Pain and Psychology

Call 520-874-7500 for an appointment.

Chronic pain can impact all parts of life including physical, emotional, and mental well-being. People with chronic pain frequently report problems with their mood, sense of control, stress, identity, weight, sleep, relationships, and/or activity level. Due to its complex nature, it is important to treat chronic pain and related conditions in a holistic manner. We use evidence-based behavioral interventions to help individuals with chronic pain to be more active and engaged in life. We collaborate with BUMC and other clinics to provide holistic care.



  • Individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): work one-on-one to learn about and develop coping skills for chronic pain and related difficulties, such as sleep difficulties, depression, anxiety, and other behavioral and mental health concerns
  • Living Beyond Pain Group: 8-week skills-based group focused on pain management

Psychological Evaluations

  • Pre-surgical pain evaluations: assess for a patient’s suitability for surgery, psychiatric morbidities, and post-surgery outcomes
