How his diagnosis changed my life…
When my husband was diagnosed with cancer, our lives flipped upside down. In our 40s, working and parenting, cancer was the last thing we expected. He was scared and I was heartbroken.
I wanted to be there for him and our family every step of the way.
Mother, wife, employee… and now caregiver. Overnight I took on one of the hardest roles of my life.
Caregiving is one of the toughest jobs out there. Along with it comes sadness, fear, frustration, exhaustion, and guilt.
My husband was sick and facing huge physical and emotional challenges, and my heart ached for him.
At the same time I was overwhelmed and exhausted trying to be strong for everyone and hold it all together. I remember thinking, I can’t keep doing this…
You can get your strength back!
This is where I come in.
You are stronger than you think and I will show you how that is true.
- I will help you uncover what is keeping you stuck so we can start building your mental resiliency.
- I will teach you simple tools to build your capacity to handle all the emotions coming at you so they don’t exhaust you.
- I will help you re-tool your time management, decision making and self-care skills so you have the energy and confidence to handle what ever the future holds.
You may not be able to change your spouse’s diagnosis, but you can get back in control of your life.
This is how I work with clients
You don’t need advice, you need to know how to make good decisions for yourself and your family.
You want to feel back in control again, and recognize that there is more to it than just having a “good support network.”
I know exactly how it feels and I’ve been there!
More than just survive, deep down you want to live and thrive again, no matter what the future holds.
If that rings true, then let’s work together!
I work with you one and one each week to identify your specific challenges so we can address them and then build up your resiliency skills.
If you don’t want to feel miserable and worried all the time, know that you don’t HAVE to. You can feel back in control of your life, no matter what happens with your partner.
