"While working as a general pediatrician in Washington, I was startled by the frequency and severity of child behavioral and mental-health problems that I was called upon to manage. Families asked me to help because, they said, specialty care was very difficult to access. I eventually decided to make this my professional focus, and I obtained additional training in psychiatry so that I could start addressing these unmet child mental-healthcare needs. I am fortunate to have the opportunity at Children’s to help primary care providers and families throughout the state improve the lives of children."
