I am an experienced doctoral level Licensed Clinical Psychologist specializing in general and Health Psychology. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups.
I have almost 15 years of experience as a Clinical Psychologist, and am a graduate of the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, specializing in Health Psychology. Among my areas of expertise are helping people manage chronic medical and stress related conditions, anxiety management, biofeedback, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy combined with relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques (when appropriate). I work closely with your various medical and mental health providers to ensure good communication and the best quality of care.
I am a cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to actively problem solve and collaborate with my clients to increase their sense of control and empowerment. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion, humor and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
I was previously affiliated with the University of Massachusetts Medical Center where I was on faculty in the Department of Psychiatry, the Department of Medicine and held privileges in the Department of Orthopedics. I was also previously affiliated with the Department of Veteran's Affairs, Fallon Health Care and Commonwealth Psychology Associates in Boston, Massachusetts. Through my years of practice, I have earned a strong reputation for offering effective and empathic quality care that gets results and helps my clients to regain control over their health and well being.
