I’m a pediatric psychologist with special interests in anxiety disorders, mood disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other behavior disorders. I offer cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and I also provide parent training interventions including parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT).

My path to psychology stemmed from a different passion from my youth: literature. As I grew up, I developed a deep appreciation for the beautiful and powerful ways in which words can be woven together to communicate narratives about the human experience. Through my work as a child psychologist, I enjoy empowering patients and families to take control of their own stories.

In my practice, I approach care from a framework that considers the multiple biological and environmental factors that may influence thoughts, feelings and behavior. My interventions are drawn from what research has shown to be effective, while also considering each patient’s unique context. I strive to understand what is important to patients and their families and to work collaboratively with them to achieve their goals.

In my free time, I enjoy baking, being outdoors and spending time with my family.
