I have always been interested in how psychology, motivation and the physical body are connected.

In graduate school, I studied counseling psychology as well as neuropsychology, which gave me a good background to understanding mind-body interactions. I earned my Ph.D. from University of North Texas, and completed a visiting internship at the Russian Federation Childrens Hospital in Moscow, where I worked with neurologists and neurosurgeons. Other internships were at the VA Hospital in Martinez, California and UC Davis Medical Center.

More recently, I was director of a multidisciplinary pain treatment center for several years. At this clinic the focus for patients was on finding meaning in life despite having a major health problem. Teaching and coaching the hundreds of individuals dealing with chronic physical pain taught me a great deal about motivation, goal-setting and achievement. I learned much about what works and what doesn't; this knowledge and experience is what I bring to my current clients.
