She completed fellowships at Lurie Children's Hospital of Northwestern in Chicago and at the University of Illinois at Chicago for further specialization in child anxiety. Her research interests include the identification and treatment of anxiety in youth. She has consulted with schools in several states working to help staff identify anxious children and implement preventative programs. She has recently relocated to Bethesda to work at the National Institutes of Heath with Dr. Daniel Pine and the Section on Development and Affective Neuroscience (SDAN) team.
We hope to see everyone at the workshop!
