Health psychology treatment
I specialize in treating health conditions of many causes. I provide treatment for a diverse range of disorders including stress induced illness, headaches, gastroenterological disorders, rheumatic diseases, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions. I currently work as a health psychologist at Kaiser Oakland, where I work in collaboration with physicians in pain clinics, primary care, and OBGYN departments. I have additionally given many talks on chronic illness and teach groups and classes on pain and illness.
I have a specific interest area in the treatment of women's pelvic pain, which includes all areas between the waist and the thighs. I held a previous position as the psychologist in the Kaiser Permanente Pelvic Pain Clinic in San Francisco with Dr. Jen Gunter and have experience treating conditions including pain with penetration and sex, vulvodynia, IBS, pregnancy and postpartum health, interstitial cystitis, and endometriosis. I currently am the pelvic pain psychologist at Kaiser Oakland, and have also taught groups and classes on the subject.
I can provide in-home and telecommunication sessions if your pain and illness limits your ability to leave your home. My goal is to help you lead a more vibrant and full life.
