I traveled an eclectic path, pursuing many interests before finding my passion in the field of psychology. Upon completion of a Master's Degree followed by a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, I began my career as an Assistant Professor and Staff Psychologist at Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC), Department of Anesthesia, in Southern California. During my tenure at LLUMC, I enjoyed opportunities integrating psychological concepts with a diversity of chronic pain conditions and life-threatening illnesses. This included the creation of Transitions, a clinical support group specific to young adults challenged by severe health conditions such as cancer.
With my life and business partner, Dr. Kurt Bickford, I developed a rehabilitation center for the treatment of chronic pain and stress conditions where I developed and utilized an inter-disciplinary approach, now a standard in the industry. Opportunities to share this treatment model and research were offered at both national and international levels. My private practice of 25 years has been a composite of services including psychotherapy, applied physiology, executive and organizational coaching, collaboration on professional monthly seminars, a monthly radio show and a variety of publications emphasizing consciousness, psychology, temperament and the possibilities of the human endeavor.
