Welcome, Caregiver!

Wishing you could love your life again, even while taking care of your aging parents and your children?

You are in the right place if you are taking care of someone with dementia and…

You are not quite ready if…

Why work with the Emotional Support Coach for Caregivers?

When I started talking openly about my caregiving experience, the question I got most often was how I did it. 

Honestly, I didn’t know how I did it. I was trying to keep my mother and my child alive while surviving myself. It took me years to recover and when I was back to life, I started looking back at my experience to figure out why it ended up so badly and what I could have done differently. 

You and I both know no matter how hard it is to be a caregiver, we care, and that’s why we don’t give up. We want to do our best and find ways to make it better for our loved ones. 

But when we only find resources on how to take care of someone with dementia and not how to take care of ourselves beyond juice cleanses and cosmetic procedures, we cannot go for long. 

I became certified as a Master Coach, and combining the understanding of dementia with the emotional support caregivers needed to thrive got my clients back to living their lives while they are on their caregiving journey. 

In the caregiving world, we don’t talk about our thoughts and feelings much. Not when a gazillion appointments have to be arranged, your parents act as kids and your kids don’t get much of your attention. Most caregivers will choose to sacrifice themselves instead of investing in coaching or therapy. 

But this is what I know to be true because I see it again and again:

Coaching that allows you to understand and accept what happens in your life and to release the feelings that are building up and about to explode is going to help you become a resilient caregiver who thrives.

What would it mean to stop settling for a “new normal” you didn’t ask for and truly love your life again?

Imagine what it will feel like when you are:
