Specializing in counseling for individuals on the breast cancer journey

At Hope-La, we know that receiving a breast cancer diagnosis is overwhelming and comes with unique emotional challenges that can often be overshadowed by the urgency of physical treatment.  You should know that maintaining psychological well-being during this time is just as important and can result in better health outcomes.  We are here to provide personalized counseling services to help you and your family cope with the emotional trauma, psychological effects, and lifestyle challenges of this experience. Our commitment is to empower you to regain control of your life and inspire hope in the fight towards recovery.

What we offer

Dr. Andrea L. Darden, DSW, LISW-CP

Founder, Chief Therapist

As a breast cancer thriver, my approach to providing services is deeply informed by my personal experience and 20 years of professional practice and training. I understand the devastation, disappointment, and struggle with the negative thoughts and emotions that accompany this diagnosis including those that can challenge your faith.  But I also understand and know the path to recovery, hope, resilience, and victory. It is, by no means, an easy path, but it is one that you and your loved one also have the strength to overcome.

At Hope-La, we strive to provide research-based interventions that have shown to be effective in addressing the emotional trauma of this diagnosis. We provide unwavering support from a survivor’s perspective to other survivors, caregivers, and those currently battling this disease. Therapy services are designed to address the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual struggles of the journey with a commitment to empowering individuals to regain control of their lives and find hope in the face of adversity. Let's take this journey together. Take the first step and schedule a free consultation with me.
