Support Services: Counseling and Groups
Designed to address the emotional distress associated with a cancer diagnosis.
From initial diagnosis through treatment and beyond, the free counseling services provided at the Center help normalize the emotions and issues raised by a cancer diagnosis. The professional clinical staff, comprised of psychologists, counselors and social workers, provides people diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones with coping strategies and practical suggestions to help them better function and improve their overall quality of life.
Counseling is available for:
