I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in providing evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to youth and adults presenting with anxiety related disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders (e.g. tic disorders, trichotillomania, skin picking), depression, difficulty coping with pediatric illnesses, and disruptive behavior. I received my B.A. in Psychology from Villanova University and both my M.Ed. and Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of Florida. I completed my clinical internship in Child and Pediatric psychology at the Texas Child Study Center affiliated with Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, TX.Specific to pediatric illness, I specialize in working with youth who are experiencing post concussive syndrome and have difficulty with pain management and adjustment to the medical regimes associated with concussions.I was born and raised in St. Petersburg and am very familiar with the school and hospital systems in the area. I incorporate consultation with medical and educational providers to ensure a multidisciplinary and integrated treatment approach is utilized.
