I have experience and expertise in providing empirically supported psychological interventions for frontline medical providers, individuals who have experienced a critical illness or catastrophic injury, and individuals seeking clarity for stress-related difficulties or life/work transitions. My particular area of expertise is in working with individuals who were high functioning prior to their critical illness or injury, but who are experiencing new difficulties such as anxiety, mood changes or cognitive difficulties that are impacting their life in important ways.
I also enjoy working with healthcare professionals and executives (with/without a history of acquired brain injury, other injury, or medical condition) to assist them in maximizing life functioning (both personal and career). Because of my background as a rehabilitation psychologist, I am able to utilize techniques and processes that are backed by research and helpful for clarifying personal values - key to enhancing both life and career function.
I have a background in infectious diseases, which can be helpful in our work together particularly if you are a frontline medical provider working with patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or you are a patient recovering from a COVID-19 diagnosis.
Additional areas of expertise include helping clients with nutrition/exercise changes and other life transitions.
