Coronavirus stresses individuals and relationships in a way that is entirely unfamiliar to all of us. It's challenging to be alone, and it's challenging to maintain relationships with the loved ones with whom you are sheltering. Medical professionals are experiencing unimaginable trauma every day. High stress levels depress immunity, so it is critically important for you to have ways to manage the stress. I am an experienced therapist. I can provide a safe emotional space to express your feelings. I can listen. I can help you develop tools and skills for managing feelings that this unthinkable situation elicits.

The clients I work best with are here because they recognize something does not work for them-they have developed anxiety and/or depression and may struggle with life changes, stress or relationship issues. I enjoy deeper work that may raise questions such as: Who am I? How do I define myself in my environment? Why do I feel lost? What is my greatest desire? How do I find joy in my life? I also like to work with clients to tame their anxiety and reduce their depression. I prefer to work with those over 18.

Waitlist for new clients
With the demands of everyday life, our own emotional demands can often go unmet- causing pain, discomfort, bitterness, and frustration. Taking a step back from the responsibilities pulling us in all directions to closely examine our emotions and relationships can feel impossible, uncomfortable, or even intolerable. But if you're interested in pursuing therapy, you may have already realized the discomfort of things remaining "stuck" is worth trading for the discomfort that comes with growth. If you want to make changes and don't know where to start, talking it through with an empathic therapist can help.

If we ignore and keep living without doing anything about it, it will keep piling up and starts affecting our overall well-being.

Life is filled with loss, yet we live in a grief-illiterate culture that wants to bypass pain at all costs, leaving us unprepared to navigate both death and non-death losses when they come. When looked at through the lens of loss, many emotional states that plague us – anxiety, depression, trauma – can be tied to unresolved grief in our lives. Every loss must be grieved and in finding a path through the pain, healing can begin.

Chronic Illness Therapists

How does therapy for chronic illness work?

Many people living with a chronic illness may feel they cannot speak honestly about their experience out of embarrassment or fear of being a burden, or because those close to them do not understand, for example, that they may “look good” even if they do not feel good. Therapy sessions are an opportunity to speak openly with someone who knows their symptoms are not in their head and who can offer practical, proven suggestions for managing feelings of grief, shame, or fatigue, such as techniques to challenge unhelpful thoughts about symptoms and develop new ways to respond to them, such as distraction or calming breathing practices.

Can therapy help with physical symptoms of chronic illness?

Yes, especially if an individual with chronic illness has developed depression. People with depression are less likely to maintain their health treatment regimens or to take positive steps to manage physical symptoms when they arise, thereby potentially complicating their medical prognosis. Treatment of depression, through talk therapy, medication, or both, will often improve one’s physical state as it eases the emotional burden of illness.

What are the most effective treatment options for chronic illness?

No one living with a chronic illness, or their loved ones, should see depression as an unavoidable result of their condition. Instead, they should actively seek treatment. Research shows that people with depression are less likely to devote the required time and effort to maintaining or monitoring their health, and so therapy to limit the risk of depression can be vital for physical health as well. Therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based stress reduction have been found to help individuals reduce stress and anxiety.

How long does therapy for chronic illness take?

There is no set timeline for therapy for people living with chronic illnesses, but many will see a therapist for a number of weeks or months, typically spanning at least 12 weekly sessions. Some people feel that they experience progress faster than others but even some who quickly feel improvement may continue with sessions for months or years. Some people may benefit from maintenance therapy if their symptoms change or they experience a decline in physical health. Others find that the skills learned in short-term therapy can be used on an ongoing basis, even after therapy has concluded.
