I obtained a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Washington State University and went on to complete a residency and post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Washington School of Medicine. In these settings, I received specialized training in health psychology, rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology as well as experience working with healthcare providers and executives.
I have been on faculty at the Johns Hopkins Medical Center and the University of Washington / Harborview Medical Center. I have taught and supervised rehabilitation psychology interns, post-doctoral fellows, and medical students as well as engaged in NIH-funded research.
Prior to obtaining my PhD in Clinical Psychology, I worked as an infectious disease epidemiologist and Program Coordinator for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, GA.
My Specialty Areas of Practice and Professional Work
I specialize in working with individuals without prior mental health concerns who are now experiencing difficulties after a critical illness (e.g. COVID-19, ARDS/respiratory issues, sepsis), or catastrophic injury (e.g. traumatic brain injury).
Everyone's path toward adjustment following a critical illness, chronic illness diagnosis, hospitalization, catastrophic injury or disability is different. I can help you to figure out what "adjustment" means for you and how to re-establish your sense of "normal" in the context of new or worsening physical, cognitive or emotional health.
I specialize in providing individualized treatment, based in cognitive-behavioral and acceptance-based research-supported methods, to individuals with a variety of difficulties pertaining to anxiety, stress, and life/work transitions.
I provide healthcare organizations with individualized programs - based on their target goals - designed to enhance the bottom line through improved provider satisfaction and patient interactions, quality of care, patient satisfaction, and reductions in physician turnover.
I specialize in helping healthcare professionals and executives maximize life and career functioning through coaching. I have advanced training and experience working with medical providers and executives who are experiencing stress, burnout, or are trying to identify or readjust their career or personal goals.
I thoroughly enjoy editing as well as writing and publishing and I have continued to work on collaborative projects with national and international colleagues since opening my business practice. I welcome additional opportunities to become involved in editorial projects in particular.
I am available to review records as expert witness for specialty areas of practice including, but not limited to: general rehabilitation; critical care medicine; traumatic brain injury; providers/healthcare professionals.

She is an expert in psychological assessment and in the delivery of specialized psychological services and she combines a sharp intellect with a warm and nurturing persona. She is outstandingly capable and will put clients at ease, as she supports and guides them on their way to healing and wholeness.
