Chronic pain doesn't just hurt physically. It touches every aspect of our lives, from the personal to the professional. Our relationships, our work, our hobbies and interests, and even our basic human needs can end up on the back burner while we struggle to manage our pain symptoms. Over time, our lives feel like they're shrinking, as pain robs us of the things that matter most. It's no surprise that chronic pain sufferers end up experiencing anxiety, depression, substance use issues, and insomnia up to four times the rate of people who are pain free.

I specialize in brief (6-24 weeks) psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups with chronic pain and other health-related challenges, especially anxiety. I have expertise in treating people with gastrological illnesses and serve on the medical advisory committee of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. I also have extensive experience working in hospitals with medical providers. Clients typically see progress within 6 weeks. Treatment goals generally fall into two categories: meeting work/home responsibilities and increasing self-care. This process involves setting achievable short-term goals while keeping long-term goals in sight.

Life is filled with all sorts of transitions, many of which can be quite challenging. I’m thinking of adjusting to a first job or making a career change, committing to a relationship, becoming a parent, deciding to retire or adjusting to the diagnosis of a chronic illness, just to name a few. While many transitions may go smoothly, others may evoke unanticipated anxiety, frustration, or sadness. This is where another perspective or some added support could be helpful.

I believe that a good psychotherapy treatment should facilitate a process of self-inquiry, where one discovers, over time, how to become more authentic, both with oneself and with others. I practice deep listening with my patients and hold space while they explore their inner world, thoughts, feelings, fantasies, and visions. I specialize in treating people with mood disorders, distress associated with chronic medical conditions, and substance abuse problems.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over thirty years of clinical experience. I've come to view what I do as an unique and specialized form of education. I "teach" not so much by telling people what to do (although good advise can sometimes be very useful), but by offering supportive, empathic and honest feedback. Individuals and problems are unique; sometimes solution oriented approaches are warranted, and other times insight and exploration help to provide clarification and relief.

I work with adolescents and adults who have identified something in their lives that is causing distress or interfering with their goals. These may be uncomfortable thoughts or feelings, or stressful life circumstances both past or present. Or, they may have a more general discomfort, a sense that something just isn’t “right” and feeling “stuck.” Major life transitions, relationship changes, and illness may be catalysts for psychological distress. Regardless, there is usually a desire to understand themselves better, make meaning of their experiences, and to change grow.
