Counseling for People with Chronic Disease

If you have a chronic disease, would like counseling, and live in or near Phoenix, Chandler or Scottsdale, Arizona, call 602.750.8051.

Problems Encountered by People with Chronic Diseases

  • Depression. Do you feel overwhelming sadness? Do you feel things will only get worse?
  • Grief. Are you grieving the loss of your health, mobility or ability to do the things you want?
  • Chronic Pain. Is chronic pain making life difficult for you?
  • Isolation. Is your chronic illness keeping you from getting out and interacting with people?
  • Dependence on Pain Medication. Are you using pain medications more than you would like?

Counseling Can Help People with Chronic Illness

Counseling can help you—

  • Grieve. Friends and family may not be comfortable with your expressions of grief. An objective, empathetic professional can help you process these feelings at your own pace.
  • Disease Management. Learn to identify patterns—what makes your symptoms worse and what makes your symptoms better. Learn to change your behavior to minimize your symptoms and maximize your enjoyment in life.
  • Learn That You Have Power. There are some things you cannot control, but there are many things you can. Learn to focus on the things you can change.
  • Pain Management. Learn alternatives that can lessen your dependence on pain medication. These may include meditation, visualization, yoga, spirituality and other alternative approaches appropriate to your situation.
  • Fulfillment. Develop activities that empower you to lead a fulfilling, satisfying life.

Counseling is not medical in nature and does not substitute for effective medical care, but counseling can help improve the quality of your life.

Benefits of Counseling

Counseling has the potential to improve your life in these ways—

  • More control of your life
  • More happiness
  • Less reliance on pain medications
  • Satisfying connections to other people
  • Fulfillment
