Autoimmune and Chronic Illness Counseling

An autoimmune disease is when one’s own body attacks itself due to a faulty immune system. There are various different types of autoimmune diseases. For many autoimmune diseases there are no cures and the treatments are challenging. In other words, while there are treatments available, managing the disease is no small feat. However, for all autoimmune diseases, being able to manage stress is known to improve quality of life, both physical and mental.
