Cancer Care
A primary specialty of mine is helping people with cancer--whether they are adjusting to a recent diagnosis or coping with the stress of being a survivor. A cancer diagnosis can be very jarring and make a person feel that they have lost the ground beneath their feet. I see my role as providing a supportive environment to assist individuals live the life they really value even in the context of cancer treatment or survivorship. This may involve learning new ways of working with difficult thoughts and emotions, connecting with the positive meaning in the situation, or addressing the effects of the diagnosis on family relationships, life roles, or spiritual issues.

I previously worked as a psychotherapist at Indiana University (IU) Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis. I also completed a pre-doctoral psycho-oncology research fellowship funded by NIH and have authored several published articles in cancer care, including my dissertation focusing on cancer-related fatigue. I currently work as an interventionist on a research teams at IU School of Medicine assisting cancer survivors with persistent cancer-related fatigue and the other working with couples when one is a parent undergoing bone marrow transplant. I also previously provided therapy in two research studies for couples when one partner had advanced cancer or was undergoing a bone marrow transplant.
