I received my doctorate (Ph.D.) in Clinical Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University/The Medical College of Virginia, with training in assessment, intervention, and consultation with both adults and children. Following the completion of a clinical internship at the Indiana University School of Medicine Consortium of Clinical Psychology, I was invited to remain on the faculty and taught within the Riley Children's Hospital Child Development Center. Later, I completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pediatric Psychology at The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. I subsequently joined the faculty of the Columbus Children's Hospital (now called Nationwide Children's Hospital), the pediatric training hospital for The Ohio State University School of Medicine, where I was Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and the Director of the Consultation-Liaison Service for 8 years. After moving to the Northwest, I served, for 6 years, as a member of the Pediatric Psychology Service at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma. There, I developed and coordinated the multidisciplinary Eating Disorders Program. In 2003 I left Mary Bridge Hospital to begin my private practice. Beyond teaching and providing care to children, teens, adults, and their families in medical settings, I have co-authored a professional text on helping children with acute and chronic health issues. I have also published a number of articles in professional journals and engaged in many public speaking forums on topics that have included parenting children with medical challenges, eating disorders, the clinical uses of hypnosis in symptom management, and the management of acute and chronic pain. Additionally, I am a Certified Trainer in Disaster Mental Health, and am a member of the King County Public Health Medical Reserve Corps, and provide clinical services to our US Military Veterans through the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and Give an Hour (GAH).
