About

Biography

As a pediatric psychologist, I treat children and adolescents with neurodevelopmental disorders including autism spectrum disorder and developmental disabilities. I use applied behavior analysis (ABA), behavioral and cognitive behavioral therapy, with an emphasis on behavioral parent training. My goal is to teach families strategies they can realistically implement in their daily lives to support their child's needs and comfortably manage difficult situations.

During my undergraduate studies, I was an ABA provider and immediately loved working with children and their families. I provided services in rural areas to families in great need of in-home services and other resources. This experience ignited my passion for child and family advocacy and for working with children with neurodevelopmental disorders.

In my role as a pediatric psychologist, I strive to provide evidence-based treatment while teaching families how to carry over the effects of treatment in their homes and communities. I want parents and caregivers to understand that the treatment doesn't end when they leave the clinic.

My approach to patient care stems from my training as a scientist-practitioner and a child and family advocate. I strive to help parents and caregivers become strong advocates for their children and feel confident in doing so.

In my free time, I like being outside while hiking, biking or exploring someplace new. I also enjoy a good book, movies, meditation and yoga. I've become a bit of a foodie and look forward to new restaurants that are popping up around Cincinnati!
