If you're looking for a therapist to help you cope with a medical problem, I have some unique professional training and personal experience that could help you. My 25-year medical background helps me understand and communicate the effects of your medical problem on your psychology and emotions. As a cancer survivor, I empathize with the often subtle but sometimes profound changes in how you view the world, your relationships and yourself. Whatever the therapies we use, I work to create a trusting relationship with you as the key to successful therapy.

I use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) as a core therapy because it has been shown to be effective with a wide range of problems. For chronic illness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is effective. For grief and loss experiences, Meaning-centered Therapy and Grief Task therapy are very helpful.

To help clients address their mental health problems outside of therapy, I research the local, expert, self-help book and internet resources that could help. We anticipate social problems related to your medical problem (like stigma or hurtful comments) that are likely to lead to emotional discomfort.
