I have an M. A. in Counseling Psychology and 17 years' experience in elder and disabled adult care as a privately contracted provider, and manager, for those living in their own homes. My experience includes Alzheimer's disease, dementia, Parkinson's disease, traumatic brain injury, mobility challenges, adaptive equipment, rehabilitation, and facilitating physical and occupational therapy programs. I have provided the full spectrum of in-home care needs, done it all and seen it all. I have always genuinely enjoyed this work and cherished the relationships that have formed with my clients and their families. I endeavor to embody a relationship oriented and client centered approach that focuses first on quality of life. I am also creative in addressing the social, cognitive, emotional, and physical challenges that arise in the life of those I serve, drawing on my training and experience as a professional counselor. And, lastly, I'm pretty "handy" around the house.

    John Daniel (Dan) has been a godsend for us. He has helped me with not only my mobility challenges, but also developing a very good routine of stretches and light physical therapy to keep me moving as much as possible. He's also very handy at various household projects. He has a delightful personality and is easy-going and a lot of fun to be around. I highly recommend him.
