I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Norfolk, Virginia who practiced adult, marital and family therapy for 40 years. A major focus of my work has been on survivorship in chronic and life-threatening illnesses.
I am a retired Community Faculty at the Eastern Virginia Medical School and a life -time member of the American Psychological Association and the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. I developed programs “Many Paths to Healing” for hospital systems and physician groups to provide patients the tools necessary to cope and manage the emotional challenges of illness.
I have presented to local and national organizations, worked with a regional Cancer Network Committee and contributed to the book, Breast Cancer: A Psychological Treatment Manual. My recent book, Your Journey beyond Breast Cancer- Tools for the Road (2021) is an interactive guide to restore, revive and rebuild patients’ lives at any milepost on their breast cancer journey.
