters of your current medical team. With me, you or your loved one is in excellent hands, combined with a compassionate heart, and a bright mind.
