"Here for you and your family to support and guide you through this unique journey"
Whether you are the parent of a child with Type 1 Diabetes, or a child or teen with Type 1 Diabetes, you are on a journey. Not one you picked or planned, or ever saw coming so you could prepare. It just one day appeared in your life: the diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes. Your old life changed and your new journey began instantly. As a parent of a child with Type 1 Diabetes, I share in this journey and know the ongoing unique challenges and issues it brings not only to the child with Type 1 Diabetes, but to the parents/guardians and siblings as well. As a psychologist, I am constantly struck by the human spirit to not only survive, but to adjust to hardships, seek support and guidance, and ultimately thrive. Wherever you are on your journey with Type 1 Diabetes, you are not alone. The Type 1 Diabetes Center for Support offers individual, parent and group consultation, as well as ongoing classes and workshops. Please visit the following pages to learn more.
