As a pediatric nurse for 15 years I am in a unique position to see the child in a biopsychosocial perspective. The major question in mental health in children is how is this problem affecting social, emotional and physical development? Are medications always the answer, of course not, but when the child/adolescent is having a problem that affects ability to function in a developmentally appropriate manner, intervention becomes necessary. This can be in the form of medication and/or therapy. Another important note, in working with children/adolescents, one must also include the parents in treatment.

My areas of expertise are anxiety disorders, depression and adhd in children and adolescence as well as helping children/adolescents navigate the anger, frustration, depression, anxiety and grief of having a chronic and/or degenerative illness.

My past experience in working with children and adolescents included a variety of rare diseases such as osteogenesis imperfecta, all types of muscular dystrophy, childhood cancer and metabolic bone diseases.
