Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests include child abuse and neglect prevention and treatment, infant mental health and development, young child (ages birth to 12) and caregiver therapy services, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in children, children involved with child welfare, children of parents with substance abuse disorders and children of parents with criminal involvement.
My philosophy is to provide research supported treatments for children and families within a flexible framework that works best for each family. It is important to me that each family receives care from a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team that provides wrap around services to build upon family strengths.
In my spare time, I am committed to supporting good lives for companion animals, reading novels and watching Glee.
I work to assist low-income families in getting basic veterinary services for their pets.
