Support for People with Oral, Head and Neck Cancer

November 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

3rd Mondays  6pm – 7pm
This support group is for cancer patients/survivors and their caregivers.  Free parking! Refreshments served.

 

Facilitated by Lee James, MS, LPC and Dr. Sharon Taylor
Lee has 10 years experience in community mental health, providing evidence based therapy and treatments via team modalities such as Assertive Community Treatment (ACTT) and Community Support (CST) to address the needs of the dually diagnosed in the community.  Lee specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT), and is trained in Illness Management & Recovery (IMR), a model he seeks to implement in support groups here at Cornucopia.  Lee‘s first graduate school internship in the UNC Dept. of Rehabilitation Psychology & Counseling was in cancer support at UNC Lineberger Cancer Center.

Sharon is a medical oncologist who recently retired from Duke University and a two time, 18 year survivor of head and neck cancer.  She has a strong interest in using evidence-based complementary therapies along with conventional care in treating people with cancer and completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine with Dr. Andrew Weil.  Sharon is also trained in medical hypnosis and acupuncture.  She looks forward to working with Lee James, MS, LPC, in continuing to support patients and caregivers going through cancer treatment and survivorship.

In partnership with SPOHNC
