Cancer patients & Their Loved Ones

Working with cancer has been near and dear to my heart. It seems that most of us have been touched by cancer in one way or another, creating the need for better resources as to how to live with it and beyond it. How do we show up for our loved ones in a way that serves them best?  How do we practice self-care when we feel there is no room for it? Who do we tell and how do we talk about it? I will work with you to address the best practices for cancer patients, caregivers and their loved ones.

INDIVIDUALS

Learn to build a resiliency to life stressors, and begin to live your life in a way that better serves you and those you love.  Do not allow work, illness, or any other stressors get in the way of your relationships.  Personal therapy allows you the space to develop your preferred way of coping, so that you can better process whatever life throws your way.

COUPLES

Allow your relationship to be the space that nurtures communication, intimacy, and individual growth. Being in a relationship can be an optimal opportunity to heal old wounds, when guided in the right direction. Together we can rebuild a relationship that both you and your partner can thrive in.

ADOLESCENTS

If your adolescent is experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety, it is best to address them now due to the rapid pace of biological and psychological development. Adolescence is an optimal stage to address symptoms that might get in their way, because of the plasticity of the growing mind at this time of our lives.  Therapy provides an empowering experience that can support growth, while addressing the mounting expectations of parents, peers, and education between childhood and adulthood.
