Map Your Care: Illness & Grief Counseling, LLC
Map Your Care: Illness & Grief Counseling offers a full range of counseling services to help you soften your fears and live your best life. From the first rumbling of thoughts about your health through the end of your life and beyond, I can help you map out what’s important to you as you move through life and help provide support to your family along the way.
Through my private practice, I provide licensed counseling services to individuals and families. I offer in-home counseling in the Denver Metro/Front Range for those who are have mobility challenges and offer virtual counseling for Colorado residents. I focus on illness, caregiving, end of life and grief and pull from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, nature therapy and mindfulness-based interventions. Drawing on 10 years of experience as a clinical social worker in oncology, hospice, palliative care and in a care facility setting, I can help you understand your options as you navigate an illness or end of life in the context of your individual needs and resources.
