I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist committed to improving the lives of children and adolescents who live with anxiety. To that end, the focus of my practice is on teaching children and adolescents to use evidence-based cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) skills to manage their anxiety symptoms effectively.
I earned my doctorate in child behavior therapy at West Virginia University in 1996 and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Brown University in 1997. I then served as the Assistant Director of the Behavioral Medicine program at Children’s Hospital in Boston, MA (1997-2001). My work at Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School included grant-funded research designed to enhance the quality of life of children with chronic illness.
In 2001, I opened my private practice so as to focus on clinical care. Over the past 18 years, I have worked hard to deliver the best possible mental health care to children and adolescents with anxiety. An important component of this work is to partner with parents to increase their ability to provide support to children and adolescents living with anxiety.
