Mill Valley, California, United States
At present I am volunteering with National Alliance for Mentally Ill (wrote article on resiliency for their newsletter) and Jewish Family Children's Services (JFCS) as I prepare to return to work after several years absence. I just completed training in Palliative and End-of Life care with JFCS. I have two people who I visit as a Senior Companion. I receive monthly training and supervision from JFCS. I am starting a mentoring and counseling practice through phone consults and individual meetings. I hope to find part-time work in palliative care settings and to offer support groups for those who are caregivers or experiencing the transitions (loss) and challenges of aging.
