Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.

ABOUT ME

Working as a child psychologist reminds me every day of the importance of strong family relationships for both children's and their parents' well being. I work carefully with families to understand the whole context of their child's struggles, and match their needs with evidence based therapies, particularly cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and parenting support.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

In my research, I focus on how to prevent the effects of family trauma from being transferred across generations in families. My research has funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and the Centers for Disease Control, along with numerous private foundations. My goal is to help us learn how to strengthen families across generations after traumatic events.
