I am registered in the State of California Home Care Aid Registry (#7516022156). Currently, I work for 3 organizations as a caregiver. My experience as a caregiver extends to working for Lighthouse Independent Living Services as an Independent Living Services Instructor, United Cerebral Palsy as an In-Home Trainer and Heartfelt Home Care Services working with elders. My experience as a caregiver began 18 years ago as I learned a great deal about the importance of being a caregiver as I started my caregiving responsibilities for my wife. I have a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Healthy Aging and during my studies, I volunteered to work at People's Self-Help Housing working with elders helping them with counseling, transportation and other needs. I have an interesting and funny story regarding how I saved a client from paying a $260 bill. My degree is allowing me to be a Registered Marriage and Family Therapy Intern (IMF 79643). I feel it is not only important to help the client, it is important to help the family as a whole if there is difficulty. I look forward to providing counseling support to other members of the family as needed. In addition, I have a second Master of Arts degree in Education, specializing in Counseling and Guidance. I became a School Counselor and currently maintain a school counseling credential. Before working towards becoming a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (IMF 79643), I worked with at-risk students some of whom had situations where they had lost a parent due to illness which had affected their school performance. I look forward to helping elders so they can be healthy and have the opportunity to be as self sufficient as possible.
