Supportive Therapy for Chronic Health Issues
Chronic health issues can dramatically increase the amount of stress and anxiety in your life. You may have recently been told that you have a chronic health condition and feel powerless and overwhelmed. You may already be living with limitations brought on by failing health. You may be experiencing a loss of independence or a change in status in your family or at your job. You may feel guilty that you need to ask the people around you for support. If you are a caregiver, you also may be experiencing increased stress and anxiety.
It is important to know that you are not alone. I offer supportive therapy for individuals suffering from chronic health issues and the caregivers for people with health issues. These health issues might include: cancer, autoimmune disease, traumatic brain injuries, strokes or dementia.
If you are dealing with a chronic health condition, I will work with you to explore the resources available to help you. Through my therapeutic work and knowledge of community resources, I can present options of which you may not be aware. We will work together to develop appropriate coping mechanisms for your situation and will develop a realistic action plan for the future. If you are a caregiver, I will help you reduce the stress in your life and support you in taking care of your own needs as you attend to the needs of others.
