Philosophy of Care

I am deeply committed to the integration of behavioral health in primary and specialty medical care. Combining behavioral and medical health care services offers important benefits for patients and providers, and can make overall care more efficient, and effective.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

As a practicing clinical psychologist, I have provided diagnostic, assessment, and psychotherapy services to a diverse population of children, adolescents, adults, and families, in hospital, clinic, and school settings. I have experience delivering individual, family, and group psychotherapy, and providing consultation to primary care and specialty medical providers, teachers and school guidance staff, and community organizations. As a clinical content expert and digital health strategist, I have developed innovative programs, products, and new methods, that increase patient and provider engagement, improve clinical outcomes, and improve the quality and efficiency of health service delivery.
