About My Clients

In addition to treating anxiety, trauma, grief and depression, I specialize in helping people cope with medical illness and achieve health-related goals. I have 10+ years experience in psycho-oncology helping people cope with cancer, and have particular interest in women’s health including breast & gynecologic cancers, infertility, pregnancy & perinatal concerns and other gynecologic conditions. I also have experience in obesity/weight management, pain management, insomnia and illness anxiety.

My Background and Approach

I majored in Psychology at The Pennsylvania State University and went on to receive a doctorate in Clinical Health Psychology from The Ohio State University. I completed my internship at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (now Rutgers) and postdoctoral fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic. I have extensive training in evidence-based approaches and routinely use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This includes exposure therapy for anxiety and compulsive disorders and cognitive processing therapy for trauma / traumatic grief. I use Acceptance & Commitment Therapy for those interested in mindfulness and achieving values-driven personal goals, and Schema Therapy - an integrative approach to challenge long-standing unhelpful life and relationship patterns. I offer all these therapies in a supportive and collaborative environment. Through our work together you will enhance your existing strengths and learn new skills to help you adapt, cope and grow in the face of life challenges.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about emotional well-being, health psychology and helping you achieve your goals of wellness, serenity and personal growth.
