Medical Psychology & Mind-Body Medicine

I’ve been using psychological tools to help people get relief from medical conditions since 2007, when I completed my first internship at an inpatient hospital unit for chronic headache pain. Since then, I’ve received advanced training in a large number of techniques clinically proven to reduce discomfort, increase healthy behavior, facilitate physical and emotional healing, and improve quality of life. Some of those are:

Medical issues that benefit from mind-body therapy focused on stress reduction & emotional freedom

Medical issues that benefit from therapy focused on motivation & behavioral change

Medical issues that benefit from relaxation & hypnosis

  • Chronic pain & neuropathy
  • Surgical wound healing
  • Healing of injuries
  • Skin conditions
  • Asthma
  • Side effects of medical treatment (such as chemotherapy for cancer)
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Menopausal symptoms (such as hot flashes and irritability)
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Bruxism / TMJ pain

Schedule an appointment

Mind-body psychotherapy is not a substitute for appropriate medical care — it is simply one component of your care that can help to enhance your body’s resilience, response to treatment, and rate of healing… as well as your emotional well-being. When you schedule your first appointment, I’ll ask you to sign a release form that will allow me to communicate with your physician, so I can coordinate with them to provide you the best care.
