Welcome to my author page!
This is the best place to find out about me, my upcoming releases, and the news about my writing. Thanks for taking the time to check out my website.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works in the specialty area of health psychology at a large academic medical center. I work with individuals who live with chronic illness and who need to make important changes in their lives in support of their overall health and well-being.
My passion is understanding what helps people change so that they can lead lives that are physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially healthy. To understand this better, I read the research literature on motivation, persistence, and impulse control, and then I apply it to everyday problems.
Over the past fifteen years, I have delivered numerous presentations on willpower and personal change to medical patients, members of the community, and professional audiences. I have led and designed a number of psychotherapeutic groups that help individuals adjust to specific chronic medical conditions.
I am also a Certified Educator in Personal Finance. This specialty training helps me apply the psychological research on willpower to human financial behavior.
I enjoy hearing from readers, so please feel free to send me a message!
