Annette holds a Ph.D. in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Social Work. She has been a licensed psychotherapist for more than 25 years and is a Diplomat of the American Psychotherapy Association. In 2010 she was named a Fellow in Thanatology, Grief and Bereavement and in 2020 she completed an Advanced Practice Certificate from California State University Shiley Institute for Palliative Care.
Her on-going commitment to caregiver education is changing the way we understand and care for the aging and those facing life limiting illness. Her informed care plans and caregiver placement services allow families to navigate long term care needs in a way that honors the natural arc of aging while remaining in the home environment.
I have taken several trainings from Annette. Her courses on caring for the aging and those at the end of life are informative and on point with out being depressing. Quite the opposite, her information and ability to convey a tough topic is soothing, enlightening and hopeful. We will all face this issue one day and I find Annette to be a very good teacher who, in my opinion wants, to alleviate the fear we have regarding this topic and she does it well.”
