Psychosocial Oncology

You may find it helpful to seek emotional and psychological support.

Seeking Support

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, you may find it helpful to seek emotional and psychological support. You can rely on our experienced, compassionate psychotherapists at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute to help relieve worry and stress, which goes a long way to promoting healing and recovery.

Our therapists are available for consultations with individuals, couples and families in the inpatient and outpatient setting. You or your loved one do not have to wait until you are referred by your oncologist. You may contact us at any time before, during, or after treatment. Upon referral, our team will contact you to learn about your needs and to connect you with appropriate services. Psychosocial Oncology counseling services are provided both in-person and by telehealth. We can provide telehealth counseling services in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey. Limited oncology-focused psychiatry appointments are available by telehealth to Pennsylvania and Delaware residents. Contact us today to learn more.
