Personal Statement

My clinical and research work focus on the use of Telemental Health (TMH) as an approach to address the disparities in access to evidence-based mental health care for youth living in underserved communities. In 2001, I developed the Telemental Health Service at Seattle Children’s Hospital which provides care to youth living in multiple communities of Washington and Alaska. My clinical work focuses on the evaluation and treatment of youth with mood disorders, with focus on bipolar disorder.
