The Integrative Counseling Office of
Catherine Daniels-Landeros, MS, LMFT
Many of us have been touched by cancer, either personally or through a loved one's journey. Receiving a diagnosis of cancer, pursuing treatment, and afterward living with the diagnosis while trying to return to a "normal" life can take an emotional toll on the individual and family members. Feelings can alternate between vulnerability, uncertainty, fear, anger, helplessness, dread and fatigue. Depression and anxiety are natural reactions among those diagnosed, as well as family members & loved ones, who often double as caregivers.
The need for individual, and in some cases, family support is often paramount, as everyone adjusts to the new reality a cancer diagnosis can bring. Per the individual and family's needs, we work together to move toward a new understanding of life and if desired, the threshold of death as it presents itself today.
I offer individual and family psychotherapy, mindfulness and relaxation exercises, guided imagery, creative expression and spiritual support as part of an integrative health approach that supports well-being by enhancing the body's natural healing systems and relieving stress that can compromise the immune system. Together we decide where to begin and goals to pursue in the client's journey in whatever form that may take.
