Navigating cancer is not easy, and is “life changing” on many levels. I can teach you how to move through the continual challenges of cancer with emotional wellbeing.
Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with cancer, getting treatment, are post treatment, dealing with metastasis, recurrence, or grief from a terminal diagnosis; I can help you cope with roller coaster emotions that go with each of these chapters in your life. If you are a family member and caregiver for your loved one with cancer, you too are going through many roller coaster emotions.
Through years of having a psychotherapy practice dedicated exclusively to cancer patients and their caregivers, I’ve developed simple and effective tools for getting you through scared, overwhelming, sad times.
