NEW! Care Partner Coaching

Do you care for an older loved one or work in the healing or helping professions?

There is plenty of evidence that you are at a higher-than-average risk for stress-related illness, including depression, anxiety, obesity, diabetes, and other chronic and life-threatening illness.

Perhaps you’ve felt the impact of caring for others as burnout, compassion fatigue, or as a general decline in your own health and well-being.

I am now offering, on a limited basis to select clients, Care Partner Coaching.  This service is available via Skype or in person at my Ithaca, NY office.

This is for you if you are ready to:

  • Regain your balance, reclaim your peace, and move forward with mutually satisfying care partner relationships.
  • Learn to nurture yourself, manage anxiety, and improve relationships with loved ones and co-workers.
  • Cultivate your dormant creativity, connect with your Spirituality, and have the best possible physical and emotional health.

If you are ready to live fully and give to others from a full heart, please contact me at for information on how to apply to work with me in this exciting new program.
