I specialize in conducting evaluations for ADHD and providing treatment for children and adolescents with ADHD as well as those with disruptive behavior disorders.



As a clinical child psychologist, I specialize in conducting evaluations for ADHD and providing treatment for children and adolescents with ADHD as well as those with disruptive behavior disorders. I co-direct the Summer Treatment Program for Children with ADHD. I also lead the Academic Success Group for High School students, and I have conducted training on behavioral and academic interventions for parents, teachers, and school and community professionals.

As I became aware of the behavioral and mental health difficulties encountered by children in the classroom from my mother, who is a teacher, and later from my own experiences as a teacher’s aide, I became interested in pursuing a degree in psychology to learn how to address these difficulties. During college I spent two summers working at a summer treatment program in New York for children with ADHD, which inspired my interest in translating effective interventions for ADHD into classroom settings and making effective strategies accessible to teachers and families.

In addition to helping children and families, I’m involved in research. I am interested in evaluating treatments for ADHD and finding ways to increase access to evidence-based care through schools and other novel delivery methods.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, watching and playing sports, and spending time with my friends and family.
