For chronic illness , acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is effective.
If you're looking for a therapist to help you cope with a medical problem, I have some unique professional training and personal experience that could help you. My 25-year medical background helps me understand and communicate the effects of your medical problem on your psychology and emotions. As a cancer survivor, I empathize with the often subtle but sometimes profound changes in how you view the world, your relationships and yourself. Whatever the therapies we use, I work to create a trusting relationship with you as the key to successful therapy.

I specialize in treating adults 18 and older with chronic illness /pain, depression (with or without suicidal thoughts), substance use concerns, and/or disordered eating.
Do you miss the life you once had or are angry that the life that you planned was changed drastically due to chronic illness ? Do you get consistently flustered at not being able to do what you could last week due to a flare up of symptoms? Do you get frustrated because the people in your life assume you’re “better” when you’re experiencing a mild symptom day? Do you often find your inner voice saying mean, unhelpful things to you? Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then you and I may be a good therapeutic match.

I see teens 16+, young adults, and adults with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma/PTSD, Chronic Illness /pain, Bipolar, family issues, work stress, and family conflict.
Adversity is something faced by everyone, a part of everyday life that we don't necessarily plan to deal with but it happens. These adversities do not have to be just traumatic events. They way that we experience adversity, the developmental stage that we are in, the support system that we have at that particular moment- all of these things affect our ability to bounce back. They can be divorce, unkind words, work stress, bullying, stress at school, any variety of issues. This does not have to be the end of the story.

I specialize in holistic therapy for women struggling with anxiety, depression, grief & loss, and chronic illness & pain.
You want to feel whole, balanced, and at peace, but deep down you’re struggling with worry, overwhelm, guilt, and loneliness. Despite looking like you’ve got it together on the outside, you feel anxious and depressed on the inside. You’ve lost yourself in the midst of a diagnosis, loss, or building your career and/or family. You can’t shut your brain off. No matter how hard you try, you struggle with worry, rumination, guilt, and feelings of worthlessness. The negative self-talk leaves you feeling alone and afraid. This affects all aspects of your life, from your relationship with your husband and kids to your job and health.

Are you struggling with problems at the intersection of mental and physical health? Have you recently received a life-changing medical diagnosis, or are you finding it difficult to manage the emotional impact of physical health problems such as heart diseases, diabetes, chronic pain, insomnia, health-related symptoms of trauma, chronic diseases and conditions, or weight concerns? I understand how hard it can be to make healthy changes and stick with new plans, even when it is what you want most. You need help making sense of your new reality, figuring out how to function within it, and learning how to thrive there.

Some people experience more trauma than others. Success in therapy is feeling comfortable telling me what’s working for you—but also what isn’t working. It’s about what we can accomplish together to help you face hardship and emerge stronger and with greater purpose. That doesn’t mean your worst day is behind you. But I would like the opportunity to help you see the path that makes sense to you, and to provide you with tools that will help you daily. There is no handbook to make things easier, but there is a cooperation between us that forges strength out of your individuality and empowers you to see through the chaos into the calm.

What type of Cary mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Cary?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
