Coping with Medical Illness

Do you find it stressful to deal with your physical symptoms or medical illness?  Do you suspect that stress makes these conditions worse.  Cognitive-behavioral therapy for chronic health issues teaches you how to break these cycles.  As a behavioral medicine or health psychologist, I understand the psycho-social and emotional toll chronic illness can have on an individual and family.  Therapy can help you adjust to the stress of having physical conditions and make life-style changes to better manage and cope with the symptoms.

I treat a wide variety of symptoms and illnesses, including but not limited to:

  • Chronic pain
  • Insomnia
  • Headache
  • Migraine
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • GI distress
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Neurological disorders/Traumatic brain injury
  • Women’s health issues
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Respiratory problems
  • TMJ
