Therapy for Medical Conditions

I provide specialized psychotherapy for individuals and family members experiencing emotional stress and concern related to certain medical conditions. I have over five years of experience working in hospitals and hospice providing case management and psychotherapy services for the following categories of conditions:

  • Cardiology – Atrial Fibrillation (A Fib)
  • Neurology – Stroke, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy
  • Endocrinology – Diabetes, Hypo/Hyperthyroidism
  • End of Life (hospice/palliative) Care

Every person experiences the effects of a given medical condition differently. Because of this, time is spent discussing life before the diagnosis as well as focusing on coping skills, stress management, and issues that arise now and may arise in the future.

When needed, I collaborate with members of the medical team with a signed release of information form.
