• “Your body can withstand almost anything,
    it’s your mind that you have to convince”
    ~Author Unknown


    Life isn’t always easy. Maybe you are recovering from surgery and feel depressed and anxious? Or you’re an injured athlete who is struggling? Or perhaps you’re a college athlete trying to figure out how to balance the demands unique to student athletes? Or you are a woman entering into perimenopause, wondering why you are having difficulties with memory and mood? In each of these situations your mind can get in the way of understanding how to solve the difficulties you may be encountering such as negative thinking, feeling out of control, and watching your stress and anxiety levels go through the ceiling.

    You may wonder what these various groups of clients I work with have in common. Whether you are recovering from injury, feeling overwhelmed about having too much on your plate, or entering into another phase of life, you may feel you’ve lost control of your mind and body in some way.                

    “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”

    Eleanor Roosevelt

    I help people like you understand the connection between your brain and body, and how we can use our brain power more effectively to heal from surgery and injury, feel less frazzled, or cope with the changes that accompany mid-life and perimenopause.

    Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Please reach out if you want to learn more about mind-body connection and how you can gain the practical skills to feel better. 

    About Me

    I’m a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Providence RI.  Psychology is my second career.  After working as a professor and research scientist studying experimental medications in the treatment of high blood pressure, I decided to re-train in clinical psychology to continue my understanding of stress, health and well-being, but from a psychological standpoint. My background in medical sciences and psychology gives me a unique perspective in understanding the body’s stress response and how to manage it by examining the connection between mind (brain) and body.
