    Research Area: Clinical Science

    I study factors that contribute to the severity and persistence of pediatric chronic pain.  Every child experiences pain differently.  My research broadly focuses on the biological, psychological, and contextual factors that influence 1) how children experience pain; 2) parent and child responses to pain; and 3) the impact of pediatric chronic pain on daily functioning and long-term health outcomes.   

    Clinically, my current focus is in pediatric gastroenterology providing pediatric psychology services for children and teens with irritable bowel syndrome, encopresis, constipation, or toileting concerns.
