Gynecologic Cancer: Individual Support Program

We are available to talk with you individually by the phone about the emotional challenges of being diagnosed, of going through treatment, and adjusting to life after treatment. Our “professional mentors” are master’s level counselors and/or Licensed Professional Counselors trained as a part of our Individual Support Program.

 

This program offers four complimentary 50-minute phone meetings, designed to assist you through the challenges of diagnosis and treatment. The topics of the one to four sessions can vary and will be based on your need for support with gynecologic cancer. Topics can include but are not limited to: anxiety related to scan and blood test, illness-based depression, fear of recurrence, intimacy issues, treatment options, resources, relationships, and communication.

Please note: This is not meant to be a replacement for mental health psychotherapy. In those situations, we can provide a resource list with referrals for local therapists.
