Research Interests

My research centers on promoting positive child, adolescent, and family adjustment for patients with rehabilitation health needs. My current research projects are focused in two areas: 1) investigating the effectiveness of a brief-cognitive behavioral treatment for children and adolescents with persistent post-concussive symptoms, and 2) evaluating neurocognitive and psychosocial functioning in pediatric spina bifida.
