I am a Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Division of Medical Oncology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Working in the field of Psycho-Oncology, I help patients improve coping and adjustment around their diagnosis. I focus on the difficulties that emerge at the intersection of cancer and mental health across the cancer continuum, from diagnosis into survivorship. Cancer is a disease that not only impacts our bodies, but our psychosocial functioning as well, including our mental health, our relationships, and how we take care of ourselves. At the Testicular Cancer Summit I hope to highlight that for cancer survivors, understanding and addressing the psychological impact of your disease is critical for your health, as well as your overall quality of life.
