I am a clinical psychologist with a specialty in pediatric psychology.  I utilize cognitive behavioral therapies to help children cope with and better manage medical conditions and symptoms, while children are hospitalized at Riley Hospital, and through the Riley Pain Center. I am particularly interested in helping children cope with chronic and acute pain conditions. In addition to clinical work, I am involved in research to help us better understand how psychological factors affect pain and how we can better treat children’s pain.
