Finding out you or your loved one has cancer is life-changing. I will help you with the medical issues and the decisions that you will encounter. I will help calm your spirit, focus your mind, and guide you.

Supportive counseling includes deep listening, practical advice about cancer, treatments and side effects, emotional and spiritual concerns.

This support helps you gain insight and make difficult choices. You then have space to relax into decisions, and to respond in deeply meaningful ways.

As we go through this experience together, I will:
  • Help you think through, formulate, and organize questions to ask of your health care team members.
  • Offer direction, guidance, coaching, and walk with you as you consider the options available to you.
  • Assist you to find other healing resources that are right for you.
  • Be a healing presence when there are no clear answers.
  • Help you explore change, growth, insight and hope.
