Body Image Education and Support

Fingeret Psychology Services offers support and education to patients, healthcare professionals, and healthcare organizations to enhance the care of cancer survivors struggling with body image changes.

Regardless of whether body image changes are temporary or long-lasting they can lead to difficulties with social, behavioral, and emotional aspects of health.

Body image issues for cancer survivors include concerns related to disfigurement, hair loss, lymphedema, weight changes as well as functional changes to speech, swallowing, bowel and bladder, sexuality, loss of limb, and much more. 

Helping You Help Your Patients

Each clinical encounter offers opportunities for counseling, support, and education to help cancer survivors better manage and cope with body image changes. 

Please note: Fingeret Psychology Services currently does not provide individual therapy to cancer survivors. If you are looking for a therapist specializing in psychosocial care for cancer survivors, please feel free to contact me and I will provide resources and a local referral where possible.
