My mom, Jerie, was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s in 2010 when I was just 25 years old. She lived with the disease for ten years before she passed away in April 2020. I have made it my mission to help other Alzheimer’s daughters on their journey by sharing my story and the many lessons I have learned along the way.
I started the Life, Love, and Alzheimer’s blog in 2014. I published my first book Learning to Weather the Storm: A Story of Life, Love, and Alzheimer’s in 2017 and my second book When Only Love Remains: Surviving My Mom’s Battle with Early Onset Alzheimer’s in 2021.
What I do:
I help women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s cope with the emotions of having a parent with Alzheimer’s disease by providing one-on-one mentoring sessions. (I may be willing to work with other adult children who do not fall into this category. Please check with me via email first.)
I will help you process what you are going through and your feelings about it. I will help you find ways to manage your guilt, grief, anger, and resentment. I will make you feel seen, heard, and validated as an Alzheimer’s daughter. I will provide you with a safe, judgment-free space to let it all out so that you can let go of the resentment you have for the other people in your life who may not understand what you are going through. I will teach you how to enjoy spending time with your parent again. I will help make this journey just a little bit easier for you and make you feel less alone. My goal is to save you from years of endless suffering by teaching you what I learned in over a decade of being an Alzheimer’s daughter.

How It Works:
Once you purchase a session, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to schedule our session via Calendly. Once you schedule our session, you will receive a second confirmation email with the link to our scheduled Zoom meeting. (You should receive both emails right away so please check your junk box if you do not see them in your inbox.)
Each session will be one hour. All sessions will be done via Zoom in the comfort of your own home. Please feel free to come as you are! There is no need to dress to impress! I will likely be in gym clothes or pajamas. I want you to be comfortable, like you are chatting with an old girlfriend.
You are able to cancel or reschedule a session via the Calendly link, if needed. If you do not see a date/time that works for you or if you would like to schedule a free 15-minute conversation to see if it’s a good fit before buying a session, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you ready to change your journey with Alzheimer’s? It’s time. Let me help you. Schedule a session today!
