Hello and welcome to my location on the internet. I hope you find what you’re looking for! I am a licensed psychologist (Wisconsin, 1992) in independent practice. My specialties include neuropsychology and health and rehabilitation psychology. I work with individuals age 16 through older adult years, in individual, couples, family and small group formats. I am experienced in helping with a wide range of problems affecting a person’s mood, thinking and behavior, with emphasis on helping those living with pain and other physical health conditions in which stress and stress management play an important role. I provide care to residents and consultation to staff in many skilled nursing and assisted living facilities in the Madison area. I also provide memory improvement education and training to individuals and small groups. I have provided expert work in psychological- and neuropsychological-legal matters, and have qualified as an expert in Dane County and Dodge County Circuit Courts.

I am a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), National Academy of Neuropsychology, and member of APA Division 40 (Society for Clinical Neuropsychology), member and former President of Division 42 (Psychologists in Independent Practice) and member of Division 55 (American Society for the Advancement of Pharmacotherapy).

I maintain Allied Health Professional privileges at Meriter Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital Madison.
