As a pediatric psychologist, I work with children ages 11 and older and their families who are dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss. I also treat patients in this age group who are coping with medical conditions. I offer behavioral medicine and cognitive-behavioral interventions.
I have enjoyed volunteer work since I was in high school, especially with children. One of my most rewarding volunteer experiences was as a big sister in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America program. Mentoring children and adolescents inspired me to want to be a psychologist, and I later went on to complete a fellowship in behavioral medicine at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
Adolescence is an exciting and challenging age, and I enjoy helping young people and their families navigate this time of life. I also enjoy working with clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. I consider it a privilege to work with my patients and their families, and I seek to have a respectful, collaborative relationship with each one.
In my free time I enjoy traveling, going to Broadway shows and watching my children play sports.
