Chronic Pain therapists in Rockville, Maryland MD
Health issues interfering with your life plans? Does stress make you feel worse physically? Determined not to let your health problems run the show? I specialize in helping adults gain better control around their physical health and emotional wellbeing. Oftentimes, clients are frustrated about the division between mental health and physical health in medical settings, despite the fact that the mind-body connection is well documented. Clients wrestling with health issues may find it beneficial to seek out the services of a therapist for multiple reasons. Coping with a physical health condition can be exhausting, overwhelming, or even isolating. Others may not understand the everyday toll of chronic health issues. It may become more clear over time just how much changes in how you feel can worsen or improve your physical health You may notice that you just can’t make the types of changes that you know you need to make to feel better and are feeling stuck. Therapy adds another layer to the traditional healthcare approach by looking at the interplay between your beliefs, feelings, past experiences, current behaviors, habits, and bodily sensations. You may find yourself exploring patterns that have kept you from moving forward. Therapy can help you: -improve your day-to-day habits -create a more positive outlook -identify the values that matter most to you -build a life in alignment with your most important values -learn how to be your own advocate -gain the skills you need to deal with life’s challenges I provide therapy aimed at helping clients cope with and manage medical conditions, including: -Chronic Pain -High Blood Pressure -Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)/SIBO -Weight Management -Life after bariatric surgery Therapy that focuses on the mind-body connection integrates tools, such as mindfulness and relaxation strategies. Clients struggling with health concerns are encouraged to employ a team approach to care that may involve other providers, such as a primary care provider, physical therapist, acupuncturist or nutritionist. If a therapist is the missing piece of your wellness team, please reach out and schedule your brief consultation.
