About Me

Summary

I am a clinical psychologist with a subspecialization in health psychology.

About Me

I am a psychologist with a wide-ranging clinical background. I treat adults and seniors having psychological/emotional issues and specialize in treating individuals with medical and/or traumatizing conditions. But I wasn’t always a psychologist. I began my career as a pediatric nurse, specializing in chronic illness. You are neither your body nor your mind. You are a combination of both, in the context of a larger world that affects you. I will work with you as you learn the skills to synchronize your mind and your body in order to grow and meet life’s challenges.

Practice Philosophy

My Approach to Therapy

I work with people as a teacher rather than as a “fixer”. We will focus on your strengths, using cognitive behavioral strategies, often including various relaxation/meditative techniques and, always, humor.
