I am deeply passionate about working with survivors of burn and trauma and feel privileged to be a part of each patient's healing process. Burn and trauma injuries affect the entire family and I work closely with patients and their support system from the onset of injury as well as months and years after an injury. I emphasize cognitive behavioral strategies in working to improve acute stress and PTSD symptoms. My work has also focused on the areas of grief, loss, cosmetic differences, hidden burns/injuries, survivor's guilt and survivors of work injuries.
I enjoy working with patients of all ages and use a collaborative, patient-driven approach to help individuals to get back to living their lives. I facilitate burn support groups, coordinate a peer support program, and have a special interest in addressing body image and sexuality concerns during recovery. I feel it is a true privilege to be a part of my patients' and their loved ones journeys through recovery after a traumatic injury.
My published work includes articles and chapters regarding trauma and burn recovery.
