Cancer Counseling for Patients and Families Cancer Counseling for Patients and Families
As a survivor of Multiple Myeloma, Peter Rivkees truly understands the significance cancer has in your life. Intimately. And not just your life, but the lives of your family, friends, work colleagues, and relatives. When you are a person with cancer, you look at the world differently. Cancer can strain relationships inside and outside of your family. Grief and the potential for death are not the only items on the list of concerns. Cancer counseling can be an essential piece of your support plan.
We offer counseling to patients, as well as their loved ones, and do our best to make a difficult time manageable. We don’t just discuss feelings about cancer, but about
Depression and anxiety
Changes in employment
Feelings of guilt and loss of control
Anger and sadness
Physical changes in appearance
Sexual and psychological concerns
These are just some of the issues people with cancer may face, and that many of us do not feel comfortable sharing. But sharing helps.
