Cancer counseling helps cancer patients and their families work through their feelings and emotions regarding cancer and its treatment. It allows you and your loved ones to express their hopes and fears in healthy ways. Counseling provides a perspective from outside your daily life.
The types of professionals who provide cancer counseling include psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, therapists, and social workers. There are also patient-to-patient counseling programs that connect you with a peer who has survived cancer.
You can find cancer counseling programs through the Dignity Health – Cancer Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center. Here, we are dedicated to helping cancer patients and survivors find the emotional support they need. If you are interested in finding cancer counseling of any kind in Arizona, call 888.670.6341 (8222).

Cancer counseling provides support in different ways:
At Dignity Health, we offer different types of cancer counseling to meet different needs. To choose the type of counseling that is right for you, consider what level of counseling you want — individual, family, or group. Then, start by asking your cancer care team for recommendations. There may be a counselor on the team who is a good match. You can also find counselors through your primary care doctor, health insurer, employer, or online mental health sites. It’s important to have a good connection with your counselor. This means you may need to speak with several before choosing the one that’s right for you.
Dignity Health offers compassionate care to our cancer patients, including cancer counseling in Arizona.
