I provide assessment and treatment of physical and mental health problems. I have forensic expertise and perform many types of specialized testing. I treat patients with complex challenges such as chronic pain, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and work injuries. My specialties include treatment of injury, opioid dependence, trauma, panic attacks, anxiety, and depression. I am trained in advanced psychological testing techniques. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, and other treatments that are supported by research. I help patients become aware of harmful patterns, and use mind body therapies including biofeedback and meditation.
As a health and forensic psychologist, I provide presurgical screenings for gastric sleeve, spinal cord stimulator, spine surgery, DBS, and other procedures. I conduct addiction and opioid risk assessments. I offer forensic & medical evaluations according to best practices. Our practice is skilled at interacting with legal teams and workers compensation.
Specialized services that I provide include treating law enforcement and veterans, testing for memory impairment, dementia and TBI, conducting fit for duty evaluations, and providing independent medical opinions. I perform adoption, custodial evaluations of parents, court ordered, and immigration evaluations.
