About

Are you interested in how to use the connections between your mind, brain and body to improve your health, enrich your relationships, and increase your overall life? Working with these connections has been the focus of my 30 years of practice as a psychologist. Since every client's presenting concern in some way or another impacts upon their brain, their mind and their body - whether that involves depression, anxiety, pain, sleep, relationship challenges, or digestive concerns - my orientation to therapy is well positioned to help people get better now and to be better positioned to stay healthier in the future.
My specialty involves the integration of my training in health psychology, neuropsychology and clinical psychology. I bring that focus to my work with individual adults, couples and to health & wellness group-based programs to address: digestive disorders (e.g., IBS); chronic pain (e.g., migraine); and aging.
My practice emphasizes activation of client's innate healing resources. With a focused mind, people are capable of achieving much more than they recognize. Therefore, much of my work focuses on teaching and training clients to develop increased self-regulation abilities and practical skills to make positive changes in life.
