Counseling

We at the UMC Southwest Cancer Center know that promoting mental and emotional well-being is just as important as promoting physical. For this reason, all patients and their families have access to our integrated psychosocial support program. This allows patients and/or their families an opportunity to receive additional care from our team of psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers.

We can help you:

  • Cope with your cancer diagnosis and the many emotions you may be experiencing as a result of it
  • Access information to better understand your diagnosis
  • Provide you with a supportive community
  • Consider decisions about treatment options as you think about work, family, and other aspects of your life
  • Apply for community programs that offer some financial assistance

Through this program, we can also help you navigate through:

  • Communicating with your children, family, friends or co-workers
  • How cancer affects sex, intimacy, fertility, and how you feel
  • Living with cancer
  • Planning for your care with the use of advanced directives

Patients and/or their families can choose to receive this care in their clinic visit or during treatment, or they can schedule a separate visit. Counseling is available for individuals, couples, families and children.
