“Join me in this exploration of a brighter, healthier understanding of living.”
I am a Health Psychologist recently completing my doctoral degree August 2017.
My journey has been the result of twenty-five plus years of experience in the conduct of human subject in HIV disease, chronic pain,
and a variety of neurological diseases. My experience began during the years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic that involved a combination of activism and science.
I am personally struggling with issues around aging and maintaining health. I want to encourage and share how combining the information gained through research and complementary/alternative treatments [e.g. hypnosis, and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR)]. My research focuses on studying the language of chronic illness and how this impacts behavior, trust, and the patient-provider relationship.
