Announcement icon I am offering telehealth and "walk and talk" therapy to support you in moving beyond the trauma of a health or life changing crisis

About

Has a cancer diagnosis turned your life upside down? Is cancer all you think about? Hearing those three words “you have cancer” is a gut punch that is difficult to process. Thoughts of scans, testing, treatment, and side effects can become overwhelming. Some people become paralyzed by fear and struggle to experience joy. Even after treatment is over, quality of life can be compromised. Are you living with fear of recurrence? Do you have survivors’ guilt? Do you feel like you should be now living a life filled with gratitude, but instead feel lost? Are you wondering what is that "new normal" they talk about? Do you just feel stuck?
I specialize in grief and trauma support for cancer and chronic illness. When treatment ends, one might find themselves wondering “Now what?” I am here to say that post-traumatic stress symptoms are real, and it is ok to not feel like jumping up and down to celebrate "survivorship”. We can work together to find acceptance and peace with what has happened.
It is a courageous step to reach out for help. I am here for you. I want you to know that I have walked your walk and I get it. I will provide you with a safe space where we can work together to grow and achieve your goals. I would be honored to have the opportunity to guide and support you as you discover that joy is your birthright.
