My interests include medically complex children and children with chronic medical illnesses and psychosocial dysfunction, sexual education and trauma, integrated interdisciplinary care, and school based delivery of care. I utilize an interdisciplinary treatment model that is culturally sensitive and uniquely tailored address the health needs of communities of color.
