I am a licensed clinical health psychologist with extensive training in psycho-oncology and a longstanding clinical focus on providing psychological services in medical settings. It is my goal to work with patients and their families to help during this often difficult adjustment to the medical world and treatment. My interests are wide and each patient is different. I want to meet you exactly where you are at.
Cancer changes your life. You may feel distress that interferes with your ability to cope with its symptoms or its treatment. It can be very helpful to talk to someone like myself, who can help you to strengthen your own coping skills, manage challenges and changes associated with a cancer diagnosis and the uncertainty it brings; to learn how to communicate.
I work with individuals, couples, families, caregivers and anyone who is affected by medical illness and cancer at every stage of the disease, including cancer survivors and bereaved individuals. I provide face-to-face and tele-health appointments. Please send me a note or call to set up a free 15 minute consultation.
