Clinical interests: I work in an interdisciplinary outpatient clinic for children and youth with chronic pain, providing assessment and treatment. Our framework as a team is biopsychosocial, and involves close collaboration with a full team including anaesthesiology, psychiatry, physiotherapy, social work, nursing and pharmacy. My primary therapeutic orientation is CBT, but also incorporates behavioural principles as well as mindfulness, in individual treatment as well as group format. Given the biopsychosocial approach, the treatment focus is both on pain itself, as well as factors that affect health and functioning, such as sleep, co-morbid mental health concerns, or the impact of co-existing medical conditions.
