Coping with Physical Illness

When medical problems arise in a family, be it diabetes, cancer or heart problems, our therapists are ready to help. As physicians take care of your medical needs, therapists at Rago & Associates help you make plans for health and healing, make necessary changes in lifestyle and mind-set and deal with grieving and acceptance that accompanies personal losses related to health. We coordinate with other health-care providers as needed, and allow our clients to talk out and work through feelings that could turn into psychological symptoms if not dealt with effectively. We provide support and increased family communication, when needed, to our clients who are dealing with physical illness, including chronic pain, complex regional pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, heart disease, cancer, Crohn’s disease and other medical problems. One of our specialties is helping people manage and cope with diabetes.
