About My Clients
In the face of a life-altering medical diagnosis, our most fundamental assumptions about health, security, and control are challenged in an instant. Ideas about what the future holds are suddenly called into question, forcing a rushed reprioritization of every aspect of life. A life once familiar and routine becomes immediately unrecognizable through the lens of uncertainty. Isolation creeps in as you come to realize that those closest to you cannot begin to understand what you are experiencing.
How I Can Help You
Serious medical illness can weave a complex web, bringing with it a set of obstacles for which I am personally familiar. This is an experience that is difficult to understand unless you have been through it—and having had ovarian cancer, surgeries, and chemotherapy myself, I am particularly sensitive to the constellation of emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial challenges associated with life-altering diagnoses. While every illness prompts a unique journey from person to person, my own experience with cancer offers clients a depth of connection and empathy that comes from walking a similar path. With understanding, compassion, and respect, we will work through every part of this process together, from the day of diagnosis all the way through the end of treatment and whatever comes next.
