Facilitator: Kerry Lang, LMHC

I am a mental health counselor, wellness coach and expressive art therapist who specializes in populations diagnosed with ME/CFS, Long Covid, Chronic Lyme disease, and similar illnesses. In addition to my personal experience of surviving and reaching remission from late stage neurological Lyme disease, I have over 7 years of experience working directly with patients dealing with complex medical issues. Before embarking on my private practice full time, I was the Mental Health Manager at a Harvard University and MGH affiliated hospital, where I provided individual psychotherapy to patients in addition to running support groups and wellness programs for those with Lyme disease and Long Covid. I currently sit on the boards of Ride Out Lyme and Invisible International, where I continue to advocate for the mental health of those with invisible health conditions. My approach is integrative and patient-centered, utilizing mind body medicine along with mindfulness, meditation, and the creative arts.
