Does your chronic illness leave you feeling exhausted and depleted? Do you feel left out when you can’t partake in common, daily activities? Do you often feel isolated, yet also feel the need to hide your condition from others?
A person’s well-being is reliant not just on their physical condition, but also on their mental health. While you may be struggling right now physically, please understand that you can thrive mentally and emotionally, despite your illness.
Life is Complex
A chronic illness is never something we plan for. But one day we get a diagnosis from our healthcare provider, and suddenly, our world, and the world of our loved ones, is turned upside down.
Things we were once able to do, we may no longer be able to. Plans we once made, we may no longer be able to keep. Our positive emotions are often replaced by negative ones like fear, stress, anger, shame and low self-worth.
While everyone experiences negative emotions from time to time, chronic negative emotions can make it that much harder for us to physically cope with our illness or find any joy in life.
Turning Pain into Strength
Therapy is a powerful way to face the challenges and subsequent negative emotions you are dealing with. By feeling our negative emotions, instead of stuffing them down inside of us, we can often turn our pain into unimaginable strength.
Having both both personal and professional experience with managing chronic illness has allowed me to specialize in helping people dealing with chronic illness navigate their inner world so they can not only survive their physical and mental health challenges but thrive.
Using practical solutions-focused therapy, I offer tangible results that can help you transform your life. Together, we will identify your feelings, attitudes and limiting beliefs surrounding your chronic illness, understand the origins of any damaging thought patterns, and create new positive mental and emotional habits.
