“You don’t look sick!”
“I am tired too”
“Maybe you should just…. ”
"I wish I had that much freetime"
“This is all in your head!”
"At least it is not..."
Sadly these are phrases that those of us who deal with chronic illness often hear from our closest friends and families and sometimes even our doctors. Although they mean well, it is often just hurtful.
I have a personal commitment and passion for working with people who are struggling with chronic illness. Whether you need copings skills, help to process/accept/grieve a new diagnosis, to be supported in making lifestyle changes and adjustments, or are searching for a doctor that is a good fit, I am here to support you wherever you are at on your journey. I know that it is difficult and often lonely to live with an invisible illness and it is important to form a team whom you feel supported by along your path. I have taken extra courses on physical health, digestion, nutrition, and am familiar with many brain retraining programs (DNRS, Gupta, Fascia Release, etc).
