"My clinical work and research are focused on helping youth with ADHD and their families be resilient and successful. Specifically, I am interested in helping families engage in multi-modal treatments for ADHD in the service of improving the long-term mental and physical health for these young people. I enjoy working with children, teenagers, and young adults with ADHD and their parents. I also have a special interest in behavioral treatments for co-occurring anxiety and ADHD."
  • Biography

    Originally a native of Gig Harbor, WA, I received my doctorate in clinical psychology at Arizona State University. My graduate research training focused on family-based prevention of mental health problems in high-risk populations. I completed my clinical internship and postdoctoral training at Duke University Medical Center, where I specialized in assessment and treatment of ADHD and related disorders. I am excited to return to the Pacific Northwest to join the staff at Seattle Children's Hospital!

    Research Description

    My research focuses on health behaviors for children and adolescents with ADHD, including substance use, physical activity, and sleep. My colleagues and I study how these behaviors affect long-term functioning in order to design programs to promote healthy behaviors in childhood. I am also interested in strategies for improving appropriate treatment of ADHD through the teen years with the goal of promoting successful transitions into young adulthood.
