Are You Struggling With Physical Disability?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Physical Disability

Differently-abled people may face discrimination in society. This discrimination can cause distress, shame, anger, and other difficult emotional states that could lead to mental health concerns. Counselors can work with those differently-abled to learn more about their particular situation and assess how therapy can best help them individually.

People who have been through an injury and have lost some physical capabilities may need to grieve, making grief counseling an option. Others may also have trauma related to physical conditions.

Available Treatment Options

Therapists and counseling professionals recognize the implications of social stigma on a person and actively advocate sensitively for those with physical disabilities. Differently-abled people may benefit from cognitive or behavioral interventions, mindfulness techniques, or group therapy.
