Many life changes, emotions, & challenges come with a diagnosis. Given that it often takes 2 years to get a diagnosis, you've likely been struggling with this for awhile. That's true if it's your diagnosis or the diagnosis of someone you love. I specialize in working with people with chronic illness (cancer, autoimmune illnesses, etc.), caregivers (for children, spouses, elderly parents), older adults, & those with cognitive challenges (dementia, etc.). I’ve worked with people who are dying & their grieving loved ones. I provide online therapy in California, Texas, & Mississippi. Please see below for insurances I take by state.
I help clients develop coping skills to support them through times of stress. They increase knowledge about their situation, compassion for themselves and others, become more flexible in their thinking, and improve self care. They gain confidence in themselves while decreasing uncomfortable feelings such as shame, guilt, sadness, and worry.
The most important factor for successful therapy is developing a supportive relationship between client and therapist. This relationship we’ll form is the foundation upon which positive changes occur. I think you’ll find my approach to be caring, genuine, and focused on your needs and goals. I’d love to speak with you about how I can help and support you.
