Flatirons Counseling Services understands that a cancer diagnosis is a distressing event that affects not only you, but also every member of your family. A recent cancer diagnosis may lead you and your family wondering and worried about the future. Fortunately, this diagnosis is not as formidable as it once was. With improved medical technologies and early detection capability, cancer has become viewed as more of a chronic illness.
Regardless, a cancer diagnosis does introduce a major change to one’s life. Flatirons Counseling Services can play a pivotal role in offering cancer support and helping you improve your quality of life, in addition to those of your family.

How Can Flatirons Counseling Services Help with Adult Cancer Counseling?
Flatirons Counseling Services stands ready to help you through this difficult period. While cancer counseling and therapy doesn’t affect the course of your cancer, it can have a tremendous impact on the amount of distress that cancer causes you and your family. You’ll learn problem-solving strategies that will improve decision-making, manage symptoms of depression, and assist you with the adjustment process of coping with cancer.
Your challenges may range from role changes in your family, emotional distress (depression, anxiety, anger), and relationship challenges (sexual dysfunction, communication, intimacy), all of which may contribute to additional psychological distress.
