Coping With Illness

Have you been diagnosed with an illness?
Are you finding it difficult to cope?
Do you feel that your life will never be the same?
Are you afraid of what this illness may do to your family and you?
Are you suffering from chronic pain?

Dealing with an illness can be overwhelming. When you are diagnosed with an illness, such as cancer or multiple sclerosis, you may feel that your world has been shattered. You are forced to change your lifestyle as with diabetes, and you may be stressed by all the changes imposed on you. Everything seems to have changed. Having a chronic illness can interfere with your independence, relationships, work, and family life. Your mortality becomes front and center in your life. The physical and mental toll of medical treatment, including medications, can be difficult to undergo. Chronic pain associated with your medical condition may be overwhelming and prevent you from engaging in once pleasurable activities. Feelings such as depression, anger, hopelessness, denial, and frustration may be difficult to deal with.

Get the support you need

Cheryl Turner, health-oriented therapist, has helped many people overcome negative feelings associated with a medical illness. If you would like help, she will work with you to increase insight into your emotional state, develop helpful coping skills, and make positive lifestyle changes so that you can live a healthy and fulfilling life. Cheryl incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness training, lifestyle guidance, hypnosis, and EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) into treatment. She will work closely with you to create a therapeutic relationship in which you feel supported and are given tools to help live a life defined by you and not by your illness.
