In addition, he serves as a commissioner to the Delaware Health Care Commission, appointed by Governor John Carney.

Dr. Harrison has a special focus on ADHD, behavior disorders in childhood, anxiety and mood disorders, and parenting.
I developed a passion for psychology in college. I always knew I would work with children, and if I wasn’t a psychologist, I would be an elementary school teacher. I feel very blessed. I’m a big kid who never really grew up – every day is one to relish.

I spend most of my time as a clinician, but I’m involved in a couple of research projects: outcomes of parent-child conduct clinic group treatment, and outcomes for ADHD diagnostics. My interests are figuring out the connection between learning problems and children with ADHD.
