Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include pediatric mood and anxiety disorders, developmental trauma disorder, psychodynamic psychotherapy (including play therapy), and family therapy. If you are a new patient who wishes to work with me, please first call 720-777-6200 to schedule for an intake appointment at the Pediatric Mental Health Institute at Colorado Children's Hospital. Based on the level of needs, the initial evaluator or/and the therapist will help schedule an appointment with me for psychiatric consultation.

Care Philosophy
I strive to work together with pediatric patients as well as their caregivers. This is because I believe the whole family system is critical to patients' healing and recovery. Also, I practice abiding by the ethical principle in medicine to "do no harm," which is frequently neglected.

Public Speaking
