Centegra Physician Care has expanded to include general counseling services to further the continuum of care provided to the greater McHenry County area. Counseling services provide benefits to the patient and offer ways to cope and manage chronic conditions, help individuals understand the emotional components of a medical condition, as well as significant life stressors or conditions.
Kelly Bauman, licensed marriage and family therapist, is on staff at Centegra Physician Care and provides both individual and marriage counseling. Bauman recognizes the many dimensions that need to be considered in effectively caring for patients, including physical, intellectual, emotional, social and biological. ”Treating all dimensions of the person ensures an optimal outcome for the patient. Counseling can also assist the patient in recognizing the resources and strengths that they already possess to maintain resilience and remain in favorable health,” said Bauman.
Bauman has office hours at Centegra Physician Care-Crystal Lake, Centegra Physician Care-McHenry and Centegra Physician Care-Woodstock. To determine the right level of care needed, call (800) 765-9999.
