Research Interests:
My professional and clinical interests are broad based and quite varied. I have extensive clinical experience with children and adolescents who have developmental disabilities, anxiety disorders, disruptive behavior disorders, and depressive disorders. I especially enjoy the challenge of providing a multidimensional, multidisciplinary and multimodality approach to the children to whom I provide evaluations and treatment.
