My interests include developing comprehensive treatment for children and adolescents, and their families through psychotherapy and pharmacological management through my work at Challenges. I am interested in understanding resilience in children and adolescents, and how early childhood disruptive behaviors associated with trauma, loss, divorce, and family dysfunction, can be better treated in order to have more positive outcomes. I also have an interest in school based mental health care. Other interests include teaching medical students, residents and fellows.
