A cancer diagnosis can understandably challenge patients and families ability to cope with life and their disease. Patients, families, and loved ones have access to free counseling to assist with:

  • Adjusting to new diagnosis
  • Body image and self-esteem
  • Anxiety/fear of recurrence
  • Depression
  • Family/relationship issues
  • Grief and loss

The Patient and Family Counseling Department provides educational programs, support groups, and counseling to assist our patients and families in their journey through illness.  All of our counselors are state licensed and masters-prepared with many years experience in providing support and counseling to our patients and their families from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

To meet with a counselor while receiving outpatient treatment, please call 321.841.1055 to schedule a free consultation. If you are admitted to the hospital for treatment, please ask your nurse or physician for a referral to a counselor.
