Our primary goal is to (1) better understand risk factors leading to the development of anxiety in children and adolescents and (2) provide treatments that work for kids experiencing symptoms of an anxiety disorder, including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Hair Pulling Disorder (Trichotillomania), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Separation Anxiety Disorder (SAD), Tic Disorders, Social Phobia, and Specific Phobias.
Recently, we have broadened our focus to also examine health outcomes related to childhood food allergies. Specifically, we are interested in the relationship between food allergies, anxiety, and parenting. Our primary goal is to (1) understand risk factors that may lead to the development of anxiety in children with food allergies and to (2) develop interventions designed to improve quality of life for children with food allergies.
