Support Services

At the Dubin Breast Center, we believe in addressing all your needs—body, mind, and spirit.

To help, we offer integrative and supportive services for all stages of your cancer journey—from diagnosis through survivorship. Our services are designed to help you cope with the physical and emotional side effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment,  and to help you take the best care of yourself beyond treatment. All of our integrative programs are evidence-based, and reflect state-of-the-art scientific protocols and clinical trials. This approach allows you to choose which services you want and to develop your own personalized care plan.

We have a staff of skilled, empathic integrative medicine professionals to provide these services, including psychologists, massage therapists, and nutritionists. All staff members are licensed and/or credentialed, and all have cancer-specific training and expertise.

Services Offered

We recognize that patients’ experiences of cancer and its treatment vary widely. Some people experience a myriad of physical symptoms while others find the experience highly stressful. To help, we tailor services to meet your individual needs and goals. If you are interested in a short-term intervention for stress management, massage, hypnosis, or relaxation techniques to strengthen your ability to cope with the emotional and physical effects of breast cancer and its treatment, we can help. We also offer longer-term interventions if you need assistance with  nutrition, smoking cessation and lifestyle changes, and traditional psychotherapy services to help with longer-term concerns, including family and role changes, body image, and depressed and anxious mood. In addition to one-on-one sessions with professionals, we also offer workshops and classes to teach you the skills you may need to improve your well-being.

Research and Training

We conduct innovative research to develop and test new interventions to help improve patients’ quality of life. We also train professional health care providers from all over the country in our evidence-based techniques.
