Why I Treat Children

Since I was very young, I knew I would work with children and teens, either as a teacher or as a pediatrician. I fell into psychology in college and then discovered that as a pediatric psychologist I could do both.  Now I get to care for and teach children in a medical setting, all at the same time.

How I Try to Make A Difference

Over the years, I have recognized just how complicated health care can be. I have learned that children and families seem to do better when they understand their diagnosis and treatment options and are motivated to take part in their own care. As such, I spend a good deal of time with families making sure they understand what lies ahead.  In addition, I train new psychologists so that others can carry on the tradition of providing mental health care and support to families dealing with medical illnesses.
