Shelley Dodt, MSW

Cancer Coach
A Cottage for Counseling
508 SE Osceola Street
Stuart , FL 34990

Allow me to help you navigate the confusing maze of cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery. I work for YOU as a coach and advocate for YOUR well-being. I work independently of the hospital team. All services are protected by confidentiality.

When you hear the words, "You have cancer", you are suddenly forced to learn many things at the worst moment of your life. As a fellow survivor, oncology patient navigator and cancer coach, I can

help guide you through the journey. Your best outcome depends on the choices you make. Busy healthcare providers may care but do not have the time to provide individualized attention that you need.

I offer my services as a Mindful Cancer Coach. Why Mindful? Because Mindfulness teaches us to be aware of our mind and body in the right here and now.

Call me, Shelley Dodt, MSW, Registered Clinical Social Work Intern and Board Certified Patient Advocate at 772 631-3704
