Integrated pediatric primary care, psychological assessment, and CBT for children and adolescents
As a pediatric psychologist, I know that behavioral health is key to a child's overall wellness. I am committed to compassionate and comprehensive pediatric psychology healthcare, including valuing an interdisciplinary approach to treatment. I hold a philosophy of acceptance of diversity and adherence to issues surrounding multicultural sensitivity, of all those in our community, by race, culture, religion, gender identity, and sexual orientation. Practicing from a patient- and family-centered perspective, from a preventative intervention lens, is of utmost importance to me.
