  • Boston University School of Education Department of Counseling Psychology - 1976

My primary focus is treating patients who are experiencing psychological consequences as a result of chronic pain. My patients include those who are stuck in a cycle of depression and anger—which actually exacerbates pain symptoms—rather than choosing a lifestyle with which they can manage pain. Patients with chronic pain often experience depression and anxiety, as well.

 

As a clinical psychologist, I listen to patients as they describe the impact chronic pain has on their lives, and help them adapt and be more resilient. I use a cognitive behavioral approach to help patients come to terms with their condition and help them reach their goals. We focus on working through the mourning that accompanies the inability to engage in former activities and on altering perspectives—on seeing situations as challenging rather than catastrophic.

 

 

 

My interest in working with this particular patient population stems from my personal experience living with chronic pain, as well as the knowledge that chronic pain is becoming a growing epidemic. My other interests include reading, walking, exercising and practicing meditation techniques.
