Years at Tulane:
The main focus of my clinical work is assessment and treatment with young children and families at the Orleans and Terrebone Parish Early Childhood Supports and Services, a community-based early childhood intervention program. My clinical training was with the Tulane/JPHSA Infant Team, where I provided treatment to maltreated children, biological parents, and foster parents. My research interests include, but are not limited to, attachment disturbances, emotion recognition in young children, preschool disruptive behavior, and parent-child relationships. Current research focuses on changes in maternal perception throughout the course of an evidenced-based dyadic therapy model, Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
