Chronic Health Issues

I have spent the last 5 years as a social worker working in hospital settings. My expertise includes helping patients and families:

  • navigate the healthcare system
  • adjust to new diagnoses
  • cope with the impact of cancer
  • utilize mindfulness practices to deal with chronic pain

Target populations are those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and age-related diagnoses.

I work with individuals and families to successfully move through the stages of grief and come to terms with end-of-life issues.

Mindfulness based practices have shown credible progress in stress reduction and with those suffering from chronic pain.

Recent research has shown that individuals who employ the services of a therapist or non-medical health coach see a significant decrease in their overall healthcare spending. Therapy can help you in creating goals and plans to achieve better health outcomes.
