About

I have over 14 years of experience providing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based behavioral and mindfulness treatments to address stress and behavioral health conditions. My specific expertise is in treating of adults with depression, anxiety (health-related anxiety, panic disorder, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias), and chronic pain. I also use a behavioral approach to address weight loss, managing chronic disease, and improving coping skills, health, and wellness. My treatment approach is collaborative, short-term, goal-oriented, and is tailored to meet each client's needs.
I am Director of Pain Psychology in the VA Healthcare System and I have faculty appointments in the Department of Psychiatry at the Boston University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School (and formerly Yale School of Medicine). My practice focuses on the use of psychotherapies that have scientific support.
I teach psychology and psychiatry trainees about CBT and the role of behavioral health in medicine. I give national lectures focused on using CBT to improve medical and mental health conditions. I strive to help individuals make behavioral and lifestyle changes to improve physical and emotional health and functioning.
