Additional Comments

"I was drawn to work with oncology patients because my brother had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma when he was 18. I saw then how important psychological support was for cancer patients and wanted to provide that for others."

Prior to joining Lakeland, Dr. Birris worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences at Loyola University Medical Center in Illinois. She guided cancer and organ transplant patients through the different phases of their illness, assessments, consultations, support services, and treatment.

Dr. Birris earned both her Master's degree and a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She is a member of the American Psychological Association.

Her areas of expertise include helping patients deal with psychological issues related to cancer, illness, anxiety, depression, pain management, stress, and smoking cessation.
