My research focuses on innovative assessment and treatment strategies to effectively restore a child’s mental health in the context of his or her family. I strongly believe that comprehensive assessments lead to treatment plans that can be tailored to each child’s unique needs.
Here at The Ohio State University our clinical research is changing how care is provided at the national level. I’m impressed with how adeptly our trainees move forward while bringing our mission of excellence to others.
In my free time I enjoy facilitating the music group at my church and relaxing with my family. I also enjoy being outdoors and traveling, when I am able.
