Counseling can help ease the emotional difficulties a cancer diagnosis generates. The goal of counseling is self-exploration that creates a healing alliance between mind and body. Our culture often tells us we should "do it on our own," but clients find great benefit in working with a skilled therapist and/or a supportive group. They often experience greater emotional ease; find their resilience and personal strength growing; take on positive new behaviors; and move beyond previous limitations in thought or attitude and toward greater well-being.
Our therapists offer counseling services on a sliding scale and many accept insurance coverage
Clinical hypnosis is a mind-body approach to treating health issues that addresses anxiety, panic, phobias, physical pain, and stress-related issues; it can also help people prepare for surgery. Hypnosis places one in a highly relaxed state in which the conscious and subconscious aspects of mind are focused and receptive to therapeutic suggestion. The end result is a state of relaxation that helps to increase confidence, coping skills, and resiliency.
