Staff Psychologist I, Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology


About Me


As a pediatric psychologist in the Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology, I specialize in evaluating, diagnosing and treating children and adolescents with neurodevelopmental disabilities who have problems related to development, learning or autism spectrum disorder.

In my practice, I believe in the importance of providing family-centered, evidence-based treatment. I try to establish rapport with families by providing a warm, friendly and positive approach while meeting families where they are.

Outside of my clinical work, I value community engagement and training and try to provide as much community training as I can to help others understand this unique population.

After working at a camp for children with disabilities, I knew I wanted to work with this population. I approach each family as their own system and ensure that family members are heard and are a key part of the team.

I enjoy spending my free time with my family and being outside!
