Andrew’s assessment and treatment approach is founded within a cognitive-behavioral framework. He has experience diagnosing and treating a range of disorders in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, including depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar I and II disorder, autism spectrum disorder, anger, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, behavior disorders, learning and developmental disorders, intellectual disability, oppositional defiant disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and schizoid personality disorder.

Andrew is currently developing his doctoral dissertation. Broadly, the project will utilize a clinical sample of adolescents and examine their perceptions of their parents’ coparenting practices and the manner in which these appraisals influence their psychological and behavioral functioning. In his free time, Andrew enjoys watching sports, cooking, and exploring Chicago with his fiance and friends.
