What makes this care unique?

 The difference is in how you’ll feel.

Experience has taught me that expertise and patience alongside the ability to connect with others are the most meaningful qualities a caregiver has.

Someone who genuinely listens, a rarity in life, that cares about what you are sharing when you are sharing it, in order to fully understand you so that you can get the treatment you deserve. Someone that takes the time to understand the specific details of your particular needs.

On a profound level, respect is fully listening when another speaks, caring to understand, and wondering how and why they see and experience the world as they do. This level of care is often missing from the people we seek it from, when we need it most.

Touch is healing. Informed touch is the purest form of medicine.
