About Me

Biography

As a pediatric psychologist, I specialize in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety disorders, as well as depression and other mood disorders in children and adolescents. I also provide clinical services for LGBT children and adolescents, and I work closely with the Transgender Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s.

When I entered graduate school, I had a strong interest in health psychology, and I envisioned working with adults in a medical setting. But my interim work with adolescents on an inpatient unit was really quite fulfilling, and during the course of my graduate training I was drawn to working with children and adolescents.

In my practice, I see psychological treatment as a collaborative process. I join with the child or adolescent and their family to identify and tackle the challenges they are facing.

I’m well versed in using cognitive-behavioral strategies for treating anxiety disorders and the psychological aspects of acute and chronic illness. I bring my expertise to this work, always with a human touch uniquely tailored to the needs of each family I serve.

In addition, I have extensive experience in psychological evaluation — from the diagnosis of developmental and learning problems to the in-depth assessment of personality, social and emotional difficulties.

I’m proud to be a native of the east side of Cincinnati, and I have deep roots in the area in which my office is located.
