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.

Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a clinical psychologist who uses collaborative, solution-oriented approaches (including cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based therapies) to help patients understand and to resolve the challenges they face. I have a particular focus in helping patients with chronic illness and their family members cope with the symptoms and psychological demands of their disease. I can assist individuals and couples with a number of different concerns, such as psychological distress (depression, anxiety), pain and symptom management, treatment adherence, sleep difficulties, sexual concerns, relationship difficulties, and caregiving issues. I believe that therapy can be an effective tool for anyone who is looking for support and guidance during a challenging time or anyone who would like to enhance his ability to achieve life goals.
