About Me

As a psychologist, I specialize in rehabilitation psychology, specifically working with patients who are dealing with burn injury, cancer, spinal cord injury or chronic pain. It’s rewarding to assist those dealing with traumatic or distressing injuries as well as other medical events in a patient’s process to recovery.

I help patients who are coping with chronic illness or new injury to find healthy and adaptive ways of dealing with these health challenges. My goal is to see that my patients reach or even exceed their goals in order to lead meaningful, fulfilling and enriching lives.

At Ohio State, I really enjoy working with a multidisciplinary team where my colleagues are just as passionate and dedicated as I am to patient care and promoting increased awareness to a healthy lifestyle.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time and relaxing with my family, traveling and reading. I also enjoy being outdoors and kayaking whenever I can.
