I specialize in providing individual psychotherapy to children and adolescents with a wide-range of emotional and behavioral difficulties. Although my expertise is with youth with mood disorders, including anxiety and depression, I also have extensive experience with youth with social and behavioral struggles. My approach is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in focus, as it is best supported by research, children and adolescents respond to it very positively, and because I have found it to produce immediate and long-lasting improvements in functioning.
I also conduct comprehensive assessments in: 1) psychological functioning: deficits in social, emotional, and/or behavioral ability 2) educational functioning: intelligence, achievement, learning disabilities. These assessments are ideal for informing school placement decisions, obtaining academic accommodations, and determining domains of difficulty that require intervention.
I completed my Internship at Children's National Medical Center and Postdoctoral Fellowship at the National Institute of Mental Health. I won the Shafer Award for Excellence in Psychotherapeutic Counseling and the Harrower Award for Excellence in Psychodiagnostic Assessment. I have published over 40 articles and given over 100 presentations.
