I am a licensed psychologist experienced in the evaluation and treatment of mood, anxiety and coping in children, teens and young adults.
Clinical Psychologist in Durham, NC
I utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy in most of my work, creating a treatment plan specific to the individual to target their treatment goals.
I have extensive experience treating anxiety in individuals age 21 or younger. This includes general anxiety, specific phobias, and anxiety related to medical conditions, treatments, or injuries.
I have experience working in a pediatric oncology clinic and in outpatient mental health clinics focusing on coping with diagnosis and treatment, as well as integrating back into daily life following remission.
I have worked with individuals who experience acute or chronic pain, as well as many different medical conditions and injuries. Focus of treatment is variable, from pain coping skills to adherence to coping with social difficulties surrounding illness.
