My research interests include both child clinical issues such as child maltreatment fatalities, child neglect, and infant assessment, as well as pediatric psychology issues including prematurity and Sickle Cell disease. I also have interest in training early childhood professionals and school counselors in issues related to early childhood mental health. My clinical practice is centered around assessment of infants, children, and adults, and I particularly work in areas of developmental and trauma assessment.
