"Many chronic conditions respond to behavioral changes and nearly all require some attention to lifestyle. Behavioral medicine offers a perspective and a set of approaches to help you cope and adapt.
It is very common to have a wide range of thoughts and feelings after being diagnosed with a chronic medical condition. Sometimes these reactions interfere with making changes we know are necessary. We can work together to deal with your reactions, clarify your personal health objectives. Then we can plan and implement strategies and techniques necessary to protect your health, minimize further decline or begin recovering.
