Individual Support 

We are available to talk by phone with you about the emotional challenges of being diagnosed with gynecologic cancer, of going through treatment and adjusting to life after treatment. Contact us to set up a time to connect or fill out our Consent to Contact form and we will follow up with you. Our Individual Support Program (ISP) staff are master’s level counselors with mental health training. The program offers four complementary appointments by phone or video conferencing, designed to assist you through the difficult experiences that are commonly associate with a cancer diagnosis and treatment. The focus of these sessions can vary and will be based on your need for support with gynecologic cancer. Topics can include but are not limited to test anxiety, illness-based sadness and grief, fear of reoccurrence, intimacy issues, treatment issues, resources, relationships, and communication.

Please note: This service is not meant to be a replacement for mental health psychotherapy. If more professional support is needed, we can provide a resource list to help you connect with local therapists and national support programs that have expertise with individuals who have serious health conditions. Affordable counseling options and scholarships may be available. 

 

The purpose of this program is to provide emotional assistance in the face of the stress and distress you may be experiencing related to your cancer diagnosis and treatment.

To get started, contact our CGCA Support Services Team to arrange a meeting time or ask questions. We look forward to connecting with you.
