My Role at Linden BP:
I am the founder and owner of LBP (formerly called Rocky River Behavioral Pediatrics) and a practicing psychologist within this multidisciplinary team.  I am one of the only independent practice providers in NE Ohio with extensive training and expertise in the subspecialty field of pediatric psychology.  My practice includes behavioral medicine (the interplay between physical disease and psychological practice), as well as the more general practice of child psychology.  I evaluate and manage psychological problems of children ranging in age from the first year of life through young adulthood, including concerns related to development and/or behavioral concerns, autism spectrum disorders, childhood depression and anxiety, difficulties with peers/ socialization, academic difficulties, family stress, and parenting. In addition, I treat children with tic disorder/tourette’s, chronic pain (headache, abdominal pain, fibromyalgia), enuresis/encopresis, eating disorders, and sleep disturbance.

Personal Passions:
I have a love for children and a desire to help each child be at his/her best.  Whether working with children in my office or being home with my own children, I fully enjoy my experiences with them.  I live on the westside of Cleveland and feel grateful to serve the children and families in my community.  I am married with two boys, who are my greatest pleasure.  We also have two cats and two dogs, including two Bernese Mountain Dogs named Henry and Beckett, whose favorite activities are working as “therapy” dogs, playing in the snow, and getting cuddles. 

Fun Facts:
I enjoy all things in the kitchen – cooking, baking, and experimenting with recipes, especially when I get to do these things with one of my children. And the joke around my family is that I take pleasure in feeding others, not just people but the furry family members too! 

Why I love being at Linden BP:
Simply put: I love what I get to do and who I get to do it with! I am truly grateful to work with such a talented group of individuals who share in their commitment to serving children and families.  And, I have passion for turning challenging moments into opportunities that can serve children and teens throughout their lives.
