CLINICAL APPRAOCH

Health-related problems, whether acute or chronic, can tax coping strategies that have otherwise been sustaining.  The ripple effect of challenges stemming from a medical illness can go beyond changes of physical function.  Issues of vulnerability and mortality, shifts in relationship dynamic, and topics of loss and aging are related consequences.  Thes can be overwhelming and lead to symptoms of anxiety and depression.  Partners, spouses, family members, and loved ones can also be affected and struggle with caregiver issues. 



Medical psychotherapy can provide a new perspective to understand and cope with life changes resulting from illness, as well as potential treatment side effects.  Using a variety of modalities, psychotherapy can assist in coming to terms with the widespread impact of health problems, in addition to navigating lifestyle changes and enhancing strategies of self-care and well being.
