Acerca de mí
I was born and raised in Alabama and relocated to Georgia in 1994 to begin my career in the behavioral health field. I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in psychology. My studies had a strong behavioral emphasis, and I was able to train with some of the most outstanding scholars in the field of applied behavioral analysis and cognitive behavioral therapy. I am told by my mother that from an early age I had an insatiable curiosity of answering the question, "Why do people do what they do?" and I never considered another career path. I started clinical practice in 1996 and consider myself to be one of the fortunate few who love to go to work every day. Personally, I have been married for over 20 years and I have a daughter. My greatest moments of joy, peace and fun are found in the company of my family. When not working, I enjoy running, rowing and a good book.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
As a psychologist in the Behavioral Health Department at Kaiser Permanente, I am dedicated to helping our members gain insight and implement the most effective strategies for achieving not only psychological well-being, but complete health. My daily work is most often guided by a quote of William James, "The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind." I employ treatment modalities such as structured cognitive-behavioral therapy, clinical hypnosis and life skills training to address concerns such as depression, anxiety, parenting effectiveness, life transition and trauma resolution.
Cómo vivo bien
My guiding philosophy for thriving on a daily basis is that the most fulfilled and content people are not those that have the best of everything, but those that make the best of everything. I have learned three critical components that help me make the best of every day: Engaging in some form of outside physical activity for at least 20 minutes, quiet time spent sharing and laughing with my husband and daughter, and sleeping 7 to 8 hours per night. I also enjoy traveling, rowing on the Chattahoochee and volunteering monthly for the Hope Project, a local non-profit that provides women with job and life skills training.
