I am a pediatric psychologist in the Departments of Neuropsychology and Neurology at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. As a pediatric psychologist, I complete evaluations for children and adolescents within a multidisciplinary headache clinic and provide treatment for youth experiencing persistent headaches that may or may not result from a traumatic brain injury.  


My primary areas of research include exploring resilience and adaptation in pediatric pain populations and examining psychosocial factors that influence the pain experience, response to treatment, and functional outcomes.
