Welcome

I am a Columbia-trained, licensed clinical psychologist, certified hypnotherapist, and health educator. Broadly, my focus is on helping people to reduce uncomfortable physical and emotional symptoms and gain greater insight into who they are and want to be.


To this end, I draw upon the strengths of a number of psychotherapy models, and may also incorporate hypnotherapy, guided imagery, mindfulness training, and/or biofeedback into the work as appropriate. I believe a creative, collaborative, and individualized approach to treatment can be both enjoyable and effective.

In addition, I have expertise with regard to Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies and can discuss their potential pros and cons as part of a broader health care regimen.

Evaluation and Treatment: Adults

I see adults for psychotherapy related to general and/or health-specific concerns. The former can include, but is not limited to:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and Loss
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress management
  • Making healthy behavior changes
  • Performance enhancement
  • Personal growth/seeking meaning in one's life
  • Issues of sexual orientation or gender identity
  • Spiritual issues
  • Career changes

With regard to health-specific concerns, these can include, among others:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular illness
  • HIV
  • Pre-surgical/pre-procedural preparation
  • Gastrointestinal disorders (e.g., Crohn's disease, IBS, ulcerative colitis)
  • Chronic pain syndromes, such as:
  • Migraines/tension headaches
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Post-amputation pain
  • Dental pain/anxiety
  • Complex Regional Pain syndrome
  • Pain/Itch related to dermatologic conditions
  • Making necessary lifestyle changes related to the above

Children and Families

My work with children, adolescents, and families is primarily focused on helping them to address emotional and physical concerns (including pain) and make behavior changes related to a new or preexisting medical condition.
