About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

People can create lasting and powerful changes in their lives. Many are able to do this on their own, using their own strengths, skills and support. Others may have a strong desire to change but have barriers that stand in their way, such as a mental illness, limited healthy support, addiction, or a history of traumatic experiences. These things can make change more difficult, but it is still possible with some help. I have been honored to walk the journey of recovery with many people facing a wide variety of challenges. Their effort and success inspire me to continue to help others.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I received my doctoral degree in Psychology from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. My career has focused on treating adults with trauma, although I also treat a wide variety of diagnoses, including substance use disorders. I have worked extensively with emergency services providers, including police, firefighters and emergency medical personnel. I am a member of the York Opioid Collaborative, working especially to improve access to treatment. I also spend a great deal of time training new psychologists in our APA accredited pre-doctoral internship program.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I also enjoy reading, exercising, kayaking, taking day trips, and vacations to new places. I am a volunteer for the South Central PA Critical Incident Stress Management Team, providing crisis intervention for emergency services personnel after critical incidents. I'm a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies (especially still warm from the oven), ice cream, and peanut butter fudge.
