SPECIALTIES & POPULATIONS SERVED

ASSESSMENT

I offer pre-surgical, psychodiagnostic, fitness for duty to return to work and career assessments. As a rehabilitation and health psychologist, I use a "Guiding Framework" (Jutte et al., 2013) to inform each of my assessments, allowing for a comprehensive and holistic evaluation of each individual who is referred.

FORENSICS

I am available to provide expert witness chart review for cases related to delirium, critical illnesses, catastrophic injuries and related long-term outcomes such as PTSD, anxiety, functional disability, depression or questions pertaining to return to work.

HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

I provide coaching and therapy for health professionals including nurses, physicians, frontline medical staff and mental health providers. I also offer consultation for working with your patients who have experienced a critical illness or injury.

CRITICAL ILLNESSES AND INJURIES

I am one of only a few psychologists in the United States with expertise in outcomes associated with critical illnesses/injuries. I offer (1) intervention for survivors; (2) consultation to family members while their loved one is in the hospital and afterward; (3) consultation to providers and medical systems.

CANCER SURVIVORSHIP

I provide Health & Behavior assessment and intervention for individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer. My approach is grounded in empirical research and guided by compassion and empathy.

Health & Behavior intervention includes identifying and modifying thoughts and behaviors that relate to your physical problems. This therapy is not psychotherapy, which addresses mental health problems. If needed, you can also see a psychotherapist for mental health concerns.

GROUPS

Balint Group Facilitation

A Balint Group is a purposeful, regular meeting among medical/mental health/allied health providers with discussion of any topic that occupies a provider's mind outside of his or her usual clinical encounters. Individuals or organizations may contact me to coordinate facilitation for your provider group.

Critical Illness Survivors Support Group

If you are a survivor of the ICU or a caregiver/family member, this group is for you. This group is for anyone who has experienced a critical illness or their support people (e.g. spouse, children, friends/family). This group provides an opportunity for people to share personal experiences and feelings, coping strategies, or firsthand information about critical illness, intensive hospitalization, and recovery.

Grief Support Group

This is a friendly, compassion-focused and caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most challenging experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.
