Dr. Rork's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rork "I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the evaluation and treatment of children, adolescents, and their families. I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology (child specialization) from West Virginia University in 2007, where my training focused extensively on helping children overcome their fears of social situations and specific situations (e.g., separating from parents, falling asleep on their own at night). I also received comprehensive training in helping parents manage the behavior of their young children. Following my doctoral degree, I completed a two-year fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and became a licensed psychologist in Ohio in 2010.I treat children and adolescents presenting with a variety of mental health concerns, but have a specialization in and passion for treating child anxiety (including children who have been a victim of bullying). I also have a particular interest in working with children demonstrating attention difficulties and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity (including ADHD) and related concerns, and have worked with many families to help them alleviate the impact of these symptoms at home, at school, and in other environments.Since moving to Northeast Ohio, I have been not only a clinician, but also have held academic and medical staff positions at several academic medical centers and universities. I have many years of experience as a clinical child and pediatric psychologist providing outpatient psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and their families, and also have supervised several medical students and psychology graduate and undergraduate students in their clinical and research projects.I take a collaborative approach to treatment, working closely with children and families (and other medical providers and school personnel, as appropriate) to help them achieve their treatment goals. Further, I use evidence-based treatments routinely throughout my practice, to help achieve each child's and family's treatment goals in an effective and efficient manner.In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, watching and attending sporting events, spending time outdoors, cooking, and exercising."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rork "I am a cognitive-behavioral therapist, and use evidence-based treatments throughout my practice. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) emphasizes use of short-term and solution-focused interventions to decrease mental and behavioral health symptoms. While CBT involves regular collaboration between the therapist and each child/family, the therapist's role often is to teach each child and/or family skills which they may use out-of-session to help decrease symptoms and concerns. CBT therapists also often collaborate with others (i.e., school personnel), as permitted by release of information, to obtain information about each child and his/her concerns, and to implement strategies in multiple environments, as necessary, able, and appropriate. Evidence-based treatments are those that have research and scientific evidence which has shown them to be effective. These treatments often measure symptoms over time to track treatment progress and demonstrate effectiveness."
