Your diagnosis turned your world upside down.

You trusted your body. You spent your time taking care of everyone – except perhaps yourself. Now life is filled with appointments and tests, and all you can see is just treatments and side effects. And as bad as that may be, the emotional toll is even worse. You are on the rollercoaster, and you wish you could get off it. Online counseling for cancer patients and their loved ones can help.

You try to keep it together.

You are in the club that nobody wants to be in. Your friends and family don’t know how to help. You don’t know how they could help, either. You feel alone, even though you know people care. Sadly, some of the people you thought you could count on seem to have disappeared. To make things even more confusing, you’re not sure how much you can share with the ones who remain. You would like to talk and share, but you don’t want to make them feel worse.

You want to feel safe again.

But how is that going to happen? You can’t turn back the clock to the old days, feeling blissfully naïve about your health. Hard as you try, though you want to believe that you can handle this, that things will work out, you just can’t help feeling afraid sometimes. Moreover, you are afraid that being afraid is only making things worse for you. The whole thing is just overwhelming, and you need some tools to help manage the ups and downs.

Online counseling for cancer patients can help.

Hi. I’m Sarah Murphy.

I am a licensed professional counselor and I specialize in working with people who have cancer diagnoses and other health issues. Many clients say that a cancer diagnosis is more of a mental health problem than a physical one. It makes sense. Cancer brings depression, anxiety, and even PTSD. Luckily, there are things you can do to help manage the emotional fallout of your diagnosis. I am here to help.
