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.
I treat a wide variety of symptoms and illnesses, including but not limited to:
- Chronic pain
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- GI distress
- Autoimmune disorders
- Neurological disorders/Traumatic brain injury
- Women’s health issues
- Chronic fatigue
- Respiratory problems
We can help by focusing treatment on the stress of having physical conditions and making life-style changes to better manage and cope with the symptoms.
