Psychology & Psychiatry Consultation Service

The consult services sees patients at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) with distress or other circumstances that complicate cancer care or reduce health and quality of cancer survival. Specialized medication, coping strategies, counseling, imagery, hypnosis, and behavioral techniques are some of the many options available for managing stress, depression, grief, anxiety, phobias, sleeping, fatigue, pain, nausea, eating, or sexual problems that are common during and after treatment.

Survivorship Program Services

The Survivorship Program offers clinical services at the SCCA and Seattle Children’s. Adults can be seen at the SCCA through the survivorship clinic or at disease-specific survivor programs focused on breast, prostate, or transplantation programs. The survivorship clinic sees cancer survivors who have completed active treatment and are age 21 or older regardless of site of disease or medical center where their cancer was treated. Sites for the SCCA oncology network also provide clinical services for cancer survivors.
