I love how science helps us learn things and solve problems. As a clinical psychologist, my goal is to understand the concerns of my patients and families and apply what we know from science to improve their lives.
As a clinical psychologist, I treat children and adolescents who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). I find working with children and their families very rewarding.
My care philosophy is patient- and family-oriented and based in science and empirically supported assessment and treatment. Parents are the experts on their child and family, and I view my role as an outside resource who helps them identify and resolve issues. I provide evidence-based resources to improve functioning and support the execution of those resources.
I value listening to patients and families, helping them develop goals, and sharing information and ideas to address their concerns. I support positive change and love to see families succeed and flourish. My ultimate goal is to make the lives of children and their families better.
My primary research goal is to understand the short- and long-term effects of TBI on the lives of children and their families. I want to use the results of my research to develop and disseminate effective treatments that improve the lives of children and adolescents with TBI.
When I’m not helping patients and families, I like to spend time with my family and dogs. We enjoy being outside and traveling. I also love baking.
