Therapist for Acoustic Neuroma Support in Los Angeles

Kate Boswell MFT, Psychotherapy& Counseling, Marina del Rey, Ca. 90292 (310) 658-3158

Taught by a Tumor

You may be wondering what my personal inspiration is, for wanting to help people with acoustic neuroma. I myself am an acoustic neuroma survivor. As a therapist and an acoustic neuroma survivor, I am uniquely qualified in my desire and ability to help you.

My acoustic neuroma experience was a difficult one. In fact, it was one of the biggest struggles I have ever had to face in my life. I also learned and grew a lot from it. It  turned out to be one of the most meaningful turning points in my life. You could say it was a gift in disguise, a cloud with a silver lining.

 That period of my life taught me so much about health and healing, and about all the emotional turmoil that health issues can cause. I read a lot and attended seminars, and participated in an association for acoustic neuroma patients. I heard countless stories from people who were emotionally stuggling because of physical challenges. I learned all I could about the mind body connection, and how they both affect each other. I learned how to be persistent in navigating the health care and insurance systems.

After putting this period of life behind me personally, I found myself drawn to wanting to work professionally with people who are feeling overwhelmed by a health concern. People who need more support than they can get through the informational and peer suport groups. People like you, who are reading this because they are looking for something more.  

If you are overwhelmed and shocked by an acoustic neuroma diagnosis, or struggling with an ongoing, chronic situation, I would be honored to help you.

Your journey is unique, and different from mine or anyone else's. Your choices will be personal, and not necessarily the choices I or anyone else would make. My role is to help you find your inner wisdom, to sort things out and figure out what to do.
