Chronic Illness & Medical

Family Therapy

Have you recently been diagnosed with an acute or chronic illness? Are you struggling with the life changes associated with a chronic disease? 

You might be attempting to cope with a newly diagnosed illness and are finding yourself grieving the loss of your old life and future goals. Perhaps this news has left you feeling overwhelmed with anxiety and depression, as you attempt to grasp what this diagnosis may mean for you and your life. You may have been dealing with this disease for years but are wanting to find a better way to cope with the emotional component of it and are eager to regain parts of your old self. You could be feeling alone and isolated, wanting to build up a new support system of people that care about you and want to spend more time with you. Or, you may find that you have accepted your medical condition but those around you have not and you are wanting to help them come closer to this acceptance. 

There is no right or wrong way to feel following the diagnosis of a new medical illness. Let us help you to manage any distress created by this change in your life and begin to make meaning behind the reasoning for this major transition. We have years of experience working with individuals and families undergoing: 
  • Cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Hospice care
  • High risk pregnancies
  • Treatment for major medical conditions, including diabetes, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis, amongst many others
  • Infertility


Intake - $175 for a 50 minute session

Because we realize that you may want the cost of sessions to apply to your insurance deductibles, we are happy to provide you with receipts that you may submit for reimbursement upon request.
