I am both a child and adolescent psychologist as well as a pediatric nurse practitioner. I have been working with children, teens, and families for 45 years in a variety of pediatric settings, including 20 years on medical school faculty.
For 25 years, I have worked exclusively with students with medical conditions, physical symptoms, stress, and/or anxiety, worry and fears.
I have expertise in combining several approaches including medical hypnosis, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), computerized biofeedback, mindfulness, stress management, peak performance (especially sports), relaxation and breath re-training, and self-regulation approaches.
I work very collaboratively with students, exchange some humor, and compare gum bubbles.
