My clinical and teaching work focus on children and adolescents with anxiety, tic, and impulse control disorders, particularly obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette’s disorder, selective mutism, and trichotillomania. I am interested in working with patients with complex combinations of disorders. I also collaborate with the International Adoption Clinic of Riley Hospital, as many of those young patients have particular issues with anxiety and trauma histories. I work on insuring that faculty, clinical staff, and residents write well-documented medical reports that meet audit standards from governmental agencies.
