As a cancer survivor myself, I enjoy working with cancer patients, to help improve quality-of-life while they go through treatment. We do this by addressing symptoms that may arise practically and imaginatively. Living with uncertainty, pain, and compromised physical ability takes a cumulative toll. I am here to help.
Creative activities like art-making are mindful practices, allowing patients and caregivers to stay in the moment, which by definition can free them from the stress that cancer brings. Caregivers experience stress, which can affect their own health and the patient’s outcome. A recent study showed coloring and open-studio art therapy benefits stressed caregivers of cancer patients.
