I am a clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience treating teenagers, adults, families, and couples. I am an active therapist, who is both direct and warm. I am trained in cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic approaches and frequently integrate these techniques in order to meet the specific needs of my patients.
My specialities include stress management, coping with depression and anxiety, recovering from eating disorders, and working through trauma. I am a health psychologist with a focus on type 1 and type 2 diabetes. I also help patients with behavioral approaches to weight loss and bariatric surgical evaluations.
I teach locally and nationally and write about the unique problem of eating disorders in type 1 diabetes in professional journals and a recent book. I consult to health care groups as well as pharmaceutical and medical device companies to help deepen their understanding of the patient's experience of managing chronic disease with the goal of increasing adherence to treatment.
