CHRONIC ILLNESS

As experts in holistic mental health, we help people with emotional and psychological challenges that arise in response to physical health problems.  We also teach people how to apply mental skills to manage the functioning of their nervous system which ultimately commands central for everything that happens in the body.  

The chronic health problems we treat include (but are not limited to):

  • Chronic Pain/Fibromyalgia

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • IBS

  • MS

  • Diabetes

  • Cancer

  • Cardio Vascular Disease/Hypertension

 

While all of these conditions are unique, there are some universal themes that invariably arise when faced with a change in your physical health status.  We provide individual psychological treatment to improve your ability to:

  • optimize coping by addressing psychological barriers to recovery (e.g., depression, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress symptoms)

  • manage pain and resume life roles and activities following an injury or physical illness (including return to work)

  • adjust effectively to loss and change associated with significant health challenges (e.g., loss of function, change in life roles)

  • cope with grief following loss of a loved one to chronic illness, or in anticipation of a significant loss (including dealing with one’s own mortality)

  • cope with challenges in significant relationships

  • restore a positive sense of self-esteem in spite of physical challenges and limitations

  • make healthy lifestyle changes to optimize management of physical conditions

  • obtain restorative sleep
