Dealing with a diagnosis of cancer, or any life-threatening disease, often brings an enormous amount of emotional pain and adjustment in dealing with the diagnosis, treatment, life style changes and losses associated with life-threatening disease. Even after treatment is complete, it may be difficult to remember how to live with the “new normal.” Depression, anxiety, overwhelm, grief, hopelessness, desperation, fear are very common feelings and experiences that often naturally accompany a difficult diagnosis. Through our work, we can create feelings of hope, control, balance, legacy and understanding. I specialize in working with those effected by cancer, and other diseases, and their family members and loved ones. You don’t have to live with the fear and pain…you CAN reclaim your life. I applaud you for your courage to reach out for help as you begin to move forward…I understand and am honored to assist you on your journey of healing.
