I am a warm, seasoned, excellently-trained psychologist. I help individuals who are feeling unhappy in their lives, with themselves or with their relationships. My specialty area is helping people cope with chronic illness. I virtually always have a few clients with these challenges, while the majority of my clients struggle with other issues.
As a Professional Member of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), I have developed expertise in helping others cope with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and subsequently, with other chronic illnesses (eg. Cancer; Diabetes, …). I’ve seen how pain can initiate growth, and ultimately, strength. This belief guides my practice and optimism.
