Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Pasadena, CA
Are you a sibling, parent, caregiver, or partner of a person with a chronic illness such as diabetes, Alzheimers, or Cancer? Even if you aren't the family member living with the chronic illness, life can be extremely challenging and exhausting. As a caregiver, you can also experience burnout. Therapy can be a safe space for you to process your emotions surrounding your role and identify ways to help you both heal and care for yourself.
Have you lost joy in your life? Are you having difficulty getting up in the morning or facing yet another doctor’s appointment or call with your insurance company? Living with a chronic illness can lead to so many emotions. Therapy is a place to explore your pain and grief as well as manage your stress. Together, we will develop the emotional skills to deal with your chronic illness, problem solve difficult issues, and explore how your thoughts and emotions affect you and your relationships.
Do you hear yourself think, “I’m just not good enough?” Often, our thoughts can dictate how we feel and how we interact with ourselves and in our relationships. If you find yourself drowning in a sea of negative self-thoughts and unhealthy patterns, now is the time to reach out for help! Together, we can identify those intrusive thoughts and replace them with truths that will lead you to a place of hope and healing.
