Breast Cancer Support Services at Women's Therapy Center in Plainview

The Women's Therapy Center is excited to announce the opening of its Female Cancer Division designed to provide services for women with breast, uterine, vaginal, vulvar, endometrial, colon, and rectal cancer. 

 

“The launch of the Female Cancer division provides our patients, their family, and the community with a comprehensive, expert intervention for all phases of female cancer, from diagnosis to healing to life after cancer,” said Dr. Ditza Katz, co-founder of the Women’s Therapy Center.


Cancer services as the Center will offer individual counseling, support groups, vaginal rehabilitation, sexual therapy, incontinence management, medical massage, lymphedema and post surgical rehabilitation, image consulting and Esthetician services. In addition, we can offer services including: navigation of the hospital and medical system and obtaining financial resources in the community for prescription co-pays or medical bills or other costs related to cancer treatment.

 

Counseling and navigation services provided by our Cancer Specialist Jennifer Kolton, LCSW. Jennifer has been working with cancer patients since 2009. She is passionate about counseling women diagnosed with cancer.  Jennifer believes, “Every women diagnosed with cancer deserves a therapist who understands not only the emotional impact of diagnosis but has medical knowledge about this disease and its associated thoughts and feelings. Support is needed at diagnosis, through treatment and for many women months to a year after treatment has completed.”

 

A cancer diagnosis can bring on many different feelings and issues. Some of these include: anxiety, anger, depression, isolation, fear around death and dying, managing treatment side effects (hair loss, fatigue, and “chemo brain”), fertility and egg harvesting concerns, sexuality and body imaging, dating and intimacy, returning to work during treatment, talking to children and loved ones about cancer, and symptoms related to PTSD (post traumatic stress). Jennifer also specializes in counseling for women who are BRCA+, women diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy, and women diagnosed 45 and under.

 

The Women’s Therapy Center was founded in 1996 by Drs. Ditza Katz and Ross Lynn Tabisel.  The Center is dedicated to the genital, emotional, and sexual health of women.
