Big Lake, Minnesota therapist: Shelly Melroe, marriage and family therapist
Chronic Pain or Illness

Shelly Melroe

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
In trying to resolve your chronic pain or illness, you may have exhausted options for medical solutions. At Rhythm For Living, Shelly will work with you to understand how pain and illness can be manifestations of trauma held in the body from early life experiences (including pre-birth, birth, pre-verbal), physical injury, or invasive medical procedures). She uses neural interventions that enable trauma to be discharged from the body to restore the healthy autonomic functioning in your nervous system, reducing experiences of pain and medically unexplained illnesses.

Atlanta, Georgia therapist: Andrea Elkon, psychologist
Chronic Pain or Illness

Andrea Elkon

Psychologist, Ph.D.
Pain is so much more than a number on a Pain Scale. Your activity, your relationships, your thoughts, and your mood can all affect your experience of pain. Together we are going to examine all of the different things that make your pain worse. We will discover how you're daily activities and your beliefs around pain can fuel the cycle of pain. We will then develop tools to interrupt that cycle and do more with less pain. Please feel free to reach out to me to learn more about my approach to treating chronic pain.

Chicago, Illinois therapist: Michele Sitorus (Inner Peace Psychological Care), psychologist
Chronic Pain or Illness

Michele Sitorus (Inner Peace Psychological Care)

Psychologist, Psy.D.
A multidisciplinary approach is often used to address both the physical and psychological aspects of the condition. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) may be employed to help individuals manage pain-related distress, challenge unhelpful thoughts and beliefs about their condition, and develop effective coping strategies. Mindfulness-based interventions, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) or acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), can also be beneficial in promoting acceptance of pain and fostering greater psychological flexibility. Additionally, therapy may involve education about pain management techniques, relaxation training, and lifestyle modifications to improve overall quality of life despite the presence of chronic pain or illness.

Chicago, Illinois therapist: Dr. Adam Shafer, psychologist
Chronic Pain or Illness

Dr. Adam Shafer

Psychologist, Psy. D., M.A.
Managing chronic pain and illness exhausts many of the social and personal resources we have just to get through the day. Feelings of isolation and being alone in this struggle are insidious and can take away from our ability to remain connected to others and within ourselves. Whether it is not wanting to burden others with our struggle or feelings of hopelessness, people need to know (and feel) that they are valuable enough to continue to be cared for while also provided with space through encouragement that honors our autonomy.
