Treatment of Individuals with Acute or Chronic Illness


I have a Certificate in Health Psychology and have expertise in working with clients with a wide range of health conditions and illnesses.
I help clients understand the mind-body connection: both how their illness may be causing anxiety or depression, and how emotional issues that they have may be contributing to their health condition.
I use a number of techniques in addition to talk therapy, such as Hypnosis, Guided Imagery, and Relaxation Training to help my clients regain feelings of harmony within their bodies and in their lives.
I have worked with individuals with Gastro-intestinal disorders, Chronic pain, Asthma, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, TMJ, Cancer, AIDS, Heart Disease, Stroke, Head Injury, Cystic Fibrosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, and many other illnesses.

Developing Acceptance, Coping & Hope
