About this meeting
Early stage participants are independently managing their own lives, but may be experiencing subtle changes such as difficulty concentrating, anxiety and depression, and some physical symptoms. This is a new group for those looking to talk with other in similar life situations about how HD impacts their lives early in the disease. Those attending will be from across the country and membership and leaders will likely change from month to month. Video capability is required.

About the host
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been working in various fields of Social Work since 2007. I have a background working within medical settings, with at-risk teens in residential facility settings, and within Hospice and Home Health Care. I currently work as a Social Worker for the Huntington's Disease Society of America and also have a private practice licensed in Idaho. I have led a variety of groups of all ages and particularly have interest in grief and loss, adjustment, chronic disease, and coping support. I believe in the power of shared experience and helping others make connections that speak to the truth that you are not alone and there are others who can identify with similar feelings and experiences you have.

Very helpful. Pointed me towards many resources. Everyone in the group was very helpful and educating me in areas I was not sure of how to handle. I am very thankful for this support group.
