I love getting creative with clients and figuring out the strategies that will work best for you and your child. I earned my M.A. and Psy.D in Clinical Child Psychology at the University of Indianapolis and my B.A. in Psychology at Gannon University. I have experience working with children and adolescents in outpatient clinics, as well as residential and therapeutic school settings. My training includes diagnosing and treating a wide range of mental health issues; including but not limited to ADHD, ODD, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and trauma related disorders, family disruptions, and substance abuse. However, I also believe that children are more than their diagnosis and work to help all the children I treat live up to their full potential.
