You want to know more?

In addition to providing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for adults and adolescents (age 16 years and older), I offer psychological testing and assessment for a variety of needs, including pre-surgical assessments that may be required by a surgeon or insurance company before surgery can be scheduled.  For instance, psychological evaluations are almost always required before the implantation of a device called a neurostimulator (or spinal cord stimulator) that is used to treat some types of chronic pain and gastric bypass and other bariatric (for weight loss) surgeries.

I also help people who wish to have what is sometimes called “life coaching” (which may be an evaluation of how they are functioning in the world or focused on more specific issues like occupational goals), individuals who want assistance with weight loss and other health-related behaviors, and business owners, attorneys, and other professionals seeking consultation services for a variety of business and legal problems.

When facing big and small dangers in life,
people are either too scared or not scared enough.
Either way there are costs and benefits, so choose wisely.

In March 2020, I moved my practice from my Carrollton office to a telehealth practice (a virtual office where services are provided by video conference) to minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission to my patients.   With ongoing health concerns for many in our population, I have decided to continue to provide all telehealth services through a secure, HIPAA-compliant portal and do not know if or when I will return to my office-based practice.  Please note that I am accepting new spinal cord simulator and bariatric pre-surgical evaluation patients; I am also happy to take new psychotherapy patients as the schedule permits.  Please email me from my contact page if you are interested in any of these services.  And stay well.
