Welcome to the chronic illness therapy website. My name is David Younger. I'm a licensed psychologist specializing in working with people with chronic health conditions and helping couples with their relationships while raising children. I also have a chronic illness myself, which you can read more about in my Bio. I created this site as a resource for people living with chronic health conditions. You can read about specific issues that affect most people living with chronic illnesses like shame, social isolation, and helplessness. You can check out the blog for articles related to living with chronic illness. You can find out about therapy. Another great place to start is to check out the Living With Chronic Illness Handbook here. Finally, please feel free to reach out with any questions.

I know that your well-being does not have to depend solely on your physical condition. I know this because I have helped hundreds of people with different chronic health conditions and I know this from my own personal experience of living with a chronic illness. The most profound insight that I have gained in the past 15 years is that even though my physical body is a lot more limited today than it was 10-15 years ago, I am happier and more fulfilled today than I was 10-15 years ago.
