We see clients who are:
• Living with cancer or have lived with cancer
• Supporting someone with a cancer diagnosis (including caregivers, family, and friends) and
• Those that have lost someone to cancer.
Have you struggled to find a therapist you connect with that understands how cancer has impacted your life?
Whether you or a person in your life has recently received a cancer diagnosis, started cancer treatment, finished cancer treatment, or lost a loved one to cancer, we can help.
Dealing with a diagnosis of cancer can be an emotional and frightening experience. Our clinician, Ashley Carrasco, LCSW, has both personal and professional experience with cancer. She has worked with people with all types of cancers in every stage including those that are experiencing bereavement due to cancer.
Are you completely overwhelmed by the decisions and procedures you must face?
We can help you calmly navigate through these issues by:
• Helping you assess your options;
• Identifying appropriate educational resources to help you understand complex medical information, and;
• Bolstering your coping skills.
Chances are you are feeling some of these emotions: shock, denial, anger, depression, hopelessness, isolation and/or loss of control. We can help you identify, examine, and cope with these feelings.
Have you recently undergone treatment? Are you experiencing long-term side effects?
We understand that, even if you are not currently in treatment, the side effects from chemotherapy can linger for months and sometimes years. Clients have expressed that when they don’t “look sick,” support from others may begin to decrease because they “look healthy.” We know that even when you are done with treatment, you still need social support.
Cancer can affect every aspect of your life—your physical health, mental health, your job, and relationships with your partner, friends, and family.
Through talk therapy, empathic support, behavioral and stress reduction interventions (relaxation exercises and individualized visualizations), we will help you regain control of your life and feel a renewed sense of energy and hope. Contact us today!
