Clinical Work

I am honored to work at the Veterans Administration Puget Sound Health Care System, Rehabilitation Medicine service line, where I provide psychological services to individuals with injuries and illnesses.

I have been trained in evidence-based practices for a range of conditions including anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.  I have pursued specialized training in Prolonged Exposure (PTSD), Cognitive Processing Therapy (PTSD), Exposure and Response Prevention (OCD), behavioral treatment of anxiety, and Motivational Interviewing.  You can learn more about evidence-based practice here.  Help is available and change is possible.

I am grateful to previous clinical mentors/supervisors for their excellent training and guidance: Melissa Hunt at the Penn Psychological Assessment Clinic, Alan Goldstein at the Penn Anxiety Program,  Thomas Litwicki at Old Pueblo Community Services, Elna Yadin and David Yusko at Penn’s Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety, and Virginia O’Hayer at Drexel University Behavioral Medicine Center City Clinic.
