About

Biography

As a pediatric psychologist, I provide evidence-based behavioral medicine to children, adolescents and young adults. I enjoy learning about patients and their strengths and working with them to improve their functioning and help them thrive.

I specialize in the assessment and treatment of brain injury, headache and chronic pain. I work primarily with children and adolescents seen in the Brain Recovery After Injury (BRAIN) Health and Wellness Center. I offer clinic-based services and short-term outpatient follow-up to youth and families coping with concussion or more severe traumatic brain injuries.

In my clinical practice, as well as my research activities, I value working in teams with experts from multiple specialty areas. Through my work with the Powers Lab at Cincinnati Children’s, I’m actively involved in research focused on treating youth with migraine and related headache conditions, such as continuous headache.

I serve as a research therapist on a federally-funded study looking at how and why different treatments for youth with migraine work. I’m also part of a team that is developing behavioral treatment materials for nurses and other medical providers to use with youth who have migraine headaches.

When I’m not at work, I love to go on hikes, take in art or live music and try new foods. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family.
