Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can create overwhelming emotional distress, including anxiety, depression and worry. Our team of psychiatrists, psychologists and nurse practitioners have received specialty training in the field of Psycho-Oncology, and offer psychiatric consultation, brief therapy and emotional support to patients with cancer. If you have an existing mental health condition, we can work with you, your doctor and your mental health provider to coordinate medications and to provide extra support and care.
