About

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with specialized training in pediatric health psychology. In my therapy approach, I draw from evidence-based practice, while collaboratively tailoring therapy to individual needs and symptoms. The goal is always to improve daily functioning and each person's quality of life regardless of their disease status. I have extensive experience working with a variety of illnesses and symptoms (eg, chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, seizures, diabetes, obesity, epilepsy, cancer) by using a combination of cognitive behavioral approaches, mindfulness, and stress management strategies. I have a special interest in youth managing grief and loss.
Health psychology is a subspecialty unique to the needs of people diagnosed with medical illnesses. Services are designed for individuals who may or may not have co-occurring mental health symptoms. Treatment aims to improve overall coping and quality of life by addressing physical and psychological symptoms.
Clinicians at Oak Park Behavioral Medicine have received training and certification in medical hypnotherapy. Other providers offer bariatric surgery evaluation and preparation. Online mental health services are available.
