Chronic Illness and Disability Counseling

Being diagnosed with a chronic illness or having a disability can change your life and the lives of those around you.  Illness can be physical, cognitive, emotional, or all of the above.  How you feel on any given day is unpredictable, making it difficult to plan your day, much less life into the future.  Depending on the illness, some individuals struggle with pain each day, and others slowly lose functioning over time.  Many struggle with their families understanding what exactly they are experiencing and many become isolated, feeling alone and without emotional, physical, or financial support.  Living with a chronic illness does not mean individuals must stop living, but instead they must adapt the way they live.  They may be able to still do the things they love, but in a different way.  Seeing a counselor can help make these useful changes in your life and teach you useful coping strategies for managing symptoms of grief and loss, pain, and frustration.  Counseling should by no means replace medical care you are receiving for your chronic illness, but instead be a supplement to helping you manage your illness and concerns.

Many resources and organizations exist to help individuals with a variety of conditions.  It may be beneficial to connect with an organization that provides other services and resources for individuals with your illness.  I am happy to connect you with these additional resources once we begin our work together.
