About

Bio

Hello! Thanks for looking me up. I am a clinical psychologist in southwest Virginia with nearly a decade of experience providing therapy for a range of emotional health concerns, including depression, anxiety, and challenging life circumstances. I have also worked extensively in medical settings providing behavioral management of chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, needle phobia, insomnia, and smoking cessation. My goal is to help those seeking improved emotional and physical health achieve their desired goals. HealthTap offers a unique platform of care for short-term advice and intervention, and I am please to be a part of the network of providers. For more extended care, my services are also available to citizens of Virginia via several other telemedicine services that include: https://amwell.com/cm/online-counseling/ https://www.livehealthonline.com/psychology Both services are available as a web-link and app. These also allow individuals to utilize health insurance for longer-term behavioral health services. My primary goal in joining HealthTap and other virtual healthcare services is to increase availability of behavioral health interventions for those who have busy lives and cannot easily attend appointments during the typical "8-5" workday, as well as those who may live in an area where behavioral health services are not convenient. To support this goal, my general availability includes evening and weekend hours. If you do not see availability listed that suits your needs, just send me a message and we can coordinate a time that works better. A little more about me: In my free time I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my wife and 3 year old daughter. I look forward to connecting with you!
