Chronic Illness 


Sometimes it feels like your body is working against you. Every day is filled with a new unexpected challenge or unpredictable symptom. From waiting on lab results,  juggling doctors' visits, trying to explain your symptoms to your loved ones, and managing flare-ups. You're tired.


It can be hard to seek treatment when you feel this way. I value your courage in reaching out for support!


Chose a therapist who not only gets it, but who has lived it!


Mom and dad, it can be hard watching your teen struggle... I am here to help!


Dear teen:

Being a teen can be hard enough, without having to deal with a chronic illness or chronic pain! Often you may feel like you are missing out or not quite like your friends. Your chronic condition may even affect your academic and athletic activities.


I get it and I've been there! Together we can learn coping skills, relearn what to expect from your body, and partner with your school and family to get your needs met.
