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.
