2. Does the line of work you are in now stem from a sense of passion you had prior to your decision of field?

3. Diabetes is the topic I'm interested and I would like to know your opinion as to whether or not you think stress is a factor for diabetes.

4. Is Diabetes permanent once you have it or can it be rversed in your opinion?

Answer
Stephanie,

I chose the field of psychology because I enjoy talking with people about their day to day concerns. My passion grew as I became more knowledgeable in the field. There is a volume of research suggesting that stress plays a role in many medical conditions, including diabetes. Type I diabetes (juvenile diabetes) is not reversible. Type II diabetes is controllable and reversable with better health practices (healthy eating and exercise).

Best wishes,
Dr. Luna

Expertise

I specialize in clinical psychology with particular experience in clinical hypnosis, borderline personality disorder, LGBTQ, and aging. I have not worked with children for several years and would not feel comfortable answering child and adolescent based questions. My interests in adult psychology are fairly diverse, so please, sent me a question and lets see if I can help.

Experience

I have been working in the field of psychology, to some degree, since 1998. Initially, my work was more behaviorally based, but through my educational and training experiences, I have expanded to a more eclectic viewpoint. I have taught introductory psychology and have worked in college counseling. I have also studied hypnosis for several years, completing my dissertation on basic research in hypnosis. Finally, I completed my internship and residency in a transitional treatment program for young adults (18 - 16) with difficulty transitioning from home.
