Welcome to my
private practice.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY27654) who specializes in the management of chronic pain conditions. 

"On a scale from 0 to 10, how would you rate your pain?"

You have probably been asked this question many times throughout your treatment. Putting a number on your pain can be difficult. Even when you are able to rate your symptoms, that number simply cannot capture the full impact of pain on your life.

Pain is not just a physical problem. It can affect the way you think and feel, your ability to manage stress and solve problems, your relationships with others, and your self-identity.

Working with a pain psychologist can help you learn tools to reduce the intensity of your pain, cope more effectively with your pain, and make the most out of your medical treatments.

Are you ready to take back control over your life?
