Research Interests:
My clinical interests include psychological assessment and psychotherapy with children and families. I have particular interests in infant mental health, clinical work with high-risk families with young children, and treatment of children and families who have experienced trauma such as abuse or neglect. I also have an interest in inpatient and outpatient work with older children and adolescents. Research interests include questions related to developmental psychopathology, attachment, and risk and resilience.
