Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include providing evidenced based treatment (CBT, ERP, ACT) for children and families presenting with somatic symptoms disorder (functional neurological disorders, chronic pain, etc), internalizing issues (anxiety, trauma, etc.) and complex co-morbid medical conditions. Family involvement and family therapy for families of children & teens with somatic symptoms, complex medical presentations, and psychological concerns is also important within my clinical practice. I also enjoy supporting youth and their families with managing behavioral sleep problems.
