About

Biography

I’m a pediatric psychologist with a special interest in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, autism spectrum disorder and early childhood development. I believe in meeting families where they are and taking a family-centered approach to care.

I have always enjoyed working with children, and I started by coaching kids’ soccer. When I got into the field of psychology, I was drawn to families, family systems and early childhood development. My training experiences in graduate school introduced me to the world of developmental disabilities, where I’ve found the kids and families are what make this field incredible.

In my practice, I approach every child and family as the unique people they are. Each has their own needs and strengths. I enjoy listening to their concerns, answering their questions and helping them set priorities through diagnostic evaluations. It’s my privilege to hear their stories and their challenges, and I find joy in interacting with families and celebrating their successes.

In my spare time, I like to be active and outdoors with my husband, our son and our two dogs. We love live music and seeing our favorite bands at the many amazing venues in the city. Most of my family lives here in Ohio, and we spend a lot of time together.
