    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My clinical interests include the assessment and treatment of common childhood difficulties (e.g. toileting/feeding/sleeping difficulties, tantrums, noncompliance, etc.), more severe behavior problems, and parent coaching.

    My research interests are primarily focused on evaluating how to better assess and treat the underlying factors that influence pediatric behavioral health difficulties through a transdiagnostic framework. I am particularly interested in development, empirical evaluation, and dissemination of innovative exposure-based clinical interventions, in conjunction with parent coaching, aimed at treating pediatric irritability and conduct problems.
