Chronic Pain

Helping you towards the recovery and restoration of "normal" life

If you have persistent pain (over 50% of the time) for over 3 months, you have joined the chronic pain "club" that you didn't sign up for.

Pain is such a complex phenomenon, and as a result, many people may not understand what you are going through.

I'm glad you arrived here. Read below and see if my treatment method might help you.

Chronic Pain: Welcome
Psychologist Session

All pains are real

Did you know:

  • 1 in 4 children has chronic pain

  • Teens detect pain more than adults because of emerging brain development

  • 80% of youth with chronic pain also have sleep problems

  • 90% of youth with chronic pain also have school problems

  • Teens with chronic pain are 2-3 times more likely to experience depression and anxiety

  • 75% of parents don't know how to help their children with chronic pain

If this is you, you may benefit from working with a specialist who listens and understands what you are going through with no judgement. 

Chronic Pain: About Therapy

A psychologist can treat pain

Regardless of the type of pain you are experiencing, I offer evidence-based psychological treatment that meets your unique pain experience.

I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), biofeedback treatment, hypnosis, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approaches.

I also work with your parents, medical providers, and school, so we can work as a team.

My goal is to help you build skills to deal with your pain with confidence.

A Message to Parents

Integrating teamwork and advocacy

If you are a parent whose child suffers from chronic illness, I'm glad you arrived here. 

Working with parents is a critical and essential part of my treatment approach. I always meet with the parents at the initial visit and periodically throughout the treatment. 

My goal is to:

  • Educate you about your child's medical condition

  • Help you support your child's recovery process

  • Promote your child's normal daily activities with your help

I offer consultations with the parents when their child is ambivalent about seeing a specialist.
