I am a Licensed Psychologist in Kansas and have 10 years of experience working with kids, adolescents, and families. I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology with specialized training in child and family psychology. I completed a pre-doctoral internship in pediatric psychology and a post-doctoral fellowship in child and adolescent psychology. I have advanced competency working with kids and families with anxiety and depressive disorders, behavior issues, social stressors, and academic problems. My work with families has included inpatient (medical and psychiatric hospitalization) and outpatient clinics (behavioral health, sleep disorders).
As a member of a military family, I have a special interest working with families facing challenges unique to military life (e.g., deployment, relocation, parental separation).
Parenting is tough! My goal is to work with you to identify goals, build skills, and make helpful changes.
