Making Wellness Solutions Accessible for Family Caregivers
Stable Ground Counseling LLC is now offering wellness counseling specifically designed for caregivers—such as parents, caretakers of elderly or disabled family members—and healthcare professionals.
The Norwalk-based counseling service provides highly individualized, home-based counseling services, taking into account that most caregivers often don’t have the time to visit a counselor or coach at their office location. Counseling can be provided on a flexible schedule throughout Fairfield County.
Stable Ground Counseling LLC’s manager, Sabrina Donalies-Schell, MHC, is a mental health counselor as well as a certified life coach and certified medical technician. “Caregivers often focus their entire energy on their loved ones, which is incredible and deserves so much respect. Unfortunately, this job is often completely underestimated and caregivers exhaust their resources without looking after their own wellbeing,” she says. “We empower them with self-care, mindfulness and resilience tools, as well as skill coaching, to help the entire family system.”
In addition to the home-based counseling services, Stable Ground Counseling LLC provides equine assisted learning workshops to complement their clients’ personal development. Clients work individually or in small groups to develop problem-solving approaches. Sessions do not involve riding, and no previous horse experience needed.
