    Biography

    My approach is to empower you to cope better to life’s challenges in a way that is innovative and that has lasting results. I use virtual reality as a tool in therapy and am available regardless of the distance-through a secure telemedicine application. My specialty is in treating chronic health problems. In France, I was professor of clinical and health psychology and I directed several research projects on anxiety, mood disorders, addiction and trauma. I have published the findings of my research in nearly 50 articles in scientific journals and authored 5 books. In 2018, I completed a fellowship at the City of Hope Medical Center. 

    I integrate the use of technology in patient care by utilizing virtual reality (VR) to enhance CBT therapy. VR has the ability to transport the patient into virtual scenarios in order to address issues without exposing them to undue harm en vivo (in your real life). This technique has proven helpful to relieve and/or resolve various phobias and disorders.

    I combine VR with biofeedback to establish progress markers in your treatment. The following are types of disorders that can be treated with the use of VR: • Phobias (all types) • Generalized anxiety • Social anxiety • OCD • Depression and others Mood disorders • Adjustment Disorders • Addictions • Pain Management
