About me

I am a clinical health psychologist, specializing in psycho-oncology -- the study and practice of the biobehavioral, psychosocial, and existential aspects of cancer survivorship, from diagnosis through the end of life. I've spent the last 25 years engaged in research and clinical practice, first at the University of Florida Health Science Center and later in private practice. Much of that time has included a particular focus on patient and caregiver survivorship after blood marrow/stem cell transplantation.
