Navigating the intricacies of a chronic illness impacts the person with the illness as well as the caregiver and family. I work with couples, families, and individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, and communication due to illness. It may be difficult for others to understand how stressful, overwhelming, and frustrating it can be with day-to-day life from managing an illness, relationships, career, and household.
I’m a firm believer in a holistic ideology so I use systemic and culturally-sensitive approaches when working with clients. Recognizing how past generations have shaped who you are in the present can make a difference in understanding your overall being. How you deal with stress, how you interact with others, and how you feel about yourself, generally stems from past experiences and upbringing which can impact overall physical, emotional, and mental health.
In therapy, you’ll be able to understand how family of origin, generational patterns, and behavior/thoughts impact who you are and your communication style. You’ll also learn coping strategies to help manage taxing life events that come along with an illness. Schedule your free 15- min consultation today by email: DrOwoo@fkotherapyandconsultation.com.
