My Approach to Helping

I provide online wellbeing and resilience services for people in caregiver roles through skills training or mental health therapy. My services are meant for a range of paid or unpaid caregivers. I specialize in caregivers supporting children or grown ups who have developmental disabilities. Following your needs, I provide you with a combination of restorative support and skill development, so that you can be more resilient as a professional or loved one.

I am a mindfulness and self-compassion oriented mental health therapist. My primary background areas of training, work, and expertise are in mental health, developmental disabilities, mindfulness, and compassion.

I am also a caregiver and have worked for many years in various caregiver roles. I know firsthand the caregiver experience, how significant the work is, and the mental health struggles that come with it. I have lived and practiced mindfulness and self-compassion, to bring the best quality of care that I can to supporting people as a caregiver.

These are some of my main sources that influence how I practice and what I have a lot of experience helping others use to fulfill their therapy goals and develop their wellbeing and resilience skills:

-Mindfulness (based on my decade of teaching mindfulness, and the caregiver’s individual interests and needs)
“Mindfulness is a natural part of being human, can be easily accessed, and can greatly improve one’s quality of life. Mindfulness can be key to resilience, especially in the face of personally challenging work, like caregiving.”https:mykindnesstherapy.commindfulness

-Self-Compassion (based on the Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook)
“Research shows that self-compassion is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal to create health and happiness. Self-compassion motivates us to achieve our goals, cope with adversity, take responsibility for our actions, and care for others in a sustainable way.” https:self-compassion.org

-Emotion Regulation (based on an adaptation of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy designed for people with intellectual disabilities and their caregivers)
“The Skills System is a user-friendly set of emotion regulation skills, designed to help people of various ages and abilities, manage emotions. Learning how to regulate emotions enables us to be present in the moment and be more effective–even in stressful situations.” https:skillssystem.com

-Character Strengths (training based on the VIA Institute Character Strengths assessment and resources)
“If we are conscious of our own strengths, we are more likely to recognize strengths in others, leading to more harmonious relationships which are especially needed during these challenging times.” https:www.viacharacter.org

More Info About My Practice

I am focused on serving people in caregiver roles. Caregiving is a personally and socially significant role, whether you are a parent, healthcare worker, hired caregiver, or another type of professional or familial caregiver. Caregiving is long-term work and deeply personal. As a caregiver, you can frequently feel exhausted, overwhelmed, stressed, angry, frustrated, irritated, guilty, helpless, hopeless, depressed, anxious, uncertain, worried, low self-esteem, grief, or resentful. You need support for doing such deeply personal and long-term work.

You need a therapeutic space that is supportive, restorative, open, safe, warm, and receptive. You need to feel that you can have a moment to exhale, to rest, to be heard, to heal, and to grow.

You want to bring the best that you can to your caregiving work. You, like many caregivers, might believe deeply in the work you are doing. However, like many caregivers, you may often neglect your mental health and end up caregiving from a place of burn out, without even realizing it. You need support and skills to be well and resilient through the years of your deeply personal caregiving work.

You don’t need to be in a caregiver crisis to start therapy. You and the person or people you care for will benefit more, the sooner you start receiving therapeutic support. Schedule on my website a free initial call to see if you want to start services with me. Services are easy to use and all online. I can serve anyone in Wisconsin.

The current coronavirus pandemic has placed unique burdens on professionals and loved ones in caregiver roles. Caregivers under normal circumstances are doing some of the hardest and most critical work in our society. I want to offer essential support to these amazing caregivers. I am here for you.

Schedule through my website a free initial call to see if you want to start services with me. Services are easy to use and all online. Appointments are video call sessions. Scheduling, billing, payment, and paperwork are done through a confidential and secure online therapy platform. Payment is by creditdebit card. My training services can get covered by CLTS and the Wisconsin’s Family Caregiver Support Program for eligible caregivers. I can serve caregivers anywhere in Wisconsin.
