“Use your mind to improve wellness and to increase happiness.”


I look at treating the whole person and how the mind and body are related. Making positive changes in your emotional health can improve your physical wellbeing.

Psychotherapy can be a positive experience to heal from emotional distress, to improve emotional and physical wellness, to learn positive life skills, to use strengths to solve problems, and to increase happiness and resilience in life. Changing your thinking can change your emotional and physical wellbeing.

As a licensed psychologist for thirty years, I have helped children and adults in clinics, hospitals, and communities improve their emotional and physical health. Using cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and positive psychology, I have treated patients with a range of emotional issues from all over the world.

The scientific research studies show the effectiveness of psychotherapy in treating emotional issues and stress related to physical conditions, such as weight problems, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep disorders, cardiac disease, postpartum disorders, chronic pain, gastrointestinal problems, head trauma, and many other conditions. When treating stress related to medical conditions, it is helpful to coordinate psychological treatment with your medical providers to improve wellness.

Since healthy relationships are important in a healthy lifestyle, I treat couples and families. I have treated children and adults who had suffered trauma. For over eleven years, I had treated active duty military members and military family members for emotional issues, including combat stress. I had taught wellness classes on the psychological factors related to weight management for the military.
