Specializing in the Treatment of OCD and Anxiety
in Children and Adolescents
I utilize evidence-based practices, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and play therapy techniques, in the treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders.
I conduct psychoeducational evaluations, involving intelligence and academic achievement measures, and consult with school staff to assist in the creation of effective interventions.
I consult with parents and/or school staff to assist in the understanding of children's unique cognitive, social, and emotional abilities and needs. Together, we create and evaluate plans to best meet these needs.
I am a Clinical Psychologist, specializing in the care of children and adolescents. I have extensive training and experience in the treatment of a broad range of psychopathology and specialize in the treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders. For more than a decade, I have had the privilege of working with families to facilitate positive change and assist in the achievement of unique goals.
Prior to opening my Yarmouth practice in August of 2016, I was on the faculty at Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine, where I served as a clinical and testing supervisor to predoctoral interns and postdoctoral fellows and taught seminars on trauma and psychological testing.
My goal is to create an environment in which children and adolescents feel safe to express themselves in the manner which is most natural, whether that is art, talk, or play. I work closely with parents and develop specialized approaches to best meet the unique needs of my young patients. I strive to really get to know the families I work with and incorporate their interests and talents into treatment interventions. The majority of my patients look forward to our meetings and find enjoyment in the challenging work we do together, as do I.
