Welcome to my academic homepage!
I am a clinical psychologist based in the beautiful city of Asheville, NC. I hold a PhD in clinical health psychology with specializations in chronic stress, end of life care, trauma, and addiction. My primary research interests lay within the realm of clinical and positive psychology, with emphasis on posttraumatic growth and meaning-making.
I am a certified yoga teacher and teach both in medical and community settings. In my free time, I enjoy reading, live-music, painting, yoga and contemplative practice.
