Coping with Health Challenges

Medical issues present both physical and emotional challenges. Physicians frequently refer patients for psychotherapy to aid in the individual’s adjustment to these challenges and to learn additional coping skills. Clients also commonly seek care for these issues on their own, as dealing with health issues is understandably stressful.

Extensive research supports the mind-body connection, and there is an established reciprocal interaction between physical and mental health. As such, counseling can be a vital component to fostering one’s overall health and wellbeing. To learn more, visit:
