As Professor & doctoral Program Director, I teach and publish on these topics, including problem-solving skills for persons with
, LongQT Syndrome, and ALS.
I am experienced and eager to help individuals and couples who want to make positive changes in their lives or cope with life stressors more effectively by use of cognitive-behavioral and problem-solving therapy and positive psychology. Therapy is intended to be goal-oriented and short-term. Couples are guided to regain intimate and personal connections they once had that may have been compromised by life stressors, infidelity, chronic or acute illness, parenting, age, sexual dysfunction, or simply growing apart. I aim to help people decrease distress, improve communication and problem solving, increase intimacy, and improve quality of life.
