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 working with people experiencing 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, 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.

If you are feeling powerless and fearful due to life changing circumstances such as yourself or a loved one being diagnosed with cancer or other chronic illnesses, I can help. What you are feeling is normal, and I can help you find peace and acceptance with what is happening. I am unable to change the medical condition, but I can help you find a way to live well despite it.
