Insurance

Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy

WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My clinical practice focuses on psychological treatments for patients with various medical and surgical issues, such as chronic pain, spine disease, traumatic injuries, amputations, obesity and obesity-related disorders, post-weight loss surgery weight regain, diabetes and other endocrine disorders, sexual dysfunction, neurological conditions, and gastrointestinal disease. Treatments can be tailored to address depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, relationship conflict, domestic violence, caregiver stress, substance use disorders, medical adherence issues, recovery from physical and sexual trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), tobacco use disorders, and bereavement. Interventions can include cognitive behavioral psychotherapy, behavioral pain management, stress management, biofeedback and relaxation training, behavioral weight loss, appetite awareness training, smoking cessation, exercise motivation, pre-surgical psychological screening for neuro-modulation surgeries (spinal cord stimulator, for example) and weight loss surgery. In my spare time, I enjoy walking my cocker spaniels at the trails around Duke, and knitting with alpaca yarn.
