I established my private practice in uptown New Orleans in 2005. Prior to 2005 I was a tenured professor at theTulane University School of Medicine for twenty five years. In addition to my private practice, I continue my affiliation with Tulane as professor emeritus. Through out my clinical career I've used a mind/body integration model to optimize treatment results. My mission, as a clinician, is to help my patients realize their full potential.
As a seasoned practitioner, tenured professor at the Tulane University School of Medicine, and former Senior Scientist with the Veterans Administration, I have been privileged to use my 30 plus years of experience as a psychologist to help hundreds of people achieve their goals. I will provide you with my expertise to identify the basis of your mental, emotional and, when present, associated physical challenges.
