Chronic Pain/Illness

Beyond the Doctor’s Office
Patients see the best results by using an integrated treatment approach to combat chronic pain and/or chronic illness. While physical therapy and pharmaceutical treatments can provide some relief, an often-overlooked partner is a behavioral health counselor or therapist. As an experienced therapist, I can provide a range of approaches and behavioral health components such as:

  • Individual counseling
  • Couples and family counseling
  • Career/Occupational counseling for patients needing to transition careers
  • Lifestyle skills
  • Stress Management
  • Alternative treatment consultation
  • Psycho-education about chronic pain
  • Understanding the mind-body connection
  • Preparation for surgical procedures
  • Support in finding social programs
  • Family and friend sessions to promote communication and understanding of chronic pain and it’s impact on the social network
