I am a clinical psychologist with a specialty in health psychology and I can help you learn to deal more effectively with management of stress, chronic medical illness, neurologic disorders, pain and general health issues. My approach to cases is from a biopsychosocial perspective which considers and evaluates how biological, psychological and social factors impact on functioning and overall adjustment.

My treatment orientation is cognitive-behavioral (CBT) which assesses the underlying beliefs that may result in unhealthy patterns of thinking. Learning to restructure these thoughts will result in more realistic and healthy beliefs. Treatment is problem-focused and goal oriented and has research support for its effectiveness.

In addition to health psychology, I also see individuals who are dealing with depression, anxiety(including panic,obsessive-compulsive symptoms,PTSD), and I teach anger management skills and general coping skills to deal with relationship issues, parenting and life transitions.
