Chronic Illness & Chronic Conditions Counselling

We understand that living with a chronic illness can be overwhelming, leaving you feeling isolated, depressed, and anxious. Our therapists understand the unique struggles that come with managing a chronic illness and will provide you with the therapeutic support and guidance that can help you navigate the emotional ups and downs that come with your condition.  If you have a chronic condition, our goal is to help you manage your condition and improve your quality of life.

We can also provide support if you are a caregiver.  If you provide palliative, hospice, in-home, or other very personal care, then you’ve seen first-hand how a chronic condition can affect multiple people directly or indirectly – including you.  It’s hard enough to perform the daily caregiving tasks, harder to perform them when your other duties and needs fall by the wayside, and even harder to maintain good spirits and a healthy outlook all the while.  We can help you find the right balance.

Guelph counsellor Kaylen Leonienco MSW, RSW has over six years of expertise in working with people who are coping with a wide range of chronic illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and many more. We believe that emotional and mental well-being is an integral part of overall health, and Kaylen can help you navigate the emotional complexities of living with a chronic illness.
