About the Practice

cropped-jo_2017_familyphotoshoot.jpgHello and welcome to my practice. I am a child psychologist with over 17 years experience helping children, teens, and their families overcome a variety of anxiety disorders and stress-related concerns. In 2005, I began the practice after having completed a post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). Since then, I have treated numerous children and teenagers for anxiety, and have coached parents in helping anxious children at home. Working closely with children and their families has shown me how truly resilient and brave children can be.

On my way to becoming a psychologist, I earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Saint Louis University (2002). My dissertation research examined the impact of pediatric cancer on healthy siblings of children diagnosed with cancer. I completed my residency in pediatric psychology at Children’s Hospital of Michigan / Wayne State University prior to beginning my fellowship in pediatric psychology at Cincinnati Children’s. In addition to my clinical work, I have published clinical research studies in several peer reviewed journals. I am also past President of the Cincinnati Academy of Professional Psychology.
