Chronic Illness Counseling Center
A place where individuals and families coping with a medical diagnosis can find support and resources.
We believe access to care is important, especially when faced with the uncertainty of a medical diagnosis.
We accept most major insurances including Medicare, Medicaid, Humana, Anthem, United Healthcare,
Passport Molina, Aetna, Aetna Better Health, and Wellcare
Meet with one of our skilled therapists individually to address specific needs and goals.
We recognize that family members are also affected by a medical diagnosis. Family counseling can include individual counseling for family members, education regarding diagnosis and resources, and sessions with family members together.
Stay tuned! As we assess needs we hope to offer groups in the near future.
